Maxton Manufacturing Company Completes Certified Elevator Valve Training at Urban Elevator

Minden, NV- On January 18, 2017 Maxton completed their hydraulic elevator control valve CET training class with 30 mechanics attending from Urban Elevator in Cicero, IL.  This continuing education class provided the mechanics with credits (4.0 credit hours) through the NAEC’s approved Certified Elevator Technician program. These sessions are made up of classroom instruction and practical application through valve adjustment and troubleshooting with the Maxton TA4M training unit.

Here are just a few comments from mechanics in attendance…

“I learned a lot.  I really enjoyed the part where we worked on the simulator.”


“The Maxton guys did a very good job!  It is worth every penny just to build that face to face relationship with a vendor.”


“Free dinner, certification hours and a night to catch up with my Union brothers…priceless!  The training was good too.”


It makes a big impact on many levels when the instructor and the information being shared really applies to what the mechanics face in the field daily.  Several expressed how they were going to apply what they learned on some specific trouble jobs with the information given.  Nothing like an ah ha moment.


“Often an after-hours training can be a bit flat, but the energy level at Urban remained high and everyone stayed on task, which made for a productive evening all around,” said Billy Shrum Technical Director.
