Order Reprints

The deadline to reserve a hotel room for the Tire Industry Association (TIA)’s Automotive Tire Service (ATS) Advanced Instructor Training Course for women only is Sept. 21, and the deadline to register for the class is Sept. 21, 2016. The class will be held Oct. 4-7 in Denver.

This will be the second time TIA has held a training course specifically for female tire professionals.

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(s) to train technicians to prepare them for certification. TIA has used the train-the-trainer approach to train and/or certify more than 100,000 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.
