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.

What will I learn in this program?

  • Industrial Mechanical Millwright fundamentals
  • Precision machining and tooling
  • Welding and fabricating
  • Rigging and hoisting
  • Electrical and electronic controls
  • Drawings and schematics
  • WHMIS and workplace safety training
  • And more


Sheridan’s Industrial Mechanic Millwright Pre-Apprentice Training Program is sponsored by the Government of Ontario (Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development). This program is part of Employment Ontario, the province's integrated training and employment network. Training is provided at no cost to the student.
