IUEC mechanics have the knowledge, skills, and experience necessary to fulfill the needs of the wind power industry. If you are a wind tower owner or operator, don’t assume unnecessary risk by allowing your equipment to be serviced by inexperienced hands.
IUEC mechanics go through a rigorous four-year USDOL-Registered Apprenticeship program at the National Elevator Industry Educational Program (NEIEP). To graduate and achieve mechanic status, apprentices must complete 8 semesters of college-level classroom training, log 8,000 hours of on-the-job learning under the supervision of an experienced mechanic, and pass a comprehensive capstone examination.
During their apprenticeship, IUEC members master all aspects of the elevator industry including building, installing, servicing, and maintaining state-of-the-art electrical & mechanical systems. Throughout their training, safety is always a priority.
IUEC training does not end once apprenticeship is over. As part of their benefit package, journeyman mechanics regularly participate in continuing education courses to learn about new equipment, update their skill sets to adapt to changes in the industry, and refresh their knowledge base.
