Next MCSOC Course 18-22 September 2017

MARSOC is looking for some hard charging combat support Marines to join our team. We bring top candidates interested in serving a tour of duty with MARSOC as a Special Operations Capability Specialists for a five-day orientation course to see if it's the right fit at the right time.

The MARSOC Combat Support Orientation Course (MCSOC) is a 5-day course that will afford eligible Marines interested in a tour within MARSOC the opportunity to interface with senior enlisted leaders in the community and participate in training ranging from MOS-specific, physical performance and resiliency, to mental performance and mental fitness. Upon completion, Marines will receive feedback on general and MOS-specific skills required for successful tours within MARSOC.

Special operations are conducted by small teams in hostile, denied, or politically sensitive areas. Success depends on the skill, maturity, and professionalism of each member of the team. SOCS are Marines who provide combat support expertise in intelligence, fire support, communications, and military police as part of a Marine Special Operations Team.
