The Job Role

An MT1 operates precision machinery, systems and processes. Typical skills expected in these positions usually includes: CAD skills, computer controlled machine programming, precision measurement, process and machine trouble-shooting, problem-solving, machine maintenance, production/fabrication and proficient use of diagnostics and statistical tools. These positions generally describe someone who has enough broad-based knowledge about a multi-step process to successfully trouble-shoot and solve problems beyond the scope of typical "machine operators." These positions may also require someone charged with developing/refining prototype fabrication methods for new products. (MT1, Manufacturing Skills Institute)
