Following career designation and four or more years of intelligence experience (usually around rank of Captain), all Marine Corps intelligence officers from the four specialty intelligence MOSs (0203, 0204, 0206, and 0207) merge into the 0202 MAGTF Intelligence Officer PMOS. The PMOS is granted upon completion of the 68 day MAGTF Intelligence Officers Course (MIOC) at MCIS aboard the NAS Oceana Dam Neck Annex, VA. The purpose of the course is to train Marine Corps Officers in multi-discipline combat intelligence tasks required to perform the duties of an 0202 MAGTF Intelligence Officer. Emphasis is placed on the intelligence tasks required of an intelligence officer serving with a MAGTF to be able to formulate plans, policies, and functions pertaining to intelligence operations. It will teach the Marine Corps Officer to act as a member of a JTF and its components under a full range of doctrinal mission profiles. Topics include: intelligence systems architecture and operation; tactical analysis; intelligence support to the staff planning process; IPB; national, theater, and tactical collections management; intelligence support to targeting; dissemination methodology and application; and intelligence operations in support of a MAGTF or JTF.
What is it like being a MAGTF Intelligence Officer?
After obtaining the 0202 PMOS, MAGTF Intelligence Officers are considered the subject matter experts on all intelligence disciplines and their application across the spectrum of military operations. They formulate plans, policies, and procedures pertaining to intelligence operations at all levels of the Operating Forces, Supporting Establishment, and Joint Commands.
