The programme aims to meet the educational needs of Lift / Escalator Technicians through academic and practical training. Upon successfully completing the programme, graduates will be equipped with technical knowledge and skills and qualified to become a Registered Lift Worker and / or Registered Escalator Worker under the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department (EMSD), provided that they have at least four years of experience in the industry.

The programme will be offered on a part-time basis with 3 semesters in each academic year. For year 1 modules, there will be 24 contact hours per module and will be taught 3 hours per week (i.e. total 8 weeks). For year 2 modules, there will be 30 contact hours per module and will be taught 3 hours per week (i.e. total 10 weeks). For year 3 modules, there will be 36 contact hours per module and will be taught 3 hours per week (i.e. total 12 weeks). The Final Year Project/Practicum will be held in year 4. There will be 72 contact hours so that students can seek feedback and guidance from their supervisors.

The language modules will be taught by face-to-face lectures with small group discussions, and case studies. For specialism modules, different teaching and learning approaches are adopted, including face-to-face lectures, class discussions, group work, practical, site visit, field work, laboratory work, directed self-study and computer aided learning.
