The Army National Guard uses precision instruments to determine distance, pressure, altitude, and underwater depth. These instruments must be kept in top condition. And it's the Test, Measurement, and Diagnostic Equipment (TMDE) Maintenance Support Specialist who makes sure that happens.
As a member of the National Guard precision instruments maintenance team, the TMDE Maintenance Support Specialist calibrates and repairs test, measurement, and diagnostic equipment, such as weapon-aiming devices, weather instruments, gyrocompasses, radiation-detecting equipment, and instruments used in aircraft.
Use your TMDE Maintenance Support Specialist experience as a springboard to advance your civilian career. The skills you learn in this specialty prepare you for a career with civilian firms that manufacture or use precision instruments. You'll be able to pursue a career as an instrument mechanic or a calibration specialist at civilian companies, such as manufacturing firms, airlines, machinery repair shops, or maintenance shops.
Earn while you learn 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.
