It’s easier than ever to make sure every technician in a shop receives training on the proper use of vehicle lifts. Automotive Lift Institute (ALI), is now offering an annual subscription option for its popular Lifting It Right online lift safety training course. An annual facility-wide subscription allows everyone in a single location to take the course as often as needed throughout the year.

This option makes it easier for facilities to train new employees, provides a significant cost savings for larger organizations, and simplifies payment. Another new pricing option for the online course is a lower rate for vocational students or schools.

“For more than 70 years, ALI has been dedicated to keeping lift operators safe on the job,” says R.W. “Bob” O’Gorman, ALI president. “Everyone should have access to training on the proper use and care of vehicle lifts, and we believe that our Lifting It Right manuals and online course have helped save lives and prevent injuries. By making the online course more accessible, we hope to help protect even more people.”

An annual subscription is $240 per facility location. The new student rate is $10 per person. Standard pricing is $16 per participant for the English version of the course and $24 per participant for Spanish.

Lifting It Right covers proper lifting practices for all types of vehicle lifts. The online course can be taken on a computer or mobile device. Most people finish it in an hour or less. At the end, a certificate of completion is stored online for easy access if a shop needs to produce training records. The course helps facilities comply with national and local safety training requirements.

Lifting It Right is available to order at www.autolift.org/ali-store/. Once registered, the trainee can take up to 90 days to successfully complete the program, including an online test.
