MONCTON, N.B. (May 2, 2014) — The Tire Industry Association (TIA) has scheduled a stop on its 2014 Certified Automotive Training Service (ATS) Instructor Training Tour for Moncton.
The ATS training dates will be Aug. 19-22 at New Brunswick Community College in Moncton, TIA said.
TIA’s Certified ATS Instructor Program is a four-day, in-depth classroom and hands-on training class that industry professionals must successfully complete in order to train technicians for ATS certification in their workplaces.
This “train-the-trainer” approach has resulted in more than 85,000 technicians trained and/or certified for ATS service since 1997, according to TIA.
The class includes step-by-step procedures for all aspects of passenger and light truck tire service, as well as a full day of instruction on tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS).
Titan International and the United Steelworkers union have petitioned the U.S. International Trade Commission and U.S. Department of Commerce seeking relief from OTR tire imports from China, India and Sri Lanka. What’s your opinion?
|I wholeheartedly support their action – something needs to be done.||
|I think it’s a bad idea that could inevitably tie the hands of domestic tire makers.||
|I oppose any duties against tire importers—they only raise costs for distributors and make it harder to obtain inventory.||
|I’m kind of on the fence and not sure what’s right, but need more information before deciding.||
|I don’t really care whether or not relief is granted.||
