O que eu aprenderei?

The Industrial Mechanic (Millwright)/Machinist Foundation program prepares you for two different trades:

  • Industrial Mechanic (Millwright)
  • Machinist

Millwrights and machinists maintain, install, and repair stationary industrial equipment in factories, mills, mines, production plants, and recreational facilities. These skilled tradespeople also use lathes, milling machines, grinders, and other equipment to machine parts to accurate dimensions. Because they work in close association with instrument mechanics, pipefitters, welders, electricians, and heavy equipment mechanics, they need to be team players.

This foundation program will provide entry level practical skills and academic knowledge to prepare you to begin the apprenticeship pathway as either a millwright or machinist. You do not need an employer sponsor to participate. In fact, one of the main reasons to complete a foundation program is to gain experience and familiarity with the trade, giving you a competitive advantage to finding an employer to hire you as their apprentice.


Millwrights and machinists play an essential role in many industries. They are responsible for keeping stationary industrial machinery and mechanical equipment in good repair. Industries in which industrial mechanics and machinists are critical include:

  • Manufacturing & Packaging (everything from vehicles to plastics to food)
  • Natural Resources (oil & gas, mines, pulp, plywood, sawmills, etc.)
  • Recreation (ski hills, amusement parks)
  • Transportation (airports, terminals)

Millwrights and machinists might work indoors in a shop or plant, outdoors where equipment is being used, or a combination of both.
