This thesis evaluates the adequacy of the current training programs provided to Marine Corps financial officers with the primary Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) 3404. Using the responses from a financial training questionnaire which was distributed to Marine financial officers, and interviews with selected senior financial officers. The thesis explores how training programs can be enhanced to best prepare these officers for the 1990's. This research concludes that: (1) Financial officers will need to be versatile to deal with the changing financial systems in the 1990's. (2) The Financial Management Officers Course can be improved by adding a supervisory perspective of disbursing and exposure to the other financial management areas. (3) The Marine Corps Practical Comptrollership Course should be targeted at officers with approximately three years experience and an advanced course should be developed. (4) More intra-MOS training should be encouraged.
