Orientations are open exclusively to inspector candidates and employees responsible for program quality and implementation within their organizations. Registration is included in the Lift Inspector Certification Program fee, which is discounted to $1,000 through Sept. 30. The fee also includes a Candidate Handbook and extensive course materials.
