For UBC millwrights, training is one piece of the puzzle. The other is qualification. Our qualification requirements ensure every UBC millwright is equipped for success in the field and on the job.
Apprenticeship is the beginning of the qualification process. Complete a construction millwright apprenticeship program regulated in Ontario with the Millwright Regional Council of Ontario. Upon completion of apprenticeship, qualified individuals obtain a Certificate of Qualification, which confirms its holder has the skills, knowledge and experience that meet industry standards.
An apprenticeship involves the completion of 8,000 hours via practical training provided on-the-job by a highly skilled UBC Millwright and includes three levels of theoretical in class training over 24 weeks, which includes but is not limited to; instruction in workshop practice, workshop technology, machine technology, rigging & hoisting, welding & fabrication, electrical & electronic controls, drawings & schematics.
Upon completion of apprenticeship, UBC Millwrights receive a Certificate of Apprenticeship (CoA) from the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities followed by a Certificate of Qualification (CoQ) upon passing the construction millwright certification exam to become certified, licensed and registered as a millwright journeyman.
