The Tire Industry Association (TIA) will hold four Commercial Tire Service (CTS) Instructor Training and Certification courses in Baltimore, Md., and Denver, Colo., in 2020.

The 400-level certified CTS training courses cover all aspects of commercial tire service, including OSHA standards, mounting/demounting, wheel installation and torque, road service, balance and repair.

"Students passing the course will be certified to instruct TIA’s 300-Level Certified Technician Course in the field," say TIA officials.

The training courses for Baltimore will be held Feb. 4-7 and Nov. 17-20. The classes in Denver are scheduled for April 14-17 and Aug. 18-21.

"Classes begin at 1:00 p.m. EST on the first day. However, students with fewer than two years of experience servicing truck tires can sign up for an early session that morning, from 8:00 a.m. to noon, where they will physically mount and demount a tire and install and remove a wheel assembly from a truck using impact and torque wrenches"
