TIA Adds Fifth CTS Instructor Training Course
BOWIE, Md. – The Tire Industry Association (TIA) has added a fifth Commercial Tire Service (CTS) Instructor Training and Certification Course to its training offerings for 2020. The new class, in Louisville, Ky., will take place June 2-5.
The 400-level certified instructor training course covers all aspects of commercial tire service including OSHA standards, mounting/demounting, wheel installation and torque, road service, balance and repair. Students passing the course will be certified to instruct TIA’s 300-Level Certified Technician Course in the field.
In addition to Louisville, TIA is offering CTS instructor training courses in Baltimore, Feb. 4-7 and Nov. 17-20, and Denver April 14-17 and Aug. 18-21.
Classes begin at 1:00 p.m. EST on the first day. However, students with fewer than two years of experience servicing truck tires can sign up for an early session that morning, from 8:00 a.m. – noon, where they will physically mount and demount a tire and install and remove a wheel assembly from a truck using impact and torque wrenches.
