The National Elevator Industry Education Program (NEIEP) developed the Elevator Industry Aptitude Test (EIAT) pre-apprenticeship exam for the International Union of Elevator Constructors (IUEC). The stated mission of the NEIEP is to enhance the knowledge and skills of apprentices for the benefit of workers, employers, and the elevator industry. The EIAT mainly focuses on the following:

  • Reading comprehension
  • Mechanical Comprehension
  • Arithmetic computation

The aim of the exam is to assess your aptitude for working in the elevator industry. There is no penalty for incorrect answers, so your score depends entirely on what you answer correctly. Practice answering sample questions and reviewing math formulas and functions to be more comfortable during your test. By thoroughly preparing, you will optimize your opportunity to proceed into an apprenticeship. If you are applying for a elevator pre-apprenticeship in Alberta, you will need to take the Alberta Entrance Exam 4.


Elevator Apprentice Application:

Applications are open to everyone over the age of 18 with a high school diploma or GED. Simply contact your local International Union of Elevator Constructors (IUEC) and request an apprentice application. You will receive an application package that contains the application and apprenticeship information.

Return the completed application along with proof of your age and your high school transcript or official GED test results record. If your application and documents are received by IUEC within 15 days of your receipt of the application package, you will be given a date and time for taking the Elevator Industry Aptitude Test (EIAT).

Elevator Apprentice Test Format:

Reading Comprehension

On this section of the exam, you will be challenged on an understanding of English words in various contexts, figuring out sentence structures, and overall comprehension of concepts and ideas in the text.

Mechanical Comprehension

The mechanical comprehension section will cover your knowledge on electrical circuits, pulleys, greats, springs, levels and more. You might be asked how much weight is needed to balance a lever or how much force is required to lift various weights.

Arithmetic Computation

In this segment, you will have to use various mathematical formulas, primary math, and numerical reasoning. For instance, you might be asked to round off numbers, answer division questions showing the remainder as a fraction of the divisor, and more.

Score Evaluation

You can expect to receive your EIAT results by mail. The test itself is based on a pass/fail system. The threshold for passing the Elevator Industry Aptitude Test is 70%. A test result of 69% and below requires a re-application. Along with notice of a pass, you will receive the scheduled date and time for the all-important interview.

For the interview, you will receive a score from each interviewer. The average of the two scores becomes your interview result. The score needed to pass this step and proceed toward your apprenticeship is 70%. You will find a 4-tier ranking system that finalizes your score.

  • Tier 1: 96–100 points
  • Tier 2: 90–95 points
  • Tier 3: 80–89 points
  • Tier 4: 70–79 points

The higher you rank, the better the chance you will be chosen as a paid apprentice by your prospective employer.

Here are several tips, which can help make the difference when taking the test.

1. The study guide will give you insight into the difficulty levels on various sections and sub-sections. Armed with this information, you will better understand how to calculate your time on the real test.

2. On the writing section, ensure that you structure your answers before hand so you can answer each question quickly and precisely.

3. In the section with diagrams and formulas, keep in mind that questions require reasoning and interpretation. Moreover, make sure you have a strong understanding of the types of formulas and conversions needed for the test, this will make using the conversion charts easier.



What happens if I fail the exam? If you do not reach a minimum of 70 on the test, you will not be called for an interview. You can re-apply to take the test at a later date.

How long will the interview be? The interview will take 15-20 minutes and will include multiple interviewers from the JAC (Joint Apprenticeship Committee.)

Will I be given any aids during the test? Yes, for instance, you will be given formula sheets, conversion charts and diagrams.
