Equipment maintenance course for people with disabilities

We invite you to our Operator Training Centre for courses in equipment maintenance for the disabled. Our qualified instructors will provide you with valuable knowledge and the classes are delivered in an interesting way. Participants are encouraged to discuss during the course. After the lecture part of the course, participants take part in practical exercises where they learn about the construction of the platforms, the safety rules applicable to their operation and learn methods of repairing the most common faults. The training consists of a theoretical and practical part and will prepare you to pass the UDT exam. 


  • Health and safety regulations and first aid rules applicable when working with handling equipment persons with disabilities
  • Breakdown of facilities for people with disabilities; 
  • List of faults that frequently occur during the operation of the equipment; 
  • Maintenance of different types of equipment for people with disabilities; 
  • Elements of the design of equipment for people with disabilities. 


After completing the course and passing the exam, you will be certified to work as a maintenance technician for handling equipment in companies and establishments specialising in repairing such equipment. 

Maintenance work 

Maintenance is the work to check the correct operation and wear and tear of equipment on an ongoing basis. Depending on the complexity of the fault, maintenance of lifts for the disabled consists of replacing the faulty component of the lifting system. Maintenance thus minimises the risk of failure and ensures passenger safety. Corrective maintenance is the carrying out of repairs to the equipment after a sudden damage or failure. Preventive maintenance is carrying out inspections and making possible repairs. Typically, preventive maintenance is carried out in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions or management policy. 

Responsibilities of the conservator: 

  • Keeping a maintenance log and noting in it the service inspection 
  • Checking the operation of buttons on the control panel and call buttons 
  • Cleaning and lubrication of the running track 
  • Visual inspection of the reducer with engine 
  • Adjustment of the drive system 
  • Compliance with crane maintenance intervals 
  • Running an emergency repair service; 
  • Communicating the need for work such as repairs.

What are platforms for people with disabilities? 

Platforms for the disabled consist of a platform and a lifting mechanism that can be equipped with a hydraulic or electric drive. The use of this type of equipment removes architectural barriers to mobility for people with disabilities. Regular maintenance will ensure that the equipment is maintained in a condition that allows it to be used safely. If we want the equipment to last a long time and be safe, we should not forget about regular maintenance. In emergency situations, we should find an alternative to the operation of our equipment. Maintenance of the mechanism should be the basis for the correct operation of the equipment. 

Types of equipment for disabled persons 

Stair platforms - in situations where a vertical lift cannot be installed for various reasons, a stair platform is installed. It is adapted for self-service by a disabled person. The running tracks are mounted to the wall or to the stair treads, while installation is possible both indoors and outdoors.  

Vertical platforms - enable people with disabilities to overcome architectural barriers due to their practicality and ease of use. Stair carriers (stairlifts) are the cheapest form of equipment for the disabled, requiring an attendant to operate them. Thanks to the possibility to disassemble the stairlift into two parts, we are able to transport it to any place without any problem.  

lifts for the disabled

Stairlifts (stair chairs) - as the name suggests, this type of device is used to transport people up and down stairs. It is suitable for disabled and elderly people who have difficulty climbing stairs on their own. The advantage of this equipment is its small size and ease of use. 

Purpose of the training 

The aim of the training is to prepare participants to become maintenance technicians of mobility equipment for people with disabilities and to pass an examination before the Office of Technical Inspection, which issues qualification certificates.
