Welcome to the United States Marine Corps Recruiters School. Here we screen and train Staff Noncommissioned Officers and Noncommissioned Officers to recruit and retain the high-quality individuals necessary to sustain the finest fighting force the world has ever seen.


We take our mission seriously and rally behind a "Protect the House" mantra, which extends to our homes, school house, Marine Corps and Nation. To be ready, we strive for balance of mind, body and spirit and never forget our responsibilities to others.


We own our mission by taking care of people.


Our staff is the best in the business. Each instructor earned credibility in the fleet before transitioning into successful careers as recruiters or career planners. Every classroom at Recruiters School is led by a hand-selected Marine who has faced the challenging demands of the recruiting and retention missions and emerged as a proven professional.


Throughout the school year, we offer five courses:


              Basic Recruiter Course                    

              Basic Career Planner Course

              Basic Prior Service Recruiter Course       

              Advanced Career Planner Course

              Reserve Career Planner Course


Each course equips our students with the skills required to forge a force that will fight and win on the 21st Century battlefield.


Please contact us if you have any questions. If you have already been selected to attend one of our courses, we look forward to your arrival. You can expect to be challenged. More importantly, you can expect to leave Recruiters School better prepared to succeed in work and in life.
