MARINE CORPS COMMON SKILLS (MCCS) HANDBOOK FOREWORD
1. MCCS Books 1A and 1B, Individual Training Standards, are published based on MCO 1510.89A, the Individual Training Standard (ITS) System for Marine Corps Common Skills. 2. MCCS Books 1A and 1B are for all Marines. However, the annual sustainment training for MCCS Books 1A and 1B is for PVT-GYSGT, WO1-CWO2, and 2nd LT-CAPT. 3. Following each ITS, you will find a box containing the words EVALUATION GUIDELINES TO BE USED DURING TRAINING. The purpose of this box is to provide the Marine with information regarding what is expected of him or her during evaluation of the ITS. It also provides the trainer/evaluator with expanded conditions, standards, and notes to help train the Marine and assess individual proficiency. When administrative notes are included, they explain, orient, and provide additional task-specific information.
