A QUOTE FROM THE SUPERVISOR
“Drew Bowser is a true testament to what the Millwright training program develops and a Journeyman Millwright represents. He has gown through his young career to be a leader on the job that has propelled him to Foreman on high profile plant outages.” -Troy Schlapfer.
A millwright must be prepared to work in any condition: inside or out, clean or dirty, wet or dry, hot or cold. It’s a physical job. Lifting, pushing, pulling, and bending are common. You are trained on how to perform these tasks safely before ever entering on a job site. All that is needed is a positive attitude, High School diploma or GED and you are on your way to getting the pay, benefits and respect you deserve.
Physical skills are important but thinking and communication skills are equally important. You can get a head start on becoming a millwright by taking classes in mathematics, drafting, mechanical drawing, CAD, and by enrolling in industrial shop.
