MILLWRIGHT


Since its humble beginnings in the construction of wood mills, the Millwright trade has expanded to include work in metal and machinery of ever-increasing technology and precision. Millwrights install, align, and troubleshoot machinery in factories, power plants (particularly the precision machinery required in nuclear power plants), and other industrial sites. They install conveyor systems, connect machinery to power supplies and piping, direct hoisting and setting of machines, and adjust the moving and stationary parts of machines to certain specifications. Millwrights must be extremely skilled at mathematics and interpreting blueprints and specifications to set machines at perfect measurements, sometimes working with clearances no bigger than thousandths of an inch.

For this program, NCCER offers a five-level curriculum, which covers topics such as Millwright Hand Tools and Fabricating Shims.
