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

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.

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).
