Certified Commercial Tire Service (CTS) is designed for experienced employees with at least two years 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 that must be witnessed and signed off on. Each student who successfully passes the course receives a Certificate and 13 Uniform Patches. Recertification is required every two years via an online exam. Certified 300 Level Technician courses must be conducted by a TIA 400 Level Instructor. These train-the-trainer classes are held throughout the US each year in several cities.
