Forge Shop Workers

Advancement Prospects

Forge shop production workers who start out as helpers can advance to more skilled jobs after several years of training and experience. A helper may become, for example, a hammersmith, who relies on accumulated knowledge of forging and directs a crew of workers. Skilled workers, with experience in many different areas of forge shop operations, can advance to supervisory positions if they show leadership and management ability. Completion of college courses in engineering, metallurgy, electronics, and computers can also be helpful for those hoping to advance.
