PREREQUISITE TRAINING MCES instructors integrate enablers (metal detectors, CREW systems, robots) in the practical application portion of CTC-1. Units are therefore encouraged to send selected Marines to CTCs 2 & 3 prior to executing CTC-1 practical application. Familiarization and proficiency with enablers significantly enhances the training benefit derived from practical application.
SUSTAINMENT TRAINING Units may request support with establishing training scenarios and evaluating execution of skills and knowledge learned during initial training and refined during unit training. Support can be scheduled to take place at HSTLs or during any battalion or company FEX.
C-IED INTEGRATION AT MWTC IED scenarios for integration during Mountain Exercise as well as C-IED evaluations are available to units as they train at MWTC. C-IED training support at MWTC is sustainment training and should follow sufficient initial training executed at a unit’s home station.
THREAT BRIEFS Current Geographic Combatant Command AO specific threat briefs, SIPR or NIPR, are available on request. For brief in conjunction with CTC training, request on TSR; outside CTC training, contact Intel SME.
