Order Reprints

The Tire Industry Association (TIA) has announced its 2009 winter/spring dates for the Automotive Tire Service (ATS) and Commercial Tire Service (CTS) Certified Instructor programs.   

The ATS program combines in-depth classroom instruction with comprehensive, hands-on education. Students who successfully complete the program are prepared to return to their companies and impart that knowledge to their fellow employees by conducting in-house Certified ATS Technician or Instructor classes.   

The CTS program utilizes classroom instruction with hands-on learning and meets the requirements laid out by OSHA Standard 29 CFR 1910.177. Students who successfully complete the CTS Instructor program are qualified to certify technicians in the field, TIA says.    

“The TIA CTS and ATS Instructor Programs continue to prove that there is a great demand for training in the industry," says Roy Littlefield, TIA’s Executive Vice President. “We’re excited to see the number of ATS and CTS trained technicians and instructors continue to grow and the industry recognizing the investment training and education can be.”   The scheduled dates for winter/spring 2009 are:
