Job Description

Expand your construction skills and join the Army National Guard as a Carpentry and Masonry Specialist. Youll gain extensive, hands-on experience in the construction and maintenance of rigging devices, building layout, framing, and fabrication, and assisting in combat engineer missions.

Through the use of your basic carpentry and masonry skills, your responsibilities will involve general heavy carpentry, structural steel, and masonry duties that include the fabrication, erection, maintenance, and repair of rigging devices, trusses, and other structural assemblies.

Job Duties
Assist in the performance of combat engineer missions

Some of the Skills Youll Learn
Basics in concrete technology, materials, proportioning, and control tests
Proper use of finishing tools
Edging, jointing, curing, and protection
Basics in structure foaming, roofing, and flooring

Helpful Skills
Enjoy doing physical work
Interest in science and math
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 in commercial and residential construction as a mason, carpenter, cement mason, concrete finisher, drywall installer, or ceiling tile installer. If you achieve an advanced level, you could hold positions such as foreman, shift manager, field supervisor, or inspector.

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.

After 10 weeks of Basic Training, where you will learn fundamental Soldiering skills, you will attend nine weeks of Advanced Individual Training (AIT), which includes a combination of hands-on and classroom training.
