National Elevator Industry Educational Program

Welcome to Elevator Education.How do you become an Elevator Constructor? is a question commonly asked of those in our trade. Many are intriguedwith the mechanics and technology of the equipment installed, repaired and maintained in our industry. The fact is that the skillsrequired of every successful man and woman in our trade are comprised of a host of technical disciplines combined into one job.Electrical, plumbing, pipefitting, sheet metal, steel work, welding, electronics, rigging and hoisting are a few of the skills necessaryto work as an Elevator Constructor. So where do you go to learn the trade? The National Elevator Industry Educational Program(NEIEP).The Elevator Constructor members are among the most skilled and well-trained of all the building trades. How did theybecome so proficient? Enrollment and successful completion in the NEIEP program. The program incorporates independent study,classroom training and “hands-on” experiences culminating in a national certification exam. The NationalElevator Industry Inc., and the International Union of Elevator Constructors recognize the need for extensivetraining to serve the needs of our ever-changing industry. Together, since 1967, they have provided support anddirection for the focus of the program to better serve the industry.This catalog is your guide to the courses offered by the National Elevator Industry Educational Program (NEIEP).On behalf of the NEIEP Staff, thank you for taking the time to review our curriculum.Best wishes on your educational endeavors.John J.
