Orientation in New York

 Cortland, NY (July 2, 2013) – The Automotive Lift Institute (ALI) has scheduled an additional Participant’s Orientation to meet growing demand from Lift Inspector Certification Program candidates. The workshop will be held Sept. 10 in Cortland, N.Y. Interested participants must register by July 19. Attendance at an Orientation session is mandatory for all Certified Lift Inspector candidates.

“Lift Inspector Certification Program enrollment has grown over the last few months, so we wanted to make it as easy as possible for all the new participants to meet the program requirements,” said R.W. “Bob” O’Gorman, ALI president. “Registration is already closed for our upcoming Los Angeles, Vancouver and Edmonton sessions. Had we not added this bonus session, the only remaining workshop with available seats would have been the one scheduled for November in Las Vegas. We just opened registration for the Cortland session last week and have already filled several seats.”

The workshop will consist solely of a six-hour Orientation that outlines the administrative aspects of the Lift Inspector Certification Program, introduce ALI and participant expectations and answer questions. Every candidate must attend an Orientation session to qualify to take the program’s pre-course exam or course exam.

Orientations are open exclusively to inspector candidates and employees responsible for program quality and implementation within their organizations. Registration is included in the Lift Inspector Certification Program fee, which is discounted to $1,000 through Sept. 30. The fee also includes a Candidate Handbook and extensive course materials.
