The Tire Industry Association (TIA) has added special demonstrations and information of TIA’s popular training programs to TIA’s booth (#40057) at the 2012 Global Tire Expo – Powered by TIA at the SEMA show.

The Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show takes place Oct. 30-Nov. 2, 2012, in Las Vegas, Nev.

This year’s booth will afford attendees the opportunity to get a special preview of newly inaugurated programs, including TIA Online University, the newly created Commercial Tire Service (CTS) Spanish Program, and the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) Relearn Chart.

TIA says that as the industry leader in tire technician training and certification, it now offers all of its Basic Level Training Series in a convenient and accessible format on the TIA Online University.

Technicians can access the most comprehensive, up-to-date tire service training anywhere there is an Internet connection. TIA’s Basic Level training is designed for new hires as part of their orientation, and it can also be used for experienced technicians in need of documented training.

The Spanish translation of the CTS program is designed for the 300-Level Certified Technician series for experienced employees and the 200-Level Basic program for new hires and employees in need of training mandated by Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Regulation 29 CFR 1901.177.

The TPMS Relearn Chart covers multiple aspects of TPMS service, including when the relearn procedure is necessary. It includes the OEM sensor part number, the sensor part and service pack numbers for Schrader, Dill, Myers Tire Supply, 31 Inc. Xtra-Seal, and NAPA.

It also includes the sensor numbers for Orange Electronics and Oro-Tek. The chart provides a comprehensive list of relearn summaries for all makes and models, both foreign and domestic.
