CORTLAND, N.Y. (Aug. 28, 2013) — The Automotive Lift Institute (ALI) has scheduled its first ever all-in-one Lift Inspector Certification Program session.
The certification will be held Nov. 6-8 in Las Vegas in conjunction with the 2013 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show.
ALI said the event will give participants an opportunity to complete multiple program requirements at once. Interested participants must register by Sept. 20.
ALI staff members and factory designated trainers will open the session Nov. 6 with an orientation event, during which administrative aspects of the program will be outlined. Attendance at the six-hour orientation is mandatory for participating Certified Lift Inspector candidates.
Activities on day two of the program 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, ALI said.
On 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."
Registration for the 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 handbook for candidates and extensive course materials. Additional fees will be required in order to take an exam.
To reserve a spot at the event, interested candidates should send an email to [email protected] or call 607-756-7775 by Sept. 20.
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, ALI said.
