    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)

    NOTE: To review a full list of production occupations in modern manufacturing requiring MT1 industry-wide technical skills, please refer to the Bereau of Labor Statistics at: http://www.bls.gov/oes/current/oes510000.htm
