Created to save participants time and money, this course is a back-to-back offering of “Introduction to the Maintenance & Inspection of Elevators and Escalators” (PD100) and “ASME A17.1 Safety Code and A17.2 Inspection,” (PD102). By taking this course, you could save up to $1,040.

PD100 covers the essential design and operation of elevators and escalator systems and will address the terminology and functions of the various associated mechanical and electrical components. PD102 is based on on ASME A17.1 /CSA B44 Safety Code for Elevators and Escalators and ASME A17.2 Guide for Inspection of Elevators, Escalators & Moving Walk. It provides a top-to-bottom look at inspection techniques and concepts including how to conduct elevator inspections and tests safely, both for scheduled updates and unexpected problems.
