Final APTA Approved Transit Elevator Escalator Standards

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


​This document contains standards for a fully accredited Elevator/Escalator Apprenticeship Program.


​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.
