After completing my seven weeks on manual turning and achieving a distinction, I have this week moved on to manual milling where I will spend the next seven weeks.
So far, I have learned how to face off a steel block, similar to that which would be provided in industry in preparation for beginning the job, as well as how to prepare (set up) the machine for work. For example, clocking the ram and head, and running safety procedures such as testing the guards and emergency stop buttons.
I have also been in the classroom this week, where we have three separate classes: health and safety, maths, and engineering communication. In the communication class, we are developing our presentation skills. For our first assignment, we have to prepare and then present on our places of work. Through my apprenticeship program, I am an AMRC employee so the Training Centre will be the topic of my presentation. I will share highlights of my presentation along with more updates in my next post.
