The Tire Industry Association (TIA) has announced it will offer its last in-person, 400-level certified Commercial Tire Service (CTS) Instructor training class of 2023 on Dec. 5-8 in Brooksville, Fla.
The four-day CTS Instructor class is compliant with The Occupational Safety and Health Administration Standard (OHSA)29 CFR 1910.177 and covers all aspects of medium/heavy truck tire service. The class also teaches attendees how to instruct a 300-level Certified Technician Course in the field.
The coursework consists of 18 modules, including OHSA requirements, wheel service and torque, single-piece and multi-piece rim demounting, mounting and inflation and more.
An optional early session on the first day will be offered where students with less than two years of experience servicing truck tires will physically mount and demount a tire and install and remove a wheel assembly from a commercial truck using impact and torque wrenches.
Students who pass the course will receive a certificate and 13 uniform patches. Recertification is required every two years via an online exam.
Course tuition is $950 and does not include hotel accommodations.
