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 Transportation Management Coordinator consists of 10 weeks of Basic Training, where you'll learn basic Soldiering skills, and six weeks of Advanced Individual Training (AIT). Part of this time is spent in the classroom and part in the field.
