The Certified CTS Program covers all aspects of commercial tire service including OSHA standards, mounting/demounting, wheel installation and torque, road service, balance and repair. Students will physically mount and demount a tire, as well as install and remove a wheel assembly from the truck using impact and torque wrenches.

Classes begin at 1 pm EST on the first day. However, if the attendee has less than two years of experience servicing truck tires, he or she can sign up for the early session on Tuesday from 8 am to noon.
