AUTOMOTIVE TIRE SERVICE
Finally, what the industry has been waiting for . . .
web-based training for your technicians!
ATS-400 Certified ATS Instructor Programs
TIA's newest training and certification program is directed to technicians working in a typical retail tire dealership. The Certified ATS Instructor seminar is divided into 3-day and 4-day classes. Students that successfully complete the 3-day program become TIA Certified ATS Instructors and receive the credentials to train and certify technicians in the field. Students that successfully complete the 4-day program become TIA Certified Advanced ATS Instructors and receive the credentials to train and certify technicians and instructors in the field.
Both programs begin on Tuesday morning. The 3-day students depart on Thursday and the 4-day students depart on Friday. Both Certified ATS Instructor Programs involve extensive hands-on training, so students must demonstrate proficiency in the shop before they are allowed to take the Certification Exam. Classroom instruction covers a wide variety of subjects including:
- Tire Construction
- Sidewall Information
- Vehicle Lifting Procedures
- Tire/Wheel Assembly Removal
- Tire Rotation Guidelines
- Tire/Wheel Assembly Installation
- Fastener Torque Guidelines & Procedures
- Demounting/Mounting & Inflation
