The National Elevator Industry Educational Program (NEIEP), created by the National Elevator Industry, Inc. and the International Union of Elevator Constructors (IUEC), is a joint labor-management and education program that serves the IUEC.
The NEIEP is primarily responsible for the management and implementation of curriculum design, probationary training, and program evaluation for all apprentices entering the trade. Furthermore, the purpose of the NEIEP is to enhance the knowledge and skill set of apprentices and mechanics.
The NEIEP periodically assists employers within the IUEC by conducting recruitment drives, which helps hire qualified apprentices. This program assists and instructs new apprentices, in addition to continuing elevator mechanics. However, in order to become an apprentice, you must successfully complete the hiring and recruitment process.
In order to become an elevator constructor apprentice, you must undergo the following steps:
The Elevator Industry Aptitude Test, which was developed by the National Elevator Industry Education Program (NEIEP), primarily focuses on arithmetic computation, reading comprehension, and mechanical comprehension. The purpose of the test is to assess your aptitude for working in the elevator industry.
The Elevator Industry Aptitude Test (EIAT) does not give a penalty for incorrect answers. Therefore, if you’re unsure about an answer, it’s better to guess than leave it blank. Additionally, the EIAT is scored on a pass or fail basis, with 70% being the minimum for passing.
Applicants that fail the EIAT will not be considered for an interview and must wait until the next recruitment period. Therefore, in order to ensure that you make it to the interview stage, prepare with JobTestPrep’s NEIEP PrepPack™.
The post-assessment interview will be conducted by two members of the Joint Apprenticeship Committee (JAC); one member will be from the IUEC, and the other will be an employer. During this 15 - 20 minute interview, you will be asked a series of questions (all applicants will encounter the same questions), which will then be graded. Your overall interview score will be averaged between the two scores (one score from the employer and the other score from the IUEC member), and then ranked against the scores of other applicants. The minimum passing score is 70%, but again, your rank and position on the candidates list is determined by your total score, in relation to others.
JobTestPrep can help you prepare for the NEIEP apprenticeship in the following areas:
