Millwrights (also known as Industrial Mechanics) install, maintain and repair industrial equipment, such as compressors, pumps and turbines. While on the job, you may perform some of the following duties: reading diagrams, schematic drawings, and service manuals to determine work procedures; operate rigging equipment; install, test and adjust equipment; perform maintenance, and repair or replace defective parts when necessary; service and repair hydraulic, pneumatic, and mechanical systems; and perform metal fabrication. As a Millwright, you can work in the oil and gas industry, the manufacturing sector, or anywhere industrial equipment is being used. Experienced Millwrights may advance to positions such as supervisors or project managers, while some start their own businesses.

Apprentices in the program qualify for both the apprenticeship incentive grants and the apprenticeship completion grant.
