What schools can Marines attend?
After your MOS training what schools & courses can you attend ? (Ranger School for example)

Moved to the Ask A Marine forum so Marines can best answer this.

That's a huge question but some of the schools I've been to,
Infantry squad leaders course
Urban sniper course at tier 1
Designated marksman course
Personal security detail school at tier 1
Machine gunners course
Non lethal weapons course
Mcmap instructors course
Ranger school is open to Marine infantry but its hard to get a seat but why would you want to go to ranger school, join the army..
We don't wear tabs in the Marines.

It depends on your MOS. If you aren't Recon or MarSoc, forget Ranger School. The average Marine infantry NCO doesn't need that school anyway.
What other schools do you have in mind?
Jump school? Forget that too unless you have an MOS requiring jump training (rigger, Recon, MarSoc, ANGLICO, and very few others). It used to be you could ask for jump school as a reenlistment incentive, but I don't know if they still do that.

I wasn't saying I wanted to go to Ranger school although I have a brother in the Army 75th Ranger Regiment currently in Afghanistan. I just wanted to know the opportunities Marines have outside of their MOS school.

Once you get your MOS assigned and complete school....there is a training officer hidden somewhere who will determine what training is needed. You will be assigned to whatever slots need to be filled.
I don't know what MOS you are going to have but I have a hard time seeing a Airwing communications MOS being sent to jump school or the like.

Basically the Corps will send you to what is required, first, then what they think you NEED, second, and third, what you WANT.
In other words, if it will help you do your job, and/or be a better Marine, then they'll send you.
If it's just 'whiz bang cool' and doesn't much pertain to your line of work (Airborne, for example if you aren't in a unit that requires it) then it's unlikely as others have said.
I weep for what this country is becoming, and fear for my children and grandchildren's future if any more democrats gain national office. We lose more and more freedoms every single day to creeping nannystatism and those who vote for Democrats only want to increase that. Anyone voting for a 'dem' is someone who likely wants to take everything YOU have worked for and mortgage your kids future as well.
