Что я буду изучать?

Durham College is a public training provider for an elevating devices mechanic apprenticeship, positioning you for employment as an apprentice upon graduation. Graduates are eligible for exemption from the Level 1 and 2 of the in-school requirements for EDM 636E apprenticeship training. Graduates will also receive TSSA-mandated EDM-T Safety Training certification and meet the Ministry of Labour’s Working at Heights training requirements.

Students hoping to become Elevating Devices Mechanic apprentices will gain foundational knowledge with industry terms and hands-on experience on actual elevating equipment while applying sustainability best practices in the workplace.

The Mechanical Technician - Elevating Devices diploma program prepares students to enter into the elevating devices industry as an apprentice. Elevating Devices Mechanics must complete an apprenticeship training program to become a licensed constructor or service mechanic. Graduates choosing not to enter into an apprenticeship could also secure positions as sales persons or inspectors in the industry.

In just four semesters, students will have demonstrated the ability to:

  • Apply quality control and quality assurance procedures to meet organizational standards and requirements.
  • Use current and emerging technologies to support the implementation of mechanical and manufacturing projects.
  • Interpret, prepare and modify mechanical drawings and other related technical documents.
  • Manufacture, assemble, maintain and repair mechanical components according to required specifications.
  • Contribute to the planning, implementation and evaluation of projects.
  • Analyze and solve mechanical and electrical problems on elevating devices equipment by applying mathematics and fundamentals of electricity and electronics.

Career Options


  • Elevating device mechanic apprentice
  • Elevating device constructor trainee
  • Service mechanic trainee
  • Inside or outside salesperson for an elevating device company


  • Elevating construction companies
  • Accessibility companies
  • Elevating service companies
  • Airports
  • Transportation companies
  • Residential buildings

Graduates may acquire credit transfer toward the Mechanical Technician – Millwright diploma; and may be eligible to apply their academic credits towards further study through Durham College’s partnerships with many Canadian and international colleges and universities.

Co-operative education (co-op)

The best way to succeed in your field is to immerse yourself in it! Co-op is an excellent way to build your professional network, explore career paths and apply in-class teachings to real work situations. Co-op is a model of education that integrates academic learning with workplace learning in fields relevant to our students’ academic and personal goals. Similar to an academic course, work terms are a mandatory component of this form of experiential learning.

Students in the Mechanical Techniques – Elevating Devices Diploma program will be invited to apply to the co-op option during their first academic semester. Entrance to the co-op option is limited and the processes for securing a work term are competitive. Students who qualify for co-op will be eligible to complete a four-month, paid work term between the third and fourth semesters of their program.
