May 8-11: Los Angeles - City of Long Beach Municipal Training Facility in Long Beach, Calif.

TIA says it has used the train-the-trainer approach to train and/or certify more than 70,000 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.
