As a Shower/Laundry and Clothing Repair Specialist in the Army National Guard, you will play an important role in the daily lives of Soldiers by ensuring that they have clean uniforms and clean shower facilities.
It takes a variety of skills and disciplines to ensure that the men and women of the military have clean, wearable clothes, whether at home base or in the field. The Soldiers of this specialty set up mobile shower and laundry facilities in the field, as well as do laundry, repair fabric, and sew buttons.
• Receive bulk, individual, or organizational laundry
• Operate mobile laundry system, shower units, light duty sewing machines, and associated equipment
• Alter sizes, and repair uniforms and zippers
• Operate and maintain sewing, darning, and button machines
Through your training, you will develop the skills and experience to enjoy a civilian career in supervising or managing a commercial laundry for a hotel or resort; as an equipment manager for a sports team; or as a tailor.
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 Shower/Laundry and Clothing Repair Specialist consists of 10 weeks of Basic Training, where you'll learn basic Soldiering skills, and eight weeks of Advanced Individual Training. Part of this time is spent in the classroom and part in the field.
