Fire Control Repairers are vital to combat success. From tanks and other combat vehicles, to infantry and artillery systems, the Fire Control Repairer ensures the tools used for battle continue to function properly, so the Army National Guard can face any challenge.
Your responsibilities will include maintenance and/or repair of: ballistic computers, a variety of laser enabled devices, optical equipment, and thermal imaging systems; commander's weapon station/auxiliary sights, aiming circles, image transfer assemblies, quadrants, mount assemblies, and fire control support equipment; test, measurement, and diagnostic equipment; and battlefield damage assessment and repair.
Some of the Skills You’ll Learn
• Electronic and mechanical principles and concepts
• Understanding schematics, drawings, blueprints, and wiring diagrams

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 civilian firms that design, build, and test weapons for the military.
Earn While You Learn
