The Tire Industry Association (TIA) has added dates for two more Automotive Tire Service (ATS) Advanced Instructor classes in 2017. One is scheduled for Feb. 28-March 3 in Charlotte, N.C., and the other for June 20-23 in Baltimore, Md.
Using a train-the-trainer approach, the 4-day in-depth classroom and hands-on class gives industry professionals the training they need to return to their dealership to train technicians for certification preparation.
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. Additionally, the class offers a full day of instruction on Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS).
