Alberta Millwrights Training Center, Edmonton AB

We cannot be the world’s safest, most precise and highly productive millwrights without a world-class training division staffed by highly-experienced people and equipped with a stunning array of tools and equipment.

There isn’t a union that invests more in training than the Millwrights 1460. Here in Alberta, our Edmonton provincial training centre is a perfect complement to the International Carpenters Training Centre in Las Vegas.

We’re intensely proud of the training programs we’ve developed, the trainers we’ve attracted, and the equipment that we’ve gathered to enable us to deliver real-life learning experience to our students.

More than half of our members take one or more courses each year, proof of our wholesale belief in the value of training in making them more employable, and our employers more consistently satisfied with the high quality of our work.

Millwright training courses are offered all year and are free to our members.
