The U.S. Army's Master Marksmanship Training Course (MMTC) is a five-week effort intended to provide NCOs with the knowledge and skill sets necessary to return to their units ready to teach and certify Soldiers in marksmanship. The course is overseen by the Army Marksmanship Unit, with a transfer to the 316th Cavalry Brigade planned for either later this year or in 2016. The course is comprised of four levels -- basic rifle marksmanship, short-range marksmanship, mid-range marksmanship and master trainer. Students in the course become instructors and teach each other so they can go back to their units and instruct their units on how to run a basic rifle marksmanship (BRM) course and how to apply the fundamentals of marksmanship properly.
