TIA adds ATS training tour date

Posted on May 2, 2014

The Tire Industry Association (TIA) has added a tour date to its 2014 Certified Automotive Training Service (ATS) Instructor Training Tour in New Brunswick, Canada.

The class will be held August 19-22, 2014, at New Brunswick Community College, 1234 Mountain Road, Moncton, New Brunswick.

The Certified ATS Instructor Program is a four-day in-depth classroom and hands-on class that industry professionals must successfully complete in order to return to the dealership(s) to train technicians to prepare them for certification. TIA has used the train-the-trainer approach to train and/or certify more than 85,000 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. 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.

To register, visit www.tireindustry.org. For information, contact Chris Hoogenboom, director of training, at choogenboom@tireindustry.org or (800) 876-8372, ext. 106.
