|From:||Marshal of the Corps Sean Niemeyer, Commandant of the RMMC|
|Re:||RMMC Specializations (Corps Directive 01-1605)|
One of my goals as Marshal of the Royal Manticoran Marine Corps is not only to build out the Royal Manticoran Marine Corps, but to also increase the number of avenues that members of tRMN may explore and participate in. One of the areas that is missing are specialties. While the RMN has technical specialties, the RMMC has no such program. Therefore, as of the date of this Order, by my hand, and by the authority of the Sovereign, Queen of Manticore Elizabeth III, I hereby institute the following specialization program within the RMMC.
Royal Manticoran Marine Corps Specialization Program
- All Marines will be broken down into three main groups: General Duty Marines, General Duty Marine Officers, and Specialists (Enlisted and Officer)
- General Duty Marine: Any individual of enlisted rank in the RMMC that has not chosen or trained for a specialization. No testing is required for this designation. This is the default designation for any enlisted Marine in the RMMC
- General Duty Marine Officer: Any individual of officer rank in the RMMC that has not chosen or trained for a specialization. No testing is required for this designation. This is the default designation for any Marine officer in the RMMC.
- Specialists: Any individual of enlisted or officer rank, who has trained for a specialization and met the requirements as set forth by the RMMC Academy Director, and as amended by any Corps Directive, to be recognized as a specialist in a certain area.
- Participation in the RMMC Specialization Program is completely VOLUNTARY and shall not be used as a basis for or in consideration for any promotion.
- In order to be officially recognized by the RMMC as a specialist, a Marine must meet any and all requirements as set forth by the RMMC Academy Director for each specialty as well as the following:
- Enlisted Marines must take at a minimum the Basic Rifleman’s Course and Damage Control Technician A as part of their coursework.
- Officers must take at a minimum the Advanced Rifleman’s Course and Damage Control Technician C as part of their coursework.
- A Marine may take and complete the coursework for any of the specialties outlined in this Corps Directive and be considered a specialist in multiple technical areas.
