I have been working with electronics and electrical since elementary school. I have a diploma in electronics, a degree in math and computer science and education. After some time, I entered the Elevating Devices Mechanic trade and obtained my EDM class A license.

Throughout my years I have been involved in teaching in various ways. I have taught formally at Niagara College, Smithville Christian High School, Elevating Devices Training Academy and now Mohawk College. I have also been training many of the more junior employees at the elevator company I work for. Additionally, I have trained many people to be sound techs at various churches.

Since the beginning of 2019, I have been working at developing the Elevating Devices Mechanic apprenticeship program at Mohawk College and beginning the development of the post-secondary Elevating Devices Technician diploma program targeting to launch in 2020.

If you have any questions please send me an email, I would be glad to answer the questions that I can: alan.bennink [at]
