Build a career working with machinery

Sheridan's 31-week course provides FREE hands-on training and paid on-the-job experience to help you secure an apprenticeship as a millwright.

What is a millwright?

Millwrights assemble, install, maintain and troubleshoot industrial machinery and equipment. They work in industries like resources, nuclear, food processing, forestry, automotive and pharmaceutical. These tasks require an understanding of how machines work and how to repair and maintain them.

How do I become a millwright?

The growth of manufacturing industries and the approaching retirement of large numbers of current journeypersons in the Industrial Mechanic Millwright (IMM) trade have resulted in apprenticeship opportunities, but you need to have experience in order to become an apprentice.

Sheridan's IMM Pre-Apprenticeship Training Program provides you with hands-on training and on­-the-job experience that will equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to secure an apprenticeship position as a millwright.
