Advancement Prospects

Skilled heat treaters have many opportunities for advancement. As they become more experienced, they may move into supervisory positions such as foreman or plant manager. In addition to technical expertise, workers who want to advance need to have good communications skills, leadership ability, and the ability to work as part of a team. Most heat treaters who move into higher positions take classes beyond the high school level. Technical classes in metallurgy are required for positions involved in metallurgy and operations management. Many heat treaters also advance into inspector positions.
