The Certified Automotive Tire Service (ATS) Program is a 300 and 400-level certification that provides in-depth and comprehensive instruction on the recommended procedures for servicing modern automobiles and light trucks. Certified ATS is designed for the professional passenger and light truck tire technician so the subjects range from the relationship between torque and clamping force to the TPMS relearn and diagnostic procedures on domestic and import vehicles.
