The Basic Career Planner Course provides students with the basic capabilities necessary to obtain the primary MOS of Career Planner (4821) and to execute Headquarters Marine Corps enlisted retention policies.  Career Planners are the key to achieving these objectives.  Training includes detailed instruction in the following areas: Screening, Interviewing, Processing, Benefits, Sales and Administration necessary to implement the “contact to contract” process.

 

The course incorporates the ideas that have evolved from the Recruiting and Retention Training and Readiness (T&R) Manual, Course Content Review Board, Enlisted Retention Task Force, and Sergeants Major Symposiums.  Training takes place in a state of the art classroom and group rooms.
