137th Special Operations Civil Engineering Squadron completes deployment readiness training | DVIDS News

Eighty-four members of the 137th Special Operations Civil Engineering Squadron (137th SOCES) participated in deployment readiness training at March Air Reserve Base in Riverside County, California, June 25-30, 2018.

This training is conducted every three years at a regional training site so that members can train on equipment they will likely operate during a deployment but might not have on their home base.

All aspects of the civil engineering career fields received specialty training, including: water fuels systems maintenance; power production; emergency management; engineering assistants; pavement and equipment; operations management; heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration; structural specialists; environmental engineering; command and control; electricians; and fire and emergency services.

These components of civil engineering are vital to the creation and continued operation of a deployed location, so it was important that the squadron trained on that unique equipment without interruption.
