Oil & Gas Industry

UBC millwrights are solving the skilled labour shortage by attracting and retaining a highly skilled workforce.

UBC Millwrights Meet the Call for Our Oil & Gas Needs

Oil and gas production is in high demand, including millwrights needed to install and maintain mechanical operations. We have hundreds of highly skilled, credentialed, professional UBC millwrights ready to deploy. Each learned from the same standardized training curriculum, which means that new hires are just as skilled as experienced local millwrights.

The Right Training to Get the Job Done

Our intensive training creates leaders who promote a productive and safe worksite with their work ethic and positive attitude. UBC millwrights are trained, tested, and credentialed for work in oil refineries, chemical plants, gas pipelines, natural gas processing units and more.

We have honed our technical skills for exploration, development, drilling, production, and decommissioning projects — and are prepared to expertly install, construct, repair and maintain multimillion-dollar production and refinery equipment, such as stationary and industrial engines, compressors, and pumps.

Our reputation for excellence includes rigging and signaling, welding, alignment, and fabrications.

By working with UBC Millwright Regional Council – Canada, you can rely on our programs. There’s no need to create your own training program, vet the qualifications of tech school programs or wait for other training programs to produce graduates. You won’t need to spend resources for out-of-province or out-of-region workers, or fund a menu of perks and incentives to keep existing employees. And you will never wonder whether your crew will be productive and safe.

UBC Millwrights - On Time Every Time

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, UBC Millwrights 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.
