The Urban Elevator Service, Inc. Continuing Education Program is designed to
offer field personnel access to training that will reinforce and broaden their
knowledge and skill set in the areas of safety, technical applications, code
compliance and general business practices. The program is structured to help our
field technicians become more adept technically, work safer, and more easily
contribute to the achievement of the company’s business goals. At the same time,
great care has been taken to insure that our mechanics are able to use this
program to meet the continuing education requirements for their Illinois State
Elevator Mechanic License.
Courses will be offered at multiple times during the year during both working and
non-working hours. For every hour of unpaid voluntary participation each
employee will be offered a matching hour of paid class time during regular
working hours up to a total of 6 paid hours per year.
All participants will be required to meet these minimum standards:
THE PROGRAM IS OPEN TO ALL URBAN EMPLOYEES. However in keeping with the programs
primary objectives, should there ever be a need to limit class size, priority
will be given to mechanics first, followed by apprentices, followed by field
supervisors, followed by office personnel.
It is the goal of Urban Elevator Service, Inc. that all field technicians hold an
OSHA 10 hour safety card. Any technician that does not currently hold a 10 hour
card is required to complete this program during their first year of
participation in the Continuing Education Program. While 10-hour training is
made available to all employees at no cost, employees may obtain the training
from any source they see fit as long as they provide Urban with documentation of
The 10 hour card program curriculum is very specific and mandated by OSHA. It
consists of 10 hours of class time covering OSHA mandated subject matter.
Several times during the year the 10 hour course will be offered at the Urban
Elevator main office in a single day format. OSHA requirements state that break
time cannot be included in the mandatory 10 hours of class time required for the
program. Therefore each day-long session has been scheduled for 12 hours so that
the instructor will have adequate time to meet all program requirements. This
single day program will consist of a combination of paid and unpaid time.
The required classes are:
Of the 4 remaining hours of class time 2 of the following classes must be taken:
The remaining two hours of class time can be taken from any of the following:
**OSHA requires that the 10 hour card program be completed within a 6 month period. Please take this into consideration when scheduling your classes.
