We Build Professional Millwrights
Who are we?
Millwrights are known throughout the United States as being the best trained and most well prepared for any project. The Millwright Training Center's goals are to provide quality training that includes both classroom and hands-on shop lessons which ensure that our members are the best in their craft. Our state-of-the-art training facility gives apprentices access to modern equipment and tools upon which to hone their craft.
What is a Millwright?
Millwrights are construction professionals who work primarily with machinery and equipment requiring precision. Millwrights install, maintain, diagnose, and repair equipment such as compressors, pumps, conveyors, gas and steam turbines, monorails, and extruders.
“Precision” is the standard work product of professional Millwrights. These members consistently participate in training and skill-enhancement classes to become experts in the use of tools and instruments that they must master. A keen eye for the perfect fit is a primary asset for millwrights, having to sometimes work with specifications requiring tolerances to a thousandth of an inch.
Millwrights can be found performing mission-critical work at coal, gas, nuclear, and alternative-energy power plants. Their skills are also vital in industries as diverse as automotive, aerospace, food processing, lumber, pulp and paper, material handling, mining, petrochemical, steel and alloys, pharmaceuticals, and mechanical construction.
How can I Prepare?
To prepare for the Millwright apprenticeship program, individuals should take classes in basic and advanced mathematics, drafting and mechanical drawing, metal or industrial shop, and any construction courses which familiarize you with construction technology. These classes will help you develop the dexterity and practical thinking skills you will need as an apprentice Millwright.
