FORT PICKETT, Va. — The Virginia National Guard’s 2nd Battalion, 183rd Regiment, Regional Training Institute is looking for experienced 88M motor transport operators to serve as instructors for courses taught at Fort Pickett.

The NCOs of 2nd Battalion, 183rd RTI teach the 88M transition course to reclassify Soldiers from other military occupational specialties.

The four-week course consists of three phases and walks Soldiers through the basics of driving large vehicles, to more advanced concepts like convoy operations, both with and without a trailer, and improvised explosive device recognition and defeat. Soldiers conduct training on the 5-ton Medium Tactical Vehicle, or MTV, and the U.S. Army’s Palletized Load System as well as the M915.
