BOWIE, Md. — The Tire Industry Association (TIA) is offering its last in-person 400-Level Certified Commercial Tire Service (CTS) Instructor training class of the year, set for Dec. 5-8 in Brooksville, Fla.
The four-day class — fully compliant with OSHA Standard 29 CFR 1910.177. — covers all aspects of medium/heavy truck tire service and teaches attendees how to instruct a 300-Level Certified Technician Course in the field.
The course consists of 18 modules, including OSHA requirements, wheel service and torque, single-piece, and multi-piece rim demounting, mounting and inflation, charts and tables.
An optional early session will be offered to allow students with fewer than two years of experience servicing truck tires to physically mount and demount a tire, as well as install and remove a wheel assembly from a commercial truck using impact and torque wrenches. There is no additional charge for this session.
Those who successfully pass the course will receive a certificate and 13 uniform patches. Recertification is required every two years through an online exam.
Course tuition is $950 and does not include hotel accommodations.
