ATA to launch TPMS Training

By Graham Conrad

Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems is the single most important change to the Automotive Industry since Fuel Injection. Every vehicle made after September 1, 2007 in the USA will be equipped with TPMS. Consequently, Automotive Service & Repair Providers both mechanical and Auto Body will have to learn the new procedures and practices related to installing, changing or rotating tires or suffer the extremely expensive costs that will result if mistakes are made.

TPMS training in progress.

For this reason, the Automotive Trades Association has engaged Mr. David Giles, Nationally Accredited Automotive Industry Trainer and well known to the Atlantic Canada Automotive Industry, to deliver high level training on this very important new technology. Mr. Giles will bring his TPMS training to nine locations throughout Nova Scotia. This is not a tire course, instead, it is hands on training and the only course needed to learn the necessary skills to deal with Tire Pressure Monitoring.

TPMS training schedule:

Location Date
HRM Tuesday, October 16
Bridgewater Wednesday, October 17
Yarmouth Thursday, October 18
Sydney Tuesday, November 20
Cheticamp Wednesday, November 21
Antigonish Thursday, November 22
Coldbrook Tuesday, October 23
Truro Wednesday, November 28

Each course is 3 hours from 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm and the cost is $85.00 per person. ATA members pay $60.00 per person. Automotive Service Technicians and Auto Body repairers will find this training beneficial. Further details can be obtained from the ATA by calling 902-466-7516.
