TIA's ATS Class Heads to Houston
The Tire Industry Association (TIA) has announced a December 2016 date for its Certified Automotive Tire Service (ATS) Advanced Instructor Training Class to take place in the Houston area.
The course will be held Dec. 6-9, 2016, at San Jacinto College Central in La Porte, Texas.
The Certified ATS Instructor Program is a 4-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.
