Annual Training Requirements
In order to maintain basic competency in key areas, Civilian Marines are required to meet specific annual training requirements. Unlike professional development, which focuses on growing job related skills or leadership competencies; these requirements typically address specific personal safety, information security, or workplace environment needs.
Cyber Awareness Training
All civilian personnel are required to complete annual Civilian Cyber Awareness Training (CCAT) and it is required for all new hires prior to being granted access to a USMC network account. This includes:

  • Information Assurance Awareness (IAA)
  • Personally Identifiable Information (PII)
  • Lethal Keystrokes
