Industrial Mechanic (Millwright)/Machinist Foundation-Level

Industrial mechanics (millwrights) install and repair machinery and heavy mechanical equipment in a variety of work sites including production facilities, lumber mills, ski hills, mines, and more. Industrial mechanics have a broad skill set that allows them to perform a variety of duties from the analytical – reading diagrams and schematic drawings, performing alignments and precision work – to the physically intensive – operating rigging and heavy equipment, fabrication and tack welding, and construction.

If you like to know how things work, have a desire to prevent breakdown and downtime, and to fix things better than new, this may be a good career path for you.

The demand is great. Wherever there’s machinery at work, you’ll find millwrights in sawmills, planer mills, pulp mills, mines, hospitals, factories and more.
