Qualified Millwright

  1. 1. QUALIFIED MILLWRIGHT CARDIn order to receive a Qualified Millwright Card you must meet one of the following fourrequirements: 1. Grandfathered: You must provide documentation of 10,000 hours of millwright field experience prior to January 1, 1996. If you meet this criterion, you will be grandfathered into the program and will not be required to take the UBC qualified millwright test (QMT). 2. Apprentices: You must have completed a Millwright Apprentice Training Program (currently, the STL and SEMO Programs do not meet this requirement because they are not exclusive millwright apprentice programs. However, the SoIL Program does.) Note: STL and SEMO Carpenter Apprentice graduates will be eligible to take the QMT if they have completed the required courses (noted below…indicated by *). 3. 5000 Hours: Complete the QMT (written and manipulative sections) with a score of 80 percent or above. (In order to take the QMT you must provide documentation of a minimum of 5,000 exclusive millwright hours since January 1, 1996 and successfully complete the QMT Review course.) 4. 2000 Hours: You must provide documentation of a minimum of 2,000 exclusive millwright hours (since January 1, 1996) and have taken a total of 128 hours of millwright-related upgrade training courses. The list of courses, hours of credit, and exceptions are provided below. (If you meet these requirements and successfully complete the QMT Review course you will be allowed to take the QMT. You must pass the QMT with a score of 80% or better.) QUALIFIED MILLWRIGHT TEST (QMT)The UBC QMT consists of two parts: written and manipulative (8 hours TOTAL).The written portion has six sections—40 questions in each section—that cover thefollowing related-millwright skills, for a total of 240 questions (4-hour time limit): 1. Mathematics 2. Blueprint reading/Layout 3. Machinery installation, repair and maintenance (Including rigging) 4. Systems Components (Compressors, pumps, turbines, rotating equipment and conveyor systems of all types.) 5. General Millwright Knowledge (Terminology, general procedures, fasteners and materials) 6. Tools (Hand, power and precision)The manipulative portion of the QMT consists of two sections that cover the followingstandard millwright skills (4-hour time limit): 1. Coupling Alignment 2. Layout with bearing and shaft assembly 1
