GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. The purpose of this MARADMIN is to solicit qualified Marines to apply for lateral move into primary MOS 0211, Counterintelligence/Human Intelligence (CI/HUMINT) Specialist for Fiscal Year 2020 (FY20). Manpower and Reserve Affairs (M&RA) has categorized the 0211 MOS as a critical career force skill shortage. The demand for qualified Marines to lateral move to this MOS will remain high for the foreseeable future.
2. CI/HUMINT Marines perform sensitive and complex intelligence operations in support of the Marine Air Ground Task Force (MAGTF) during garrison and deployed operations. They identify threats posed by hostile intelligence organizations or persons engaged in espionage, sabotage, subversion, or terrorism, collect information of intelligence value through interrogation, debriefing, screening, and/or liaison operations, and deploy with a MAGTF, other Services, and interagency partners to protect personnel, property, and national security information.
3. CI/HUMINT Marines directly contribute to the success of the Marine Corps’ mission. While the requisite technical and operational skills are learned through training, there are certain innate qualities which CI/HUMINT Marines must possess. CI/HUMINT Marines must have outstanding communication skills which enable them to interact with a wide variety of people under any circumstance. Intellect, flexibility, creativity, and diverse cultural experience are invaluable traits of CI/HUMINT Marines. The MOS requires a layered depth of character, morality, and maturity, and mission success relies heavily on interpersonal skills. Accordingly, Marines who apply for lateral move must have first proven themselves as high-quality Marines.
4. CI/HUMINT Marines undergo extensive training, operating both independently and as small teams in support of MAGTF/Joint Forces. In addition to entry level training, CI/HUMINT Marines attend Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape Training, Airborne Training, Defense Advanced Tradecraft Course, Defense Strategic Debriefing Course, Defense Language Institute and other language courses, Advanced Counterintelligence courses at the Joint Counterintelligence Training Activity, including Cyberspace related courses, mission specific tactical survival training packages, and many other intermediate and advanced courses hosted by the Marine Corps and the Joint Force.
5. During a career, CI/HUMINT Marines may be assigned to the Marine Corps Operating Forces, Supporting Establishment, Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command, Defense Intelligence Agency, Naval Criminal Investigative Service, Combatant Commands, and other specialized billets.
6. CI/HUMINT lateral move applicants must meet the following criteria:
6.a. Must be a volunteer Corporal, Sergeant, or Staff Sergeant of any MOS.
6.b. Must be interviewed and recommended for a lateral move by a panel of only Marine Corps CI/HUMINT personnel.
6.c. Must be a U.S. citizen.
6.d. Must possess a GT score of 110 or higher.
6.e. Must meet sensitive compartmented information (SCI) eligibility guidelines based on a single scope background investigation/T5 investigation.
6.f. Must be 21 years of age prior to graduation from the MAGTF CI/HUMINT Course.
6.g. Must have 60 months obligated service upon lateral move approval to the PMOS 0211.
6.h. Must submit to a Counterintelligence Scope Polygraph Examination.
6.i. Must possess a valid U.S. driver's license.
6.j. Must complete the HQMC (I) approved Pre-Resident Training (PRT) prior to attending the MAGTF CI/HUMINT Course.
6.k. Must be worldwide deployable when approved for lateral move into the 0211 MOS.
7. Marines approved for lateral move into the 0211 MOS may rate a substantial selective retention bonus (SRB). For example, FY19 first term Marines who reenlisted on a 72 month contract received 90,000 dollars in bonus pay. Upon successful completion of MOS training and subsequent award of MOS 0211, bonus payment will be paid based upon the SRB amount authorized at the time of reenlistment. Additionally, a corporal will receive a non-competitive promotion to sergeant in conjunction with a lateral move into CI/HUMINT once minimum TIG/TIS requirements are met.
8. Interested Marines should contact their Career Planner or Prior Service Recruiter to ensure they meet the prerequisites and to initiate the lateral move process. Qualified Marines should contact the nearest CI/HUMINT element to complete the 0211 interview process. Points of contact for CI/HUMINT Elements are:
