Elevator and Escalator Maintenance Training Guidelines Standards

Rating: 54321 (5.0/5) | Tags: guidelinesaptaapprenticeship


​As of 2007, 25 states have adopted formal elevator and escalator maintenance licensing requirements. The transit agency response correspondingly reflects this regulatory environment, as each agency attempts to develop training specific to their regulating authority. The result is largely an unfunded mandate with which no single transit company can afford to comply. This brief description of the dilemma faced by the industry illustrates the urgent need for national guidelines and related training programs.


​The curriculum, courseware and training guidelines adopted by the group and contained in this Recommended Practice are designed to meet or exceed the licensing requirements of jurisdictions, which currently or in the future, may legislate professional licensure or certification for elevator and escalator technicians. The apprenticeship program will ultimately be registered by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Apprenticeship.
