A minimum ASVAB score of Mechanical Maintenance (MM): 105 is required for the job just like other Military Occupational Specialties (MOS) in USMC Field 60.

Military Duties Translated:

Marines that serve OccFld 60 perform a lot of maintenance and mechanics specific to the military branch. However, there are civilian job equivalents to military mechanics and aircraft maintenance technicians. In fact, some are very high paying and could land you a job working for a commercial airline or airport. There are some former USMC Field 60 that choose to pursue a completely different line of work after leaving the military. USMC Field 60 military jobs are very technical and “left brain” oriented so jobs that have to do with science and logistics are natural fits.

Some civilian jobs best suited to this type of military experience:
