Build a career working with machinery

Sheridan's 24-week program provides FREE hands-on training and assistance with paid on-the-job experience. This program is designed as a transition step towards an apprenticeship in the trades.

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 assistance with on­-the-job experience that will equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to secure an apprenticeship position as a millwright.

  • Industrial Mechanical Millwright fundamentals
  • Welding and fabricating
  • Rigging and hoisting
