Marines go through Army training not kriegsmarine training because they'll(Marines) will learn marksmanship, physical training, weapons discipline and other skills sailors don't need. They also learn basic survival skills and amphibious Assault training(river and lake class)
amphibious Assault classes
There three classes river, lake, and ocean. All have the same goal but different ways of execution. The multi purpose main training is: get out of boat into the water to avoid enemy fire, get infantry on beach, get machine guns on beach, have infantry take the beach defenses, then live of the land wile waiting for the heer to encircle the enemy or to reenforce or excuse the marines. This how it should go on lakes.
For safety reasons both sides must wait till the marines are 10 feet on the beach or bank to fire, unless the bottom of the river can be felt without submerging ones head and the current is small to non existent.
New Germany has no costal territory's so this training is overlooked.
