Item Type: Article
Abstract: Following the introduction of the first edition of the European standard EN 81-1:1977 (introduced in the UK as BS 5655-1:1979) the UK Lift Industry needed a wide ranging re-education of its workforce in both the Design and Field service. The need to update the workforce was recognised by the then National Association of Lift Makers (NALM), now the Lift and Escalator Industry Association (LEIA ). They also recognised that due to the wide geographic dispersion of potential students, distance learning was possibly the best mechanism for delivery.
