Most states require applicants to have a high school diploma (or be working toward it*), but each state sets its own education requirements. Contact a recruiter to get the latest information about your state's requirements. *The Split Training Option lets you join while you're still in high school. And if you've left high school short of graduat- ing, the Guard's GED Plus program offers a great way to earn your GED and become eligible for enlistment. Your recruiter has more information.


Aptitude:


Before enlisting in the Guard, you'll be required to take the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (or ASVAB). This important aptitude test measures your knowledge in eight areas, including math, science, word knowledge, electronics, mechanics and auto/shop skills. It will help you find the Guard career best suited to your strengths—the one where you’ll fit best and be most likely to succeed.
