Technician Training

Test Measurement Diagnostic Test Equipment (TMDE) and Calibration Technician Course

<< Back


The Sustainment Training Center (STC) can train your newly assigned ARNG Full-Time Calibration Technicians in conducting calibration tasks on items listed in TB 43-180 requiring physical calibration. STC has developed an 80 hour Training Package with the core fundamental teaching points focused towards receiving instruction on the theory of metrology as it applies to torque wrenches, linear measurement devices, pressure measurement devices, small arms gages, and thermometers. Instruction focuses on understanding the theory of standards and verifying items under calibration using the appropriate standards within physical calibration systems. Students use Test Measurement and Diagnostic Equipment (TMDE) to perform calibration on representative items requiring physical calibration.

This course IS NOT in ATRRS. Class size is capped at three (3) students. Hard Copy Enrollment Forms are used for nominating your newly hired/assigned TMDE/Calibration personnel for attendance at the Phase 1 TMDE/Calibration Course here at the Sustainment Training Center, Camp Dodge, Iowa. Enrollment forms are date/stamped as they are received. 30-45 days from class start date, a staff panel will choose three primary candidates for attendance while choosing two alternates.


Must be an ARNG Full Time Technician working in a State Maintenance Equipment Site in a TMDE/Calibration assigned position.
