Layout Workers

Advancement Prospects

Several advancement opportunities are open to layout workers with the proper qualifications. If they can deal well with people and possess good judgment and planning skills, they may progress to a supervisory position, such as shop supervisor. Another possibility for the worker who has attended a technical school is to move into experimental and design work, process planning, or estimating. In addition, layout workers can easily transfer to other work, such as machine programming, which is becoming more important as machines become more technically sophisticated. Finally, some layout workers open machine shops of their own.
