Job DescriptionWith the Army National Guard's thousands of personnel and countless missions, the need for communications goes beyond vitally important to absolute necessity, because without ongoing and reliable communications, systems fail, orders do not get relayed, and missions come to a grinding halt.

That's why the Army National Guard fields the communications maintenance team – to keep the Army National Guard talking. Guard Radio Operator/Maintainers are primarily responsible for all maintenance checks and services on assigned radio communication equipment, allowing the Army to track and direct troop movements.

Become a Radio Operator/Maintainer and you will also gain the skills necessary for a future with civilian companies or Government agencies that design, repair, or make communications and electronic equipment. You may even get the opportunity to expand your certifications and credentials to make you that much more attractive to civilian employers.

Earn while you learn

Instead of paying to learn these skills, get paid to learn. 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 a Radio Operator/Maintainer consists of 10 weeks of Basic Training, where you'll learn basic Soldiering skills, and 13 weeks of Advanced Individual Training. Training consists of both classroom and field work.

Requires military enlistment. Applicants must meet minimum qualifications. Actual MOS assignment may depend on MOS availability. Benefits subject to change.
