Program Overview

This program delivers the technical and practical training required for Level 2 of the 4-year Industrial Mechanic (Millwright) Apprenticeship program. Apprentices will develop the skills, knowledge and training related to using fits and tolerances and installing and maintaining lubricating systems and seals and bearings. Using safe rigging practices, securing equipment, and leveling and alignment procedures are also covered along with theoretical content related to hydraulics and interpreting hydraulic schematics and components. The program also develops skills for the following welding processes: shielded metal arc welding (SMAW), gas metal arc welding (GMAW) and gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW). Safe work practices related to the industrial mechanic trade are reinforced throughout the program.
