TIA releases details for ATS class in Seattle

Feb. 27, 2015

The Tire Industry Association (TIA) has announced the date for its Certified Automotive Training Service (ATS) Instructor Class to be held in Seattle. The course will be held Oct. 13-16, 2015, at Green River Community College, 12401 SE 320th St., Auburn, Wash.

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 a dealership to train technicians to prepare them for certification. TIA has used the train-the-trainer approach to train and/or certify more than 93,000 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.
