What will you learn to do? As a Fabrication Trainee, you will be asked to learn from senior-level fabricators and cultivate your fabrication skills. You will learn how to operate shop equipment, such as jib crane, rolls, sheer, handheld plasma cutter, cutting torch, tubing bender and more!

What are the duties and responsibilities of a trainee? You will weld and fabricate various materials as outlined in the engineering specifications and drawings:

  • Understand basic AWS weld symbols
  • Ability to read a tape measure to 1/32"
  • Able to read basic weld prints
  • Understand how to adjust welding machine settings
  • Ability to sand/grind to GK Machine's grade B finish
  • Fabricate using jigs and fixtures

Is welding experience a requirement for OTJ training? It's great if you know how to weld but it's not required! We'll teach you how to weld, assemble and powdercoat steel materials.

Will I be offered a job at the end of the OTJ training? No permanent job is automatically offered, but you are welcome to apply for any open positions with GK Machine after your training is complete.
