TIA Partners with Today’s Class on New Training App

BOWIE, Md. – In pursuit of its continuing commitment to training and development, the Tire Industry Association (TIA) has announced a partnership with adaptive learning company Today’s Class. This mobile training platform uses artificial intelligence to identify and eliminate knowledge gaps by delivering TIA-approved training in 5-minute daily sessions.

Available on any device, the Today’s Class adaptive learning application increases knowledge retention for technicians who have completed a TIA 200- or 300-Level Course.

“There’s a synergy between TIA and Today’s Class in that their app is a natural extension of the industry-leading training that TIA has offered for almost 25 years,” said Christine Hoogenboom, TIA’s director of training.  “We want techs to walk away from a TIA class with the knowledge and confidence to safely do their job. Today’s Class platform reinforces that knowledge in an engaging and effective way, significantly increasing techs’ retention levels. We’re excited to introduce this to our members and to the industry.”

The initial TIA offering will focus on Commercial Tire Service (CTS) training, specifically supporting Wheels, Tires, RIST (remove, inspect, snug and torque), Jacking/Lifting and Mount/Demount.  Additional content covering Automotive Tire Service (ATS) training is planned for incremental release over the course of 2021.

“We are proud to partner with TIA in support of its ongoing commitment to technician training,” said Ron Shanas, Today’s Class vice president of strategic planning. “As transport technology relentlessly evolves, investment in technician training and development is increasingly critical. Today’s Class exists to uniquely meet this need.”
