USMC  DRILL INSTRUCTOR SCHOOL
                       PAGE 2
Occupational Speciality (MOS) producing Drill Instructor Course (MOS 0911), the Series Officer Course (for newly reporting company grade officers), the Chief Drill Instructor Course, the Senior Drill Instructor Course, the Prior Drill Instructor Course, and the Company Commander's Course. The following is the syllabus for the Drill Instructor Course:
a. Scope. The scope and concept of the Drill Instructor School training sysllabus is four-fold: 
(1) First and foremost, it is a LEADERSHIP SCHOOL. Although an initial, comprehensive review of the basic leadership skills is provided, the focus is on the further devlopment of the student's (NCO/SNCO) leadership abilities and potential. The main effort converges on the concepts of positive, concerned and ethical leadership.
(2) Second, it is designed to provide the student with a thorough knowledge of those basic military subjects covered in recruit training.
(3) Third, it gives the student a thorough knowledge of the directives, regulations and procedures governing recruit training.
(4) Fourth, it physically prepares the student to lead his recruites during daily physical training periods. 


b. Academic Subjects
(1) Leadership Program. Designed to further develop the student's practical leadership abilities and broaden their perspectives. This will prepare them for the challeges of recurit training, and other challenges that they will face throughout their careers.
(2) Close Order Drill (COD). The training in this sub-course is designed to develop within each student the knowledge, ability and confidence to teach any aspect of close order drill in precise detail. Additionally, students are instructed in sword manual, command voice, cadence, parades, and ceremonies. Student progress is evaluated by practical application evaluations, oral presentations and a written final examination of the entire sub-course.
(3) Values Based Training. The training in this sub-course is designed to teach the student how to develop within recruites our Core Values of Honor, Courage and Commitment. This is accomplished through guided discussions, physical training, classes, and the Crucible. DI School students not only experience this event in the same manner recruits do, but they are also taught how to lead recruits through the Crucible.
(4) Standard Operating Procedures (SOP for Recruit Training). This instruction provides the student with knowledge of the training, organizational orders, and policies governing the conduct and supervision of recruit training.

(5) Physical Training (PT) 
(a) Physical training is one of the most visible illustrations of leader by example. Accordingly, your preparation in becoming a Drill Instructor must be designed to ensure confidence through endurance and agility. The conditioning program at Drill Instructor School is designed to develop the four components of physical fitness: strength, endurance, agility and coordination. Furthermore, the program familiarizes the student with the recruit physical training program. To evaluate the student's progress, the Marine Corps Physical Fitness Test and Combat Fitness Test is administered two times each. Although the school's PT program design is progressive in nature, it is in your best interest to report to DI School in a high first class PFT condition. Any students who runs over 23:00 minutes on the 3 mile run, achieves less then 10 pull-ups, or 80 crun crunches on the initial PFT will be placed on the Remedial PT program.

(b) Students are required to maintain a minimum 8:00 minute per mile pace on all individual and formation runs.
(6) Marine Corps Common Skills (MCCS). This sub-course presents a review of military subjects the students, as Drill Instructors, will teach or assist in teaching with a recruit platoon.
(7) Basic Warrior Training. Training in this area provides the students with the basic knowledge of field skills. This training will be conducted during the one week spent at Weapons & Field Training Battalion which is located at Camp Pendleton, California. Student progress is evaluated by practical appliation periods and a written final examination of the entrie course.
