Rotary Lift to Require Installers to Receive Certification
March 25, 2014—Rotary Lift on Monday announced that the company now requires each Rotary Authorized Installer (RAI) to have at least one Automotive Lift Institute (ALI) Certified Lift Inspector on staff.
Rotary Lift said there are already more ALI Certified Lift Inspectors in Rotary Lift’s RAI network than in any other manufacturer’s distribution channel.
“There are nearly 400 RAIs across the United States and 60 percent of them currently have employees enrolled in the ALI Lift Inspector Certification Program,” says Ron Lainhart, parts and service manager for Rotary Lift and an ALI factory-designated trainer. “We are requiring the rest of our RAIs to enroll a participant by the end of 2014. As a result, Rotary Lift RAIs will be fully equipped to meet the changing needs of the vehicle service industry.”
The ALI Lift Inspector Certification Program provides third-party verification that an inspector is qualified to inspect any vehicle lift. All ALI Certified Lift Inspectors must meet prerequisites and pass two exams to complete the program.
Rotary Lift said RAI companies are located in all 50 states, so the new requirement will put an ALI Certified Lift Inspector close to most lift users.
