Facilities Maintenance Courseware

The Transportation Learning Center (the Center) organizes multiple national training consortia to develop standards-based national training courseware for frontline occupations in public transportation organizations.

The facilities maintenance courseware section currently contains Elevator/Escalator Training Consortium Materials only. Materials are based on the national elevator/escalator maintenance training standards published by the American Public Transportation Association (APTA).  Courseware Development Teams (CDTs), comprised of subject matter experts and instructional designers, hold regular webinars, site visits and in-person meetings to produce these materials.

Please use the navigation on the right to locate courseware of your interest. Access to full downloads and technical assistance for training and apprenticeship implementation is provided to members in good standing. Please contact our staff members listed under each consortium for information on membership.
