The shipyard is equipped with many cranes, machinery and vehicles that require maintenance. Millwright apprentices install, maintain, repair, and overhaul shipyard machinery. Apprentices learn to operate a number of machine tools including lathes, milling machines and drill presses in manufacturing parts used to repair production equipment. They also inspect and maintain cranes throughout the entire shipyard and repair machinery in the various waterfront shops. Apprentices will work in an automotive shop to repair company vehicles and other transportation equipment.
