Oct. 5, 2015—The Tire Industry Association (TIA) announced on Friday a date for its Certified Automotive Training Service (ATS) Instructor Class in Sarasota, Fla. The course will be held Nov. 10–13 at Suncoast Technical College, which is located at 4748 Beneva Road.

The ATS program includes four-day classroom and hands-on training that industry professionals must successfully complete in order to return to the dealership to train technicians to prepare them for certification. The TIA has used the train-the-trainer approach to train and/or certify over 98,000 technicians since 1997.

Certified ATS includes safety guidelines and step-by-step procedures for all aspects of passenger and light truck tire service including wheel installation with the proper torque and tire repair. The training also includes a full day of instruction on Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS), which gives technicians a thorough understanding of the requirement for the most popular domestic and import vehicles.
