Our Excellence Is Grounded in Training and Partnerships

Led by an international Labour-Management Committee, the UBC millwright program seeks out industry partnerships with the goal of delivering exactly what is needed on every job.

Our partners include Siemens Generation Service, General Electric (APM), First Energy, Exelon and others, all of which assist in our training by providing equipment, expert consultation, guest instructors, and more.

For example, when a demand for turbine experts surfaced, we worked with industry leaders Atlantic Plant Maintenance and Siemens to develop gas and steam turbine qualification programs to train our Millwrights in the newest power plant technology.

The UBC’s International Training Center in Las Vegas now hosts a turbine training facility with equipment from these partners for hands-on instruction. UBC Millwright training also includes technical categories such as rigging and signaling, aerial lift, machinery alignment, optical alignment, forklifts, welding, and bolt tensioning.
