Automotive Lift Institute launches online database of lift inspector testing locations

Dec. 17, 2012
Program creates third party qualification of vehicle lift inspectors.

Participants in the Automotive Lift Institute’s (ALI) new Lift Inspector Certification Program now have an easy tool to use to find local testing sites where they can take their Pre-Course and Course examinations. ALI has partnered with Applied Measurement Professionals (AMP) to create a searchable database of locations that support the program’s tests at

Applicants simply visit the website and click on the “candidates” box in the upper right corner. In the first and second drop-down menus, select “Other,” and then “Automotive Lift Institute, Inc.” Applicants choose which test they are approved to take, ALI’s pre-course or course examination, in the third drop-down. 

After all the information is selected, AMP’s portal will show a “Locate Testing Centers” link. The testing sites listed can be narrowed by state or searched by ZIP code.

“This is a really easy way for someone to take the final steps on the path to becoming an ALI Certified Lift Inspector,” said ALI President R.W. “Bob” O’Gorman. “The ALI Lift Inspector Certification Program is brand new and we want to make things as convenient as possible to encourage people to participate. You can even register for your test online once you find your location. With multiple testing sites, applicants can take the exams at a time and place that works for them.”

While testing sites are located in most major U.S. cities, O’Gorman notes that Canadian-based candidates can contact ALI directly for options available to them.

The Lift Inspector Certification Program was created to provide third-party qualification of vehicle lift inspectors and to certify those who demonstrate that they are qualified to properly inspect vehicle lifts in accordance with ANSI standards and in support of OSHA’s General Duty Clause and provincial requirements in Canada.
