The Intelligence Training Enhancement Program (ITEP) seeks to bring together the relevant training practices and Intelligence Community (IC) training and education standards to facilitate superior performance.

This goal is accomplished by harnessing expertise with personnel development, centered on intelligence competencies; providing a tailored and flexible training resource program designed to meet the training requirements of the operating forces.

The Regional Intelligence Training Centers (RITC) provide a centralized location for Marine Corps Intelligence Schools (MCIS) ITEP representatives to identify, refine, facilitate and/or deliver validated intelligence training solutions for Operating Forces, at both the individual and collective level.

The RITC staff can also provide a variety of facilities and teach, coach, and mentor support.
