    That was my brothers MOS in the Marines. He had to sign his contract for 5 years because the school is almost a year long. He went to Pensacola, FL. I'm pretty sure he learned how to take apart the control panals in a helicoptor and put it back together. After school he ended up getting into HAZMAT but stayed with the same MOS so I think its a broad term for a lot of jobs. He was stationed in Mirmar, CA and did two tours at Al Asad Airbase in Iraq.

    My husband is a 15N Avionics Mechanic and his AIT schooling was 6 months.

    He might be a Avionics Electrician in which case he probably works on the electric end of things when it comes to fixing helicopters or planes.

    What branch?
    I was an AE in the Navy and we call them rates. I never went to school, though. I did what is called "striking" for a rate. The way it's done is you do the books the school requires on your own and complete them before the next advancement testing cycle which is every March and Sept. You need to at least pass but not advance to earn the rate which I did known as PNA (pass but not advanced) which means I didn't advance to E4 from E3 but I got my AE title so I was an AEAN (Aviation Electrician's Mate Airman).

    My husband is a Marine and in Avi. After school in Pensacola he had to go to school for the specific aircraft he was working on. Then he went into the squadron. There are a lot of different jobs even in the shops and different aircraft that he can work on. For example, working with the jets is a lot different then working with helos as some of those require flight time. What aircraft they work on, and their particular MOS is determined by their scores at school in P'cola I believe.
