The Tire Industry Association (TIA) will host a Certified Automotive Training Service (ATS) advanced instructor training course in Tallahassee, Fla. The program is scheduled for Oct. 7-10.

The advanced course is part of TIA’s 2014 ATS 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 prepare technicians 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).
