GENTEXT/REMARKS/1.  This message announces the Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 mission essential task list (METL), training and readiness (T-R) manual, and training management team (TMT) review battle rhythm.  This will enable the operational force (OPFOR), advocates, formal learning centers, and major subordinate commands to plan and execute working group (WG) related actions over the next FY.  There are 99 Training and Education Command (TECOM) sponsored and 9 Marine Forces Command (MARFORCOM) sponsored WGs scheduled for FY 2019.  Commanding General (CG), TECOM has determined in reference (a) that the WGs listed in paragraph 3.B.  meet the mandate of reference (b).
2.  Force Readiness Branch, G-3 MARFORCOM serves as the Service lead agency in the coordination and conduct of all METL WGs.  Deputy Commandant (DC), Combat Development and Integration (CDI) and MARFORCOM, supported by advocate representation, Marine Forces, unit subject matter experts (SME), and a TECOM representative supporting the T-R for the specific community of interest (COI) will host OPFOR METL workshops.  Installation core METL workshops will be hosted by Marine Corps Installations Command, and supported by DC, CDI and MARFORCOM.  The schedule for METL reviews is incorporated into the T-R manual and TMT schedule (paragraph 3.B).
2.a.  Request all COI WGs conduct internal staff reviews of their current mission statements and METLs prior to convening or arriving to workshops.  Mission statements can be found on the Total Force Structure Division website https:(slant)(slant)tfsms.mccdc.usmc.mil/portal/page/portal/TFSMS/welcome.
2.b.  Organizational structure, table of equipment, training events and output capabilities need to be aligned to COI mission statements and their METLs.
3.  Marine Air-Ground Task Force Training and Education Standards Division (MTESD) serves as TECOM's lead agency for the coordination, conduct, and funding of all T-R and TMT WGs.  Each WG is intended to be a Service-level forum comprised of occupational SMEs dedicated to reviewing, validating, and revising T-R manuals and reviewing and prioritizing training issues as appropriate.  MTESD task analysts will coordinate with occupational field (OccFld) and aviation community SMEs to determine T-R manual and TMT WG agendas for participants, as well as supervise the conduct of the WGs.
3.a.  Major pre-WG actions will occur per the standard T-R plan of actions and milestones detailed below:
3.a.1.  Six months prior:  Request front-end analysis/occupatinal field study be initiated as required to support T-R WG task analysis. 
3.a.2.  Six months prior:  SME support requirements identified.
3.a.3.  Three months prior:  Pre-WG message released containing web link with read ahead information for WG attendees.  Attendees to ground T-R manual WGs are expected to be familiar with references (c) and (d), while attendees of aviation T-R WGs are expected to be familiar with references (e) and (f); as well as their respective T-R manual prior to commencement of the WG.
3.b.  FY 2019 METL, T-R manual, and TMT review battle rhythm.  The FY 2019 METL, T-R manual, and TMT WG schedule is as follows (read in three columns).  The dates below are subject to change based on OccFlds or community requirements; a message will be released prior to each WG confirming actual date and location.
