Next MCSOC Course 27-31 August 2018

MARSOC is looking for some hard-charging combat support Marines to join our team. Top candidates interested in serving a tour of duty with MARSOC as a Special Operations Capability Specialist may be invited to five-day orientation course to see if it's the right fit at the right time. Fill out the form below to request more information.

The MARSOC Combat Support Orientation Course (MCSOC) gives eligible Marines the opportunity to interface with senior enlisted leaders, and to participate in MOS-specific, physical performance/resiliency, and mental performance/fitness training. Upon completion, Marines will receive additional feedback on the skill sets required for a successful tour with 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, EOD and canine operations as part of a Marine Special Operations Team.
