The Certified ATS program is a 300- and 400-level certification that provides in-depth, comprehensive instruction on recommended procedures for servicing modern automobiles and light trucks.

Certified ATS is designed for the professional passenger and light truck tire technician, according to TIA officials. Topics range from the relationship between torque and clamping force to tire pressure monitoring system relearn and diagnostic procedures on domestic and import vehicles.

The Certified ATS program also includes an exclusive module on tire conditions analysis that uses images from TIA’s Passenger and Light Truck Tire Conditions Manual to educate technicians on the most likely reasons for common irregular treadwear patterns.

"Schrader has long been a huge supporter of proper traning and education," says W. Rippetoe, technical training team leader and certified TIA advanced instructor. "We share this passion and mission with TIA. Schrader has put our entire aftermarket team through the TIA ATS certification process."
