Technician Training

The Sustainment Training Center (STC) currently hosts sixteen maintenance training opportunities for Army National Guard Technicians. These courses involve M1 Abrams Family of Vehicles (FOV), M2 FOV the 1500GPH Tactical Water Purification System (TWPS), maintenance of the M88A1/M88A2 Recovery Vehicle, KALMAR 240V2 Rough Terrain Container Handler (RTCH) and four Wheel Vehicle courses: MSD V2/V3 Diagnostics, Electrical Troubleshooting & Diagnostic, Hydraulic/Fuel Systems and Brake/Axle. Also included is a Phase 1 Calibration Course for your newly hired/assigned Electronic Measurement Equipment Mechanic personnel. Technicians that work at various State Maintenance Sites are eligible to attend these courses at the STC on Camp Dodge. These are excellent courses for the Technician that has little or no experience working on the above pieces of equipment, or a technician that just needs some refresher training. None of the above courses are MOS qualifying or producing.

All Technician instruction includes Repair Procedures using the approved Army Technical Manuals as a guide. All courses are taught by knowledgeable and qualified Contractor Instructors. The STC is located on Camp Dodge, which provides the latest in modern maintenance shop operations and Soldier/Technician comfort annuities. Students will stay in modern air conditioned facilities, complete with High Speed Internet service. Technicians do have the option of staying off post, at the expense of the State the Technician is from. A typical Student day is from 0730-1630 hours with an hour lunch break. Technician students need to bring along clothing that is suitable for both inside and outside instruction in all types of weather conditions.

Enrollment into these courses is through the ATRRS system, or by contacting the STC Technician Maintenance Training Operations office at the numbers below. Technician supervisors should coordinate through their State School Manager in the Human Resource Office (HRO). Contact Mr. Mark Rushing for further details at 515-727-3579, or DSN 431-3579.
