The 373rd Training Squadron, Detachment 1, located on McGuire, is a component of the Air Education and Training Command, and is responsible for aircraft maintenance training. The training detachment has been at McGuire since the mid-1950s in support of various ­aircraft. From then until now, its mission has changed many times to correspond with changes in the wing’s weapon systems.

The detachment’s instructors are responsible for teaching 32 KC-10 Extender and 13 C-17 Globemaster III aircraft maintenance courses as well as ground equipment repair. Courses range from initial skills qualification to advanced troubleshooting techniques. While most of the detachment’s students are from “Team McGuire,” training is also provided to both the Air Force Reserve and Air National Guard units worldwide in support of Air Mobility Command’s rapid global reach mission.
