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).
