Lift Maintainers training course in Bologna with the 30-years experience of NOVA Elevators.

The Italian professionals who want to become lift fitters and technicians of elevators and platform lifts have to pass a compulsory exam which includes theory, practice and clear guidelines compliant with the international norms.

Some examples from the field are also needed, especially if they are taught by specialized experts who know elevators and platform lifts in all their aspects.

The technical director of NOVA Elevators, Engineer Filippo Nicoli, has brought his knowledge and experience to the preparatory course for lifts and homelift installers and technicians, held in Bologna province by a local coaching institute.

The 60 hours of the course are aimed at preparing the students for the exam required for the issue of the Certificate for the Maintenance of Elevators in accordance with the Italian Law.
