ALI Lift Inspector Certification Program Expands Computer-Based Testing Into Canada

Canadian candidates enrolled in the Automotive Lift Institute (ALI) Lift Inspector Certification Program now have more options for taking the two required program exams. ALI had previously offered only paper and pencil versions of its Pre-Course Exam and Course Exam on specific dates in Canada. The organization will now offer computer-based versions of the exams on-demand at testing centers across Canada.

Canadian candidates enrolled in the Automotive Lift Institute (ALI) Lift Inspector Certification Program now have more options for taking the two required program exams. ALI had previously offered only paper and pencil versions of its Pre-Course Exam and Course Exam on specific dates in Canada. The organization will now offer 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. With computer-based testing, Lift Inspector Certification Program participants can take the exams when their schedules allow at locations that are convenient for them.”

In order 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, 2013. The new computer-based tests cover the same material as the paper and pencil tests.

ALI partners with Applied Measurement Professionals (AMP) to administer the computer-based tests in Canada. Candidates must submit a Lift Inspector Candidate Examination Application and payment to register for an exam. 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.
After the initial information is entered, AMP’s portal will show a “Locate Testing Center” link that takes participants to a country selection page. Canadian testing centers are located in:
 
Alberta
Calgary, Edmonton
 
British Columbia
Castlegar, Kelowna, Nelson, Prince George, Trail, Vancouver, Victoria
 
Manitoba
Winnipeg
 
New Brunswick
Fredericton
 
Newfoundland and Labrador
St. John’s
 
Nova Scotia
Halifax
 
Ontario
Burlington, Courtice, Hamilton, Mississauga, Oakville, Ottawa, Pickering, Scarborough, Sudbury, Thunder Bay, Vaughan, Windsor
 
Quebec
Montreal
 
Saskatchewan
Regina, Saskatoon
 
The ALI Lift Inspector Certification Program was created to provide third-party qualification of vehicle lift inspectors and to certify those who demonstrate that they are capable of properly inspecting vehicle lifts in accordance with provincial requirements in Canada and the ANSI standard governing vehicle lift inspection.
