TIA Announces ATS Training Tour Date in Chicago

Bowie, Md. – The Tire Industry Association (TIA) has announced a date for its Certified Automotive Training Service (ATS) Instructor Class to take place in the Chicago area. The course will be held October 18-21, 2016 at Joliet Junior College in Joliet, Ill.

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 100,000 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.
