The Job Role: MT1 Operator
An MT1 operates precision machinery, systems and processes. Typical skills expected in these positions usually include: CAD, 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.
