  • Warrant Officer MOS and Feeders

    I am currently looking at enlisting in the National Guard. I am prior service, but it was 14 to 15 years ago and it was Air Force. I am looking into going in as a warrant officer. I have the required 3 years experience in a feeder MOS (3E031 - Electrical system specialist while in the Air Force). On the other hand I have been working on stationary turbine generators for the last 13 - 14 years as a generator specialist and am probably more specialized in the realm of the 91D - Power - Generation Equipment Repair MOS due to civilian experience.

    How do I determine which of the two warrant Officer MOS's (120A or 919A) is the best fit and give me the best chance at making it in as a warrant officer?

    I know the 91D field is offering signing bonuses and I would love to go through the enlisted school, so I have knowledge of the actual equipment I will be working on, but with my previous MOS being well documented I wonder if it would be easier to get in with.

    Silver Fox, its great to have a back-up plan but my knowledge for submitting a packet for the military (my last experience was submitting a TWI packet) is to apply for all which you are qualified and let proponent or HRC make the determination. They will assist you and guide you if you are a fit or if you are lacking something.

    The information portal should contain point of contacts. Try calling them and see what they say.

      Silver Fox, I forgot to mention that you should submit all your EPRs in order to assist with the detemination of eligibility.

        Not sure of all the acronyms since it has been a while since I had to use them, but I see a recruiter tomorrow. We had to delay our meeting since he was not sure of the whole Warrant Officer proceedure. In some ways just reading online it looks like it may be easier to go in OCS since I already have over 114 college credits with my Associates degree and go for my BS in night classes. I just hate throwing 13 to 14 years of specialized civilian experience out the window.

        Thanks for the help though.

          Before you sign anything, speak with your OSM or WOSM (your recruiter can put you in touch). That individual will give you the best guidance for your career path.
