TIA Announces Commercial Tire Service Technician Training Class

(Bowie, MD - March 6, 2017) – The Tire Industry Association (TIA), a leader in tire safety, will offer a 300 Level Certified Commercial Tire Service (CTS) Tech course that is ideal for the training and certification of dealer and fleet technicians, who are in need of OSHA compliance training. Classes will be held in Louisville, KY on April 20th-21st and April 27th-28th from 8:00am – 5:00pm each day.

The CTS Tech Course is designed for experienced employees with at least one year of hands-on experience. In addition to successful completion of the final exam, students must show proficiency in the shop by demonstrating the ability to perform various skills. After successful completion of the course, each student will receive:

  • An official TIA Certificate of Completion
  • 13 uniform patches
  • 2-year subscription to the bi-monthly subscription, Commercial Tire Service Today

“We are excited to offer this Certified Tech course, as we typically only offer 400 Level Certified Instructor courses.” said Christine Hoogenboom, director of training for the Tire Industry Association. “Our goal is to reach dealers or fleets that only have a small number of techs that need to be Certified and don’t have the resources to first send someone to a week-long class to become an Instructor.”

TIA plans to offer another round of CTS Tech classes in Chicago later in the year, and possibly hold a CTS Tech Training Tour in 2018 visiting cities all over the US.

Tuition is $395 for up to 2 attendees and $345 for 3 attendees or more. To download a registration form, please visit https://www.tireindustry.org/training. For class information please contact Christine Hoogenboom at choogenboom@tireindustry.org or 1.800.876.8372 x 106.
