 What to Expect

The National Training Center (NTC) is located in the center of California’s Mojave Desert. It is one of the United States Army’s premier training areas which dates back as a military reservation/installation to its establishment in 1940. The NTC’s goal is to provide a tough, realistic joint and combined arms training with the focus at the battalion task force and brigade levels. As a weather team, it provides a realistic environment both climatologically and geographically comparable to those found in current real-world contingencies. The scenarios developed at the NTC provides for realistic circumstances and missions to be accomplished and presents an excellent opportunity for motivated weather teams to test capabilities, establish strong ties with their attached Army units, and train to exploit the weather on the battlefield. 

When a weather team deploys to NTC, their mission is to support their customer while making themselves better weather technicians. The weather team is expected to pre-coordinate their customer's support before departing for NTC.  Once the weather team arrives, the combat trainer's will visit the deployed weather team often to offer coaching and mentorship. The combat trainer's will share past experiences along with the greatest and latest TTPs. The combat trainer's will fix any safety of mission items on the spot and will provide the deployed weather team with an After Actions Report at the end of the deployment.
