May 21, 2014, NEW ORLEANS – Marine administrative message 231/14 announced the activation of an initial suite of language training courses on MarineNet as a part of the Regional, Culture and Language Familiarization Program. The language course is considered vital to the program.
The program ensures that Marine units are globally prepared and regionally focused so they are effective at navigating the culturally complex landscape while operating in the 21st Century.
The program is now operational for all 17 culture regions and is available for the ranks of O1 to O4, WO to CWO4 and E5. RCLF courses will be available for Marines in the ranks of E6-E7 by the summer of 2014. Courses for Marines in the ranks of CWO5, O5, and E8-E9 are still under development.
All Marines assigned a RCLF region are required to select a language and complete the associated blocks of RCLF education on MarineNet.
For details on how to enroll in or complete the program, refer to the MARADMIN.
