Mechanic & Maintenance Mechanic & Maintenance

GET BATTLE GEAR MISSION-READY

Guard mechanics can fix anything that needs maintenance or repair. And they work on equipment that other mechanics can only dream about: world-class tanks, giant cargo trucks, ultra-sensitive targeting radars and advanced helicopter avionics.

Like Guard Soldiers themselves, every piece of mechanized equipment must be ready to answer the call—for any mission, at any time. Mechanic and maintenance specialists fulfill that promise. Whether that’s performing maintenance on a suspension system or performing electronic diagnostics, the Guard trains trusted professionals.

    NOTE: Applicants not meeting the prerequisites listed on this page may still submit a warrant officer packet but must submit a separate Request for Waiver for each prerequisite not met. Each Request for Waiver required must be a separate memorandum, signed by the applicant, and providing rationale as to why the applicant feels that particular waiver should be granted. No waivers will be granted for E-4 and below.

    NOTE: Army National Guard programs and benefits are subject to change. Your local warrant officer recruiter has the most up-to-date information about job availability and bonuses in your state.
