The Infantry Immersion Trainer is a facility meant for hands-on practical application of tactical skills and decision making.

The purpose of the trainer is to put Marines into a realistic environment to prepare them for deployments.

"If Marines believe they are in danger they will duck away from it and react," said Robert Thielen, the site manager for the Infantry Immersion Trainer. "When we see the Marines yelling and taking action we know that they believe this environment is real, which is exactly what this training is meant to do."

There are three Infantry Immersion Trainers in the United States, but Camp Pendleton is the only base with an indoor and oudoor environment.
