or Marine Corps Reserve and those who are sons or  daughters  of  career  Marines  receive  appoint- ment  preference. NAVAL  RESERVE  OFFICER TRAINING  CORPS  (NROTC) PROGRAM At  the  beginning  of  their  sophomore  year  of college,  selected  NROTC  midshipmen  may  elect the   Marine   option.    This  option  allows  the midshipmen to pursue specialized courses during their last 2 years of college. Between the third and fourth   years,   Marine   option   personnel   attend training  at  Officer  Candidate  School  (OCS), Quantico,  Virginia.  Upon  successful  completion of  their  college  course  of  study,  naval  science courses, and training at OCS, the midshipman is appointed a second lieutenant in the Marine Corps or Marine Corps Reserve. (For a general discus- sion  of  the  NROTC  Program,  see  chapter  10.) PLATOON  LEADERS  PROGRAM The  Platoon  Leaders  Program  is  a  Marine Corps  officer  program  for  college  students attending   regionally   accredited   colleges.   Upon successful  completion  of  all  requirements,  they are  commissioned  as  second  lieutenants  in  the Marine  Corps  Reserve. OFFICER  CANDIDATES  CLASS This Marine officer program is open to college seniors  and  graduates.  Candidates  undergo  10 weeks of precommissioning training, followed by appointment   to   commissioned   grade.   Aviation and   law   options   are   available   to   males;   law options  are  available  to  females. MARINE  CORPS  ENLISTED COMMISSIONING   EDUCATION PROGRAM  (MECEP) This  program  is  open  to  all  qualified  active- duty enlisted marines enrolled in an undergraduate program  leading  to  a  baccalaureate  degree.  A regular commission is awarded upon graduation. Noncommissioned   officers   of   the   Marine Corps whose service has been meritorious may be appointed to commissioned grade in the Marine Corps   Reserve.   They   must   be   serving   in   the Marine   Corps   and   be   recommended   by   their commanding  officer. They  also  must  have established their mental fitness by attaining an educational level prescribed of  the  Marine  Corps. WARRANT   OFFICER by the Commandant Sergeants  and  above,  with  a  minimum  of  5 and  a  maximum  of  14  years  of  enlisted  service, may  apply  for  appointment  to  the  grade  of warrant  officer,  W-1,  in  the  Marine  Corps  and Marine   Corps   Reserve.   Selections   provide   for advancement to warrant rank in certain admin- istration  and  technical  fields  for  marines  who display   exceptional   proficiency   and   leadership potential. LIMITED  DUTY  OFFICERS Permanent  warrant  officers,  W-2  through W-4,  may  be  appointed  to  commissioned  grades for limited duty in the technical field in which they are proficient. They first must have completed at least  10  and  not  more  than  20  years  of  active service. OFFICER  TRAINING The  Marine  Corps  University  at  Quantico, Virginia,  is  the  principal  media  through  which Marine  officers  receive  their  formal  education. Upon  entry  into  the  Marine  Corps,  all  second lieutenants are sent to Basic School (fig. 14-6) for indoctrination   and   instruction   in   fundamental military subjects. Emphasis is placed on individual and  crew-served  infantry  weapons  instruction. Other subjects include marksmanship, small-unit tactics, basic administration, naval law, and small- unit leadership. Following graduation from Basic School,  most  officers  attend  a  follow-on  school in  their  military  occupational  specialty  (MOS) before being assigned duty with the Fleet Marine Force. Once  officers  complete  initial  FMF  and  non- FMF  tours,  they  become  eligible  for  assignment to  the  Amphibious  Warfare  School  at  Quantico or to another Marine or Army career-level school. Career-level   instruction   focuses   on   training Marine captains for company-level command and staff  duties  at  the  MEB  level.  Particular  emphasis is  placed  on  teaching  the  coordinated  employment of air, naval, and ground elements in amphibious operations. When   promoted   to   major,   Marine   officers become  eligible  for  assignment  to  the  Marine Corps Command and Staff College. The purpose 14-9
