Can I become an Officer and serve in MOS 0372 at the same time?

Marines selected for assignment as Critical Skills Operators or Special Operations Officers attend ITC, a nine-month program that builds multidimensional operators capable of operating across the full spectrum of special operations, and aware of the strategic context in which they operate.

Officers will also attend a four week Team Commanders Course (TCC) directly after completion of ITC.

Officers are given the MOS 0370, Special Operations Officer. So to answer your question - technically, no.

Couple questions. One, do you know if tennis is offered as a sport on base? Always wanted to play! Two, I haven't got enough credits to become a officer, but I heard that if you show great leadership skills in boot camp there's a slim chance they'll send you to officer candidates school? Thanks!

I have seen some Marine Corps installations with Tennis Courts on them but I cannot speak to all of them. Never heard of a Recruit going through Recruit Training being switched out to go to OCS during said training. You are welcome to check out the various paths to becoming an Officer though.

Do you have any tips & websites or anything for the Asvab test because I don't know what to really I focus on and really study . I have the Asvab for dummies book & that's what I've been really studying with .

I suggest you lookup which MOS you’re interested in first. Find out what ASVAB scores you’ll need and maybe check out the Official ASVAB website to learn more about it. Get or buy ASVAB Study Guide 2014: ASVAB Test Prep with Practice Questions and study/practice the subject matter.

Yes. “For Enlisted Marines who desire to become a Marine Officer, there are four programs. You will be able to choose the program that is right for you based on your education and Active Duty or Reserve status.”
