1NT rebid showing 13-15 balanced

We play mini-NTs so we need buckets for 10-12 (1NT), 13-15 (1 followed by a 1NT rebid), 16-18 (1 followed by a 1NT rebid). Initially, I was alerting all these auctions, but then I decided that 1 - 1 - 1NT, for example, did not require an alert. 

Edit to add: We are alerting 1 as could be short and, if balanced showing either 13-15 or 19-20. We are not alerting the 1NT rebid.

An experienced and good player questioned me on this yesterday.

1 - 1 - 1NT = 13-15, Alertable?

Yes, alert it because players otherwise will not be expecting 15 HCP in that bucket.
No, no alert required.
