Marine special operations officers graduating from Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command's Individual Training Course will be assigned a new primary Military Occupational Specialty. Previously, only enlisted Marines designated as Critical Skills Operators were awarded a PMOS of 0372, while SOOs were awarded an additional Military Occupational Specialty of 0370. The decision now allows SOOs to hold 0370 as a PMOS, and be managed with a development strategy that facilitates talent management of Special Operations Forces skills, standardized training, retention, promotions, command, professional military education and career progression, according to Maj. Gen Mark Clark, the MARSOC commander."Approval of the PMOS allows the Marine Corps the ability to develop Marine Special Operations Officers (SOOs), over a course of a career, as both fully proficient special operations professionals and well-rounded Marine Corps Air-Ground Task Force officers," said Clark.
