The Alaska National Guard is a dual-status agency with both a federal and state mission, and therefore offers a variety of full-time employment opportunities with the state government and the federal government. Positions are available for both current military members as well as for civilians depending on the position type.
National Guard Technicians are employees of The Adjutant General for Alaska as authorized by the National Guard Technician Act of 1968 (32 USC 709, Public Law 90-486). The primary mission of a technician is to provide day-to-day continuity in the operation and training of Army and Air National Guard units before, during, and after mobilization.
National Guard technician positions, or Title 32 dual status technician positions, are employees of the Department of the Army or Department of the Air Force. Title 32 technicians are required to maintain military membership in the National Guard, observe customs and courtesies, and maintain a military grade and unit of assignment compatible with their technician position. To see Title 32 positions available within the Alaska National Guard, please visit USAJOBS.
Civilian technician jobs, or Title 5 full-time positions, are also available for personnel who may or may not have military affiliation. Title 5 technicians are a small but important segment of the workforce that is not required to maintain a military affiliation as a condition of employment.
