Soldiers rely on their weapons to reign supreme on the battlefield. Working with everything from handguns and shotguns, to sniper rifles and ballistic missiles, the Small Arms/Artillery Repairer’s main responsibility is to maintain the electronic systems that keep these weapons firing for the Army National Guard.
Some of the Skills You’ll Learn
Electronic and mechanical principles and concepts
Understanding schematics, drawings, blueprints, and wiring diagrams
Operating electronic, electrical, and mechanical test equipment
Preference for work requiring accuracy and attention to detail
Interest in working with weapons
Through your training, you will develop the skills and experience to enjoy a civilian career as an electronic mechanic, an avionics technician, or a missile facilities repairer with firms that design, build, and test weapons for the military.
Earn While You Lean
Instead of paying to learn these skills, get paid to train. In the Army National Guard, you will learn these valuable job skills while earning a regular paycheck and qualifying for tuition assistance.
Job training for Small Arms/Artillery Repairers consists of 10 weeks of Basic Training, where you’ll learn basic Soldiering skills, and 7 weeks of Advanced Individual Training. Training consists of both classroom and field work.
