Vehicle lift safety training course offered online

Posted on February 13, 2014

A new online version of the Automotive Lift Institute (ALI)'s "Lifting It Right" vehicle lift safety training course is now live.

The course is produced by ALI and hosted by racing stars Richard and Kyle Petty. ALI partnered with dealer services provider KPA, which has trained more than 1 million automotive industry professionals, to adapt material from the "Lifting It Right" DVD into an interactive, web-based format.

ALI said that the information presented applies to lift operators at dealerships, independent shops, government agencies, vocational schools and other facilities.

“With health and safety officials increasing their focus on vehicle service providers throughout North America, it is crucial that members of the service and repair industry take ownership of safety issues and embrace a proactive approach to accident prevention,” ALI President R.W. “Bob” O’Gorman said.

In "Lifting It Right: 2014 Online Edition," a narrator guides trainees through curriculum covering lift types, the lifting and lowering process, and lift maintenance. Real-world scenarios with corresponding questions are presented to engage participants, who interact with the content and receive immediate feedback when answering the questions.

At the conclusion of the program, a certificate of completion is generated and stored online. It can also be printed and displayed or filed.

The 2014 online edition of the course is available here. The cost is $29 per trainee. For more information about the course, click here.
