Getting troops and equipment all around the world requires the use of aircraft. This is the reason why it is important to make sure that the air field is able to run properly with all of the different aircraft and service vehicles being directed properly. This avoids accidents and keeps all flights on time. This is why the job of the United States Marine Corps Air traffic Controller is so important.
What You Will Do
The work that you will do will be within the air traffic control tower itself. You will be able to help with making sure that those in the airfield as well as those in remote landing sites will be able to get the direction that they will need in order to stay safe while performing routine and specialty procedures. As you advance in your position, you might also be asked to work as a crew chief in order to provide guidance to the rest of those working in the air traffic control towers and related positions.
Get the Training
In order to get started in this MOS, you will have to first be able to meet the requirements to be cleared with a Secret security clearance so that you can at least get an interim Secret security clearance. You will also go through training beyond normal boot camp training so that you will understand the requirements of the position.
