Shipfitters are responsible for assembling and erecting structural steel during ship hull construction. In addition to fitting & tack welding the large sub-assemblies which comprise the hull, shipfitters also build all interior structures such as hatches, doors, and bulkheads. Shipfitter jobs require candidates to be familiar with all phases of the steel construction process in the shipyard. Working with little to no supervision is often required as is knowledgeable use of hand tools such as grinders, saws, and shears.
