TIA Announces 2016 Commercial Tire Service Instructor Training Schedule
Dec. 16, 2015—The Tire Industry Association (TIA) has announced the schedule for the 2016 Certified Commercial Tire Service (CTS) Instructor Training and Certification Classes in Baltimore and Denver.
TIA’s Certified CTS Instructor Program exceeds the minimum training requirements established by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and includes all aspects of truck tire and wheel service. THE CTS Instructor Course uses a train-the-trainer model and combines classroom and hands-on demonstrations.
"Our train-the-trainer model gives dealers the flexibility to train one employee and then have that employee hold training classes for others at a time when it is most convenient. They can comply with OSHA regulations and establish a qualified workforce without the expense of extensive travel," said Kevin Rohlwing, TIA senior vice president of training.
TIA offers both a four-day and a three-day program. Participants with less than two years of hands-on commercial truck experience must register for the four-day class.
Baltimore classes are held at the Community College of Baltimore County in Catonsville, Md. and Denver classes are held at Lincoln College of Technology in Aurora, Co.
The 2016 CTS Instructor Training schedule is as follows:
- March 9 - 11
- May 18 - 20
- October 19 - 21
- April 6 - 8
