M1A1 ED/SA Abrams Hull/Turret Basic Technician Training

<< Back


The Sustainment Training Center (STC) can train your ARNG Full-Time Maintenance Technicians & M-Day Traditional Soldiers in the Inspection and Repair of the M1A1 ED/SA Abrams Hull & Turret. STC has developed an 80 hour Training Package. The core fundamental teaching point of this course is focused towards proper maintenance procedures of the Hull and Turret. Hands on instruction coupled with classroom instruction is the primary method of instruction. This methodology ensures the student leaves the course with the knowledge to adequately perform correct repairs. The maintenance training is not MOS producing, but is quality instruction that will provide your ARNG Maintenance Technician & Soldier with valuable skills in maintaining the M1A1 ED/SA Abrams Hull & Turret systems.

The course contains instruction on the fundamentals and principles of operations of the M1A1 Turret and Hull. Students receive instruction on the fundamentals and principles of the Fire Control system, Turret Drive system, AGT 1500 Engine, fuel system, fire suppression system, the X1100-3B cross drive transmission and NBC system. Students use maintenance publications, TMDE, and special tools to perform maintenance on the various turret and hull systems.
