    So this morning, I got an early reville call from my unit. I've been voluntold to attend Corporal's Course next month. What can I expect there? They aren't telling me squat. All I have in mind is to get my service uniforms ready.

    Semper fi.

    Sup Devil? I never went but I have heard from others that the instructors are very picky. Keep PFT score up, know how to drill/march (cadence), uniform rules & regs, and hygiene to perfection. Other than that you should expect the normal uptightness of the course. But that comes with the territory of being a bunch of badass mofos. :D Rah

    It's a good course and will prepare you for promotion. Keep a positive attitude, study and it will be over before you know it. Never turn down the opportunity to attend a resident course, it's key to success in our Corps.

    they are always changing the courses...but expect drill, uniform inspections and probly a couple of written papers, at least 1 pft... and since cft season is coming maybe a cft in there as well. i was suposed to do that course at pendelton years ago but got injured in a dirtbike accident the day before(i strongly suggest against this) and never went. i did do sgts course last year and as long as you are in standards then it should be no big deal. good luck

    OP is probably already there, but its a good course. I was an instructor in Yuma before I became a hat, and the way it was run was more or less like a shorter version of Sgt's Course. Definitely worth doing if given the opportunity.

    Still here! Suppose to muster at the drill center on May 05, and then they will fly my ass to MCLB Albany, Georgia. My chain of command still isn't telling me squat. All I'm doing right now is preparing my uniforms, which gets pretty costly. Haha.

    I'm also trying to knock out the 2 MCIs that are opened so I can order the 8000 series.

    seems to be a silly question...but is this course so that you can be promoted to Cpl or because you got promoted?

    HAHAHA get ready to learn how to be a pog! dude corprals course is gay. youll probably run a pft and pt most mornings. youll learn gay shit like drill and sword manual and have to do a million uniform inspections. youll also have to drill a platoon from a card and do shit like learn to do a log book properly.
