The Millwright Trade
Every installation project is unique, every maintenance job an individual challenge. SSMRC millwrights and contractors approach their work with unmatched safety, reliability, respect, craftsmanship, professionalism, and leadership. These are the tenets that define SSMRC millwrights.
Industry Connections & Partnerships
Led by a national labor-management committee, the SSMRC’s millwright program actively seeks out industry partnerships, with a goal of providing to customers exactly what is needed on the jobsite. These partnerships include Siemens Generation Service (SGS), General Electric (APM), Exelon, FlowServe, and others, all of which assist in our training efforts by providing equipment, expert consultation, guest instructors, and more.
We build partnerships based on respect and trust. We provide skilled, responsible millwrights to meet the challenges of any project.
Training Standards & Qualifications
To meet the standards of the NMAP/Millwright Qualification Program, a member must meet one of the following requirements:
- Complete a millwright apprenticeship program recognized by the United Brotherhood of Carpenters.
- Document 10,000 hours of millwright work experience prior to January 1, 1996. Any upgrade training classes approved by the local joint apprenticeship committee and successfully completed by the journeyperson may be included in the 10,000-hour requirement.
- Complete written and manipulative equivalency testing with a score of 80 percent or higher in the five categories: mathematics; print reading; machinery installation; systems components and repair; general knowledge and tools; and alignment.
- If a person holding a qualified millwright card is released from three jobs because of skill deficiencies, that member is required to retake all NMAP/Millwright Qualification tests. After the testing is complete, the member will receive the necessary retraining.
