Millwright (Industrial Mechanic) Enhanced Foundation

Millwright Foundation Level 1 (Enhanced)

Program Description

Millwrights dismantle, move, install, change layout, set-up, repair, overhaul and maintain all machinery and heavy mechanical equipment, including power shafting, pulleys, conveyors and hoists. They work from plans and blueprints and install equipment using hand tools, power tools, and hoisting equipment. Millwrights use grinders and lathes to make customized parts and construct machinery foundations.

Millwright is designated as Industrial Mechanic (Millwright) under the Inter-Provincial Red Seal program.

If a student is just starting training, or has been unable to secure employment in industry as a Millwright, enrolling in a Foundation Trades Training program is a viable option prior to entering into an Apprenticeship.

he Enhanced Millwright Foundation Program consists of the harmonized Apprenticeship Level 1, a work practicum placement and Apprenticeship Level 2 technical training in addition to practical and essential skills related to the Industrial Mechanic (Millwright) apprenticeship program.

Career Prospects

Excellent opportunities exist in the local and regional industry for Mill­wrights, including repair shops, plants, construction sites, mines, logging operations, ski hills and most production and manufacturing facilities.
