TIA Announces ATS Training Course Dates in Tallahassee

Bowie, Md. – The Tire Industry Association (TIA) has announced that it will host a Certified Automotive Training Service (ATS) Advanced Instructor Training Course in Tallahassee, Florida as part of its 2014 Training Tour. The program will be held October 7-10, 2014 at Leon County Schools, 2757 W. Pensacola Street, Tallahassee.

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 85,000 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.
