The six-week course begins with two weeks of academics where students learn how to more effectively manage battle staffs in the fields of intelligence, counterinsurgency operations, and amphibious operations, joint and interagency integration, and campaign planning. The goal is to increase proficiency in command and control, and the processes, systems and procedures of command and control. TMIC also features simulation exercises designed to put the Marines’ newly acquired skills to the test.
