GENTEXT/REMARKS/1.  Our Marine Corps expeditionary logistics professionals must be adaptable critical thinkers who can anticipate transitions to fight and win across contested domains.  In coordination with Training and Education Command and Joint Logistics Enterprise stakeholders, we continuously work to increase training and education opportunities for our logistics community.  The Logistics Education Program (LEP) provides opportunities through educational institutions external to the Marine Corps with the purpose of broadening knowledge on joint, multi-national, and interagency logistics processes, practices, and technologies.
2.  In accordance with Ref A Marine Corps Logistics Operations Group (MCLOG) manages the Logistics Education Program (LEP).  MCLOG oversees the Marine Corps’s allocation of logistics training and education opportunities with other services and civilian/governmental agencies.  Courses associated with the LEP provide unique opportunities to expand the knowledge base of logisticians across the FMF and supporting establishment.
3.  Course dates are subject to change.  MCLOG maintains a SharePoint page that is updated regularly with information pertaining to the LEP Program.  Calling Messages, course dates, and other informational materials related to the LEP courses are available at:  https:(slash)(slash)usmc.sharepoint-mil.us/sites/TECOM_MCLOG_School/SitePages/Registrar.aspx.  Contact listed POCs if unable to navigate to LEP information.  Common access card certificates are required.  Each training and education course will be updated with dates, quotas, and registration information at the link above and via Calling Messages.
