Ready to move forward? Here's what you can expect.

Getting started is easier than you think. Below is the path you can expect to take when you're ready to join the Guard.

 

GET STARTED

Fill out the application form to let a Guard representative know you’re interested in learning more. No obligation, no guarantees.

 

TEST

Once you and your Guard representative agree that you’re a good fit for the Guard, your next step is to take the ASVAB test. Take a practice ASVAB test on Facebook.

 

ENLIST

At this point, you will lock in your Basic Combat Training ship date, confirm your Guard job and pay, and take your Oath of Enlistment.

 

PREPARE 

Until you ship, you’ll attend RSP one weekend a month to learn Guard rules and structure, and start fitness and classroom training.

 

SHIP

It’s time for Basic Combat Training. In 10 weeks, you’ll be stronger than you’ve ever been, and ready to be part of the team that protects America.
