Recommended Preparation: AUTO 100
Basic Automotive Tire Service (ATS) is a Tire Industry Association (TIA) 200-level minimum skills training and certificate program that outlines and explains the guidelines for servicing passenger and light truck tire and wheel assemblies. It includes the step-by-step procedures for: lifting the vehicle; removing the assembly; demounting, mounting and inflating; balancing; tire repair; and wheel installation. Basic ATS places special emphasis on the relationship between torque and clamping force so technicians have a thorough understanding of the necessary steps to ensure wheel retention on steel and aluminum wheels. Advanced Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS) is a 250-level TIA program that focuses on the manufacturer-specific requirements for the most popular domestic and import vehicle/sensor manufacturers.
