Several Marines recently participated in a mock Battle Skills Test in November, 2017. The test, which is still under development by Marine Corps Training and Education Command, will be an annual requirement for Marines to 'get back to basics.' The BST program consists of 30 tasks, which are derived from entry level training. They are basic skills all Marines are expected to perform. The BST has been previously used in the Marine Corps and made its comeback on January 1, 2018.
