ALI staff members and Factory Designated Trainers will open the session with a Participant’s Orientation on Wednesday, Nov. 6. Attendance at a six-hour Orientation is mandatory for all Certified Lift Inspector candidates. The Orientation will outline administrative aspects of the Lift Inspector Certification Program, introduce expectations and answer questions.

Thursday, Nov. 7, activities will include group study for both the pre-course exam and the course exam. The group study sessions are open to any enrolled participants who have attended an Orientation. On Friday, Nov. 8, participants may take the pre-course exam. Those who have previously passed the pre-course exam will be given the opportunity to take the course exam.

“We know our inspectors’ time is valuable and want to give them a cost-effective opportunity to take care of several requirements at once,” said R.W. “Bob” O’Gorman, ALI president. “The ‘all-in-one’ session will provide an efficient and focused environment to move an inspector quickly through the certification process.”

The previously scheduled Participant’s Orientation on Nov. 8 will still be held as a standalone event for those who do not wish to take advantage of the “all-in-one” package.

Registration for the “all-in-one” event’s Participant’s Orientation and group study activities are included in the Lift Inspector Certification Program fee, which is discounted to $1,000 through Dec. 31. The fee also includes a Candidate Handbook and extensive course materials. Additional fees will be required for those taking an exam.

To reserve a seat at the “all-in-one” event, email info@autolift.org or call (607) 756-7775 by Sept. 20.

The ALI Lift Inspector Certification Program was created to provide third-party qualification of vehicle lift inspectors and to certify those who demonstrate that they are capable of properly inspecting vehicle lifts in accordance with the ANSI standard governing vehicle lift inspection and in support of OSHA’s General Duty Clause, as well as provincial requirements in Canada.
