Marine TBS Sample Schedule


Below is an official Marine TBS schedule used with Alpha Company 2016. You can expect that your time at Camp Barrett will be HIGHLY similar to what is shown. While your daily routine at The Basic School (TBS) might vary slightly this year, the weekly layout is almost identical to what our interviewed TBS 2017 graduates went through.

As always, we can't stress enough the importance of preparation to ensure success in your Marine Corps career. Make it your top priority to have the proper gear and information prior to reporting to The Basic School.
