Automotive Lift Institute Certification

ALI_Certified_SidebarCongratulations to Jamie Cox for achieving accreditation with the Automotive Lift Institute, Certified Inspector Program.

This Certification Program provides assurance that your Lift Inspector has been tested and proven competent to thoroughly inspect an installed vehicle lift.

“Proper vehicle lift certification, installation, and inspection have come under increased scrutiny in recent years by OSHA and other local, state, provincial and federal health and safety officers,” explains R.W. “Bob” O’Gorman, ALI president. “This has resulted in an increase in shops looking for qualified automotive lift inspectors. Without a national certification program in place, vehicle lift inspection companies haven’t been able to offer independent validation that their inspectors are qualified. The Certification Program will provide third-party assurance that a Certified Lift Inspector has been tested and proven competent to thoroughly inspect an installed vehicle lift and report on its suitability for continued use and/or the need for maintenance or repair. We encourage all vehicle lift inspectors to demonstrate their professionalism and differentiate themselves from their competitors by getting certified” – ALI President R.W. “Bob” O’Gorman

Automotive Lifts Require Annual Inspection. Contact your local sales representative for more information or to book inspections of the lifts in your shop.
