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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
More information is available on TIA’s website or by calling 800-876-8372.
When is the last time you attended one of the national tire industry trade shows, such as SEMA, ITEC or the North American Tire & Retread Expo?
|I try and take in at least one show a year.||
|I usually attend one every few years.||
|There are so many tire maker and distributor meetings each year, I don’t see a need to attend one of the national shows.||
|I don’t find value in these shows and haven’t been to one in years.||
|I’d like to but I am too busy||
