What areas of knowledgedoes the millwright test cover

greenspun.com : LUSENET : craft discussion group : One Thread

I have contacted the union local about taking the journeyman test.The lady I talked to there ( the only person that works in the office) said she did not know exactly what the test covered other than math blue printreading, rigging, and safety. Could anyone please let me know what to expect? Could anyone point me toward a good website on the subject I have over 23 years experience in industrial mechanics 20years as a maintenance supervisor. I have ordered a book from the local but would appreciate any pointers on what I should really brush up my skills on. Thank you in advance for any help you could give me.

Since there are regional variations and procedures I cannot predict exactly what will be on your test. Call that office back and ask the receptionist to leave the agent a message to call you back. Be patient, most millwright agents already have a large task list and must prioritize to get it all done. Broadly, areas test on general millwright knowledge. I do not know of any web-site that addresses your specific problem.

Hi Rob..!!

If you would liketo e-mail me back I would be nmore then happy to answer any of your questions. I know a great deal of what kind of questions that are asked on the Exam in general because I wrote the Exam twice and got 68% on both Exams. The only problem I had is that the first exam I wrote was a 120 question exam and like I said I scored 82 and I needed 84 that sucked but the 2nd time I wrote the exam it was a 135 question exam and I scored 92 and to pass I needed 94 so that really made my BLOOD BOIL. I will be writing the Exam for the 3rd time tomorrow and this time I better pass..I just hope they never changed the Exam again...!!!

My BF has written the exam 3 times and has compiled a list of as many questions as he can remember. We are trying to find out if there are any exam preparation courses. Does anyone know anything about this Idustrain College???
