Age Requirements: Must be between the ages of 17 and 35
Lay the foundation for a successful future as a Concrete and Asphalt Equipment Crewmember in the Army National Guard.
You will help complete any number of construction projects that require concrete or asphalt: airfields, roads, building foundations, and more. You may also be responsible for producing concrete with a concrete mobile mixer; assisting in the building and operation of an asphalt producing plant; operating asphalt distributors, aggregate spreaders, and asphalt kettles; assisting in the operation of asphalt paving and surfacing equipment; and assisting in combat engineer missions.
Some of the Skills You’ll Learn
• Maintenance and repair of equipment
• Interest in operating heavy construction equipment
• Preference for working outdoors
• Interest in working with your hands
Through your training, you will develop the skills and experience to enjoy a civilian career with construction enterprises like building contractors, state highway agencies, rock quarries, well drillers, or construction firms.
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.
Job training for a Concrete and Asphalt Equipment Operator consists of 10 weeks of Basic Training, where you'll learn basic Soldiering skills, and six weeks of Advanced Individual Training, including practice operating construction equipment. Part of this time is spent in the classroom and part in the field.
