The Tire Industry Association (TIA) is offering its Certified Automotive Training Service (ATS) Instructor Class in October in Cincinnati, Ohio.

The course will be held Oct. 6-9, 2015, at Cincinnati State Technical and Community College, 3520 Central Parkway, Cincinnati.

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 to train technicians to prepare them for certification. TIA has used the train-the-trainer approach to train and/or certify more than 95,000 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.
