This page provides essential information, forms and reference materials for Federal Technicians.
|National Guard Technicians of the Army and Air National Guard represent an essential part of the federal workforce. Federal employees provide the day-to-day continuity in the operation and training of Army and Air National Guard unit members.
The National Guard workforce is comprised of military technicians, competitive technicians and Active Guard Reserve (AGRs). Military technicians are required to maintain military membership in the National Guard in order to retain employment. Military technicians perform full-time work in their units, perform military training and duty in their units and are available to enter active military service at any time their unit is called to active duty.
The state Adjutant Generals, subject to federal regulations, are the designated employer of technicians. The Department of Defense, the Army and the Air Force, and the National Guard Bureau all oversee dual-status technicians.
