Significant Information: Industrial Machinery Installation, Repair, and Maintenance Workers, Except Millwrights




  • Highly skilled mechanics usually learn their trade through a 4-year apprenticeship program, while lower skilled maintenance workers receive short-term on-the-job training.
  • Employment is projected to grow more slowly than average, but applicants with broad skills in machine repair and maintenance should have favorable job prospects.
  • Unlike many other manufacturing occupations, these workers usually are not affected by seasonal changes in production.
