Programme approved in 2013.

Elevator mechanics install, rebuild, modify, repair and maintain mechanized conveyor systems. These systems are made up of devices and accessories such as passenger and freight elevators, escalators, moving sidewalks, suspended scaffolding, dumbwaiters, moving stage sets, ski lifts and other similar devices generally used to transport people, objects or equipment. Installing a mechanized conveyor system involves connecting the electrical wiring. Elevator mechanics work in the four sectors of the construction industry (residential, institutional, commercial and industrial), as well as in civil engineering and roadworks. They also work outside the construction sector.
