TIA Announces New Automotive Tire Services Classes
May 15, 2017―The Tire Industry Association (TIA) has announced that the two locations for the certified Automotive Tire Service (ATS) training program will be held in the Seattle area in September and in Sarasota, Fla., in December.
The ATS training program is a four-day classroom and hands-on course that industry professionals must successfully complete in order to be certified as Advanced ATS Instructors. Once certified, instructors will be able to train and certify technicians in the field and other ATS Instructors. The ATS training program 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. It also includes a full day of instruction on Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS), so technicians have a thorough understanding of the requirements for the most popular domestic and import vehicles.
