    G.  Appointment
        (1) Selectees are slated to be appointed on or about 1 Feb 2018 at a ceremony aboard Marine Corps Base Quantico.  Selectees will report to the Commanding General, Marine Corps Combat Development Command (MCCDC), to attend the WOBC, which is scheduled to convene on 22 Jan 2018.  The mission of the WOBC is to train and educate newly appointed or commissioned warrant officers in the high standards of professional knowledge, esprit-de-corps, and leadership required to transition from enlisted Marine to officer with particular emphasis on the duties, responsibilities and warfighting skills required of a provisional rifle platoon commander.  Selectees must report no earlier than 1200 on 22 Jan 2018 and no later than 1700 on 22 Jan 2018.  The report date to the WOBC was modified in order to effectively screen selectees and ensure they meet appointment and training standards per reference (A).  Failure to do so may result in revocation of appointment.
