It is accessible from anywhere at any time, allowing schoolhouses to share resources and reducing needless duplication of curricula and training materials. TRM imports curricula developed and approved in the MCTIMS Curriculum Management Module (CMD) so that course administrators can upload materials and publish the courses in TRM. Unit Training personnel and Individual Marines can then search TRM to view published courses and download materials as needed.
