AIMS CERTIFICATION OVERVIEW

INSPECTOR CERTIFICATION PROGRAM
 

The Inspector Certification Program is designed to test the knowledge of individuals working in the inspection field within the amusement industry. Certification is an outward demonstration of one's knowledge of general activities and technologies that are an integral part of a daily amusement ride program and his or her participation in such activities and programs. Certification is useful for securing additional business opportunities and jurisdictional accreditation as well as for personal development.


There are three levels of inspector certification.

  • Level I, Associate Ride Inspector (ARI)
  • Level II, Certified Ride Inspector (CRI)
  • Level III, Professional Ride Inspector (PRI)

In order to achieve certification, an individual must provide verification of his or her experience and education and he or she must receive passing scores on the certification exams. The certifications are renewable. In order to maintain the certification, receipt of continuing education units (CEU), attendance in an AIMS-approved curriculum and/or involvement in the amusement industry must be documented. Level I (ARI) certification tests are offered in both English and Spanish.

The AIMS Inspector Certification Program is an internationally recognized program for verification of knowledge and participation in the field of amusement ride inspection.

When an individual achieves a Level III certification, it will be clear that person is a valuable asset to the amusement industry. A Professional Ride Inspector is a person who not only has gained knowledge with years of experience, but he or she also unselfishly gives back to the industry from which he or she has benefited.
