Posted on May 13, 2014

The Tire Industry Association (TIA) has added San Francisco and Pittsburgh to its 2014 Certified Automotive Training Service (ATS) Instructor Training Tour.

The latest tour dates and locations are:

July 8-11, Skyline College, 3300 College Drive, San Bruno, Calif., 94066; and

July 8-11, Community College of Alleghany County, West Hills Center, 1000 McKee Road, Oakdale, Pa., 15071.

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).
