Your Learning Experience
As a student, you’ll learn how to examine and diagnose problems associated with mechanical or automated equipment. To master a trade you need specific training, and that’s why Fanshawe’s classrooms and labs will give you an understanding of new technology that will affect your day-to-day tasks. You’ll work with hand and power tools as well as welding equipment and you may be required to operate hoisting and lifting devices as well.
After you complete the program and required on-the-job hours, you’ll be more than prepared to write your trade exam and achieve journeyperson status on your way to starting a career as an industrial millwright. If you're ready to work and want to combine training with earning power, consider an apprenticeship where you mix workplace-based training under the direction of experienced workers with shorter lengths of classroom or online training.
This is an apprenticeship program. You cannot apply to this program through ontariocolleges.ca. Applicants need a sponsor/employer. Your sponsor/employer must register you with:
