Officer Candidates School Preparation

Besides weekly unit PT (physical training), Marine Options will participate in a FEX (Field Exercise) in the Fall, Bulldog Prep in the Spring, and a Mountain Warfare Training Center (MWTC) course during one summer in preparation for OCS. They will also learn all the basic skills required at OCS through classroom instruction and practical application.

The FEX, Bulldog Prep, and MWTC are designed to teach Marine Option midshipmen basic skills and introduce them to the chaotic and stressful environment of OCS.
