TIA’s Women’s only Automotive Tire Service Class is moving to Denver

Bowie, Md. – The Tire Industry Association (TIA) has announced that its Certified Automotive Tire Service (ATS) Advanced Instructor Training Course for women only, originally scheduled to be held in Phoenix, will now be held in Denver. The Association was recently informed that the training facility in Phoenix is closing. The new location will be Lincoln College of Technologies, a site that TIA uses for its Commercial Tire Services (CTS) courses on a regular basis.

The dates for the course, October 6-9, 2015, remain the same. This will be the first time the Association has held a training course specifically for female tire professionals.

TIA has secured a room block at the Embassy Suites Hotel Denver Stapleton with a discounted room rate of $149/night plus tax. The hotel will provide free shuttle service to and from the airport and to and from the training facility. Reservations may be made by calling 303-375-0400. Attendees should mention TIA to get discounted rate.

The Certified ATS Instructor Program is a 4-day in-depth classroom and hands-on class that industry professionals must successfully complete in order to return to the dealership(s) 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.
