TIA to Hold CTS Instructor Class in Ohio

BOWIE, Md. – The Tire Industry Association (TIA) has three remaining in-person, 400-Level Certified Commercial Tire Service (CTS) Instructor classes in 2022, with the next one scheduled for Sept. 20-23 in Youngstown, Ohio.

Additional classes will take place Oct. 11-14 in Louisville, Ky., and Dec. 6-9 in Brooksville, Fla.

The four-day Certified CTS Instructor class covers all aspects of medium/heavy truck tire service and teaches attendees how to instruct a 300-Level Certified Technician Course in the field. Coursework consists of 18 modules, including OSHA requirements, wheel service and torque, single-piece and multi-piece rim demounting, mounting and inflation, charts and tables.

“In-person instruction is a key component of TIA’s 400-Level instructor certification programs,” said Kevin Rohlwing, TIA Chief Technical Officer. “There are a lot of benefits associated with hands-on instruction and demonstrations.”

An optional early session on the first day will be offered where students with fewer than two years of experience servicing truck tires will physically mount and demount a tire, as well as install and remove a wheel assembly from a commercial truck using impact and torque wrenches. There is no additional charge for this session.

Course tuition is $950. The tuition does not include hotel accommodations.
