As a Quartermaster and Chemical Equipment Repairer in the Army National Guard, you will build the skills you need for a civilian career while directly supporting the maintenance of chemical decontamination equipment and quartermaster machinery. In order to perform these functions, you will train to maintain laundry and bath equipment, pumps, engines, burners, filter units, and water purification units. Your skills will contribute to maintaining special purpose equipment, decontamination and protective filter systems, smoke generator systems, and chemical electrical systems.
