ELEVATOR TRAINING ACADEMY meets a specific need that affects all the Elevator companies’ businesses AND individual elevator technicians. We know that the Private Agency Elevator Inspector Test for New York City Elevator Inspector Candidates is mandatory and most mechanics don’t have this license. It’s an incredibly long process that will take many weeks and the D.O.B. mandated that there would be no more grace periods extended passed the January 1, 2012 deadline. This means that the city will enforce the rule that any elevators/escalators inspected MUST have a licensed mechanic present during D.O.B. inspections. This may be a big problem for most businesses that have any significant number of elevators/escalators around the city at any given time.

Section 11-01 of Title 1 of the Official Compilation of the Rules of the City of New York for all qualification requirements, except as modified by Section 101-07(c)(4) of Title 1 of the Official Compilation of the Rules of the City of New York.

Historically, there are trainers that are giving the class at a per head cost. In addition, the cost of publication Code manuals required for this exam cost almost $1000. The kicker is that, large percentages of the people who have taken the classes wait too long between the class and the exam, so that, by the time they take the test which has cost them $350, they do not pass. Then they have to do it all over again and spend another $350 and hope they get to take the test in a timely fashion again.

We think we've come up with a great addition/alternative to conventional classes. We have an online course that we own, taught by professionals, that goes through the processes of both preparing the materials and best practices for taking the exam. (Students must obtain their own manuals, but that info is below on our homepage.) 

So, you have the option to hire Elevator Training Academy training professionals to train in a conventional classroom setting, or you and/or your mechanics may join our online training class described below OR we offer a savings if you care to use both the tools of person-to-person training and use of the online training as a study guide to maximize your success for certification.

By the way, we have the ability to train other trainers should your company like to have us train some in-house people. We can set you up with a temporary user account if you want to take a look at the online course we have.

Choices including the online training include the ability to learn and review at one’s own pace in ANY place and at ANY time. Study and Review on a flash-capable laptop, tablet or even some smartphones, on a train or bus at midnight is even possible if it meets your schedule…

The tools we offer are great ways of not only teaching the students, once, but they are excellent studying resources to maintain/cement that knowledge to ensure exam success.
