The interactive course covers safe lifting practices for all types of automotive lifts, according to the company, and for the first time is now offered in English or Spanish.
“ALI and our member companies take our responsibility to technicians, managers, dealers and shop owners very seriously. After all, their safety is riding on our lifts every day,” says R.W. “Bob” O’Gorman, ALI president. “We have supported the training of millions of lift operators over the last 30 years—we’ve distributed more than 3 million Lifting It Right manuals alone. By significantly lowering the price of the online course and offering a Spanish version for the first time, we hope to reach even more people.”
This year marks the 30th anniversary of the introduction of Lifting It Right as a simple safety manual. While the core focus on lift safety is unchanged, O’Gorman notes, the new course is modernized in content and delivery. The course can be taken online with a computer or mobile device.
Most people finish it in an hour or less, and at the end, a certificate of completion is stored online for easy access if a shop needs to produce training records.
In addition to updated technical content, ALI has added professional narrators, real-world scenarios, and all-new 3-D animations to make the program more engaging. It is available to order from ALI at www.autolift.org/ali-store/.
