CORTLAND, N.Y. (May 30, 2013) — The Automotive Lift Institute (ALI) is offering a half-price discount on registration for its Lift Inspector Certification Program.
The signup fee sale, which reduced the price from $2,000 to $1,000, expires Sept. 30.
ALI said the fee covers a single candidate's program application, printed course materials and attendance for one company representative at a scheduled participant orientation workshop. All participating organizations with at least one certified inspector on staff will also receive associate class membership in ALI for the remaining calendar year, starting at the time of certification completion of the first candidate.
"There's never been a better time to sign up for the program," said R.W. "Bob" O'Gorman, ALI president. "If you join now, you will pay half-price for all the benefits. Plus, you can offer certified lift inspections before your competitors. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be among the first certified lift inspectors."
Once a candidate registers and pays the non-refundable fee, ALI said, he or she must work through several steps before achieving certification. Candidates must attend a Participant's Orientation, pass both the Pre-Course Exam and Course Exam, and then conduct 12 Practical Experience Inspections of vehicle lifts.
To register online, visit the discount at the ALI Store and select the "Automotive Lift Inspector Program–Participant Application, Initiation Fee" product. To register more than one candidate, call ALI headquarters at 607-756-7775. For more information on the lift certification program, visit the ALI's website.
