CORTLAND, N.Y. (Aug. 29, 2013) — The Automotive Lift Institute (ALI) is offering a digital version of its Lift Insepctor Certification Program for Canadian candidates.
The ALI previously had offered only printed versions of its pre-course and course exams on specific dates in Canada, but now offers computer-based versions of the exams on-demand at testing centers across Canada.
"The digital format makes it much easier for participants to take the exams," said R.W. "Bob" O'Gorman, ALI president.
"Canadian inspectors previously had to wait for a paper and pencil test to be scheduled or they would have to travel to a U.S. border state to visit a testing center."
The ALI said to complete the Lift Inspector Certification Program, each inspector must pass the pre-course exam followed by the course exam. Exam fees are not included in the program initiation fee, which is discounted to $1,000 (U.S.) through Dec. 31. The new computer-based tests cover the same material as the paper and pencil tests.
To find an AMP-affiliated testing location and register, participants can visit www.goamp.com and click the "Schedule/Apply For An Exam" box. In the first and second drop-down menus, select "Other" and then "Automotive Lift Institute, Inc." Applicants choose which test they need to take, either the Pre-Course Examination or the Course Examination, in the third drop-down.
