Comments Email

BOWIE, Md. (April 24, 2014) — The Tire Industry Association (TIA), with the Western Canada Tire Dealers Association (WCTDA), will hold a three-day Commercial Tire Service (CTS) 400 Level Instructor Training and Certification Class in Edmonton, Alberta.

The class will run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. May 6-8.

TIA said its Certified CTS Instructor Program exceeds the minimum training requirements established by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and includes all aspects

of truck tire and wheel service. That includes OSHA regulations; mounting/demounting/inflation; torque; puncture repair; balancing; road service; and more.

The CTS Instructor Course is based on a train-the-trainer model that combines classroom and hands-on demonstrations, giving students “the tools and knowledge they will need to impart that information on their tire service technicians,” TIA said.

For registration information, contact the WCTDA’s Andy Nagy at 403-264-3179 or via email at andy@wctda.ca.

More information is available on TIA’s website or by calling 800-876-8372.
