MADISON, Ind. (Aug. 14, 2013)—The first graduating class of Automotive Lift Institute (ALI) Certified Lift Inspectors included 20 Rotary Lift distributor and installer employees.
Rotary Lift said this feat was more than any other manufacturer and the company has more than 100 additional Rotary Lift-affiliated inspectors enrolled in the program.
Annual lift inspections are required by ANSI/ALI ALCTV-2011, the national standard covering vehicle lift operation, inspection and maintenance. Rotary Lift said ALI Certified Lift Inspectors are qualified to inspect any vehicle lift built regardless of manufacturer, so a Rotary Lift distributor who has completed the program is capable of professionally inspecting a shop's entire inventory of lifting equipment.
