This course leads to a certification that is required by regulation in Ontario for any person who removes or replaces wheels on trucks, trailers and motor coaches. Successful participants who complete this modular training program will obtain a certificate from the Ministry of Training, College and Universities. Certification can be obtained at 4 different levels. This course is based on the training handbook “Practical Tire & Wheel Service”.
Why this is important
Improper tire and wheel service procedures can cause serious, even fatal injuries. Tire and wheel assemblies have the potential to explode. Improperly installed wheel assemblies can become detached from a vehicle while it is travelling on a road or highway, and become a serious safety threat to other motorists, or even pedestrians.
Who should take the course
Any person involved in servicing tires or wheels on trucks, trailer and buses is required to become certified through this training course. Persons who are not certified are acting unlawfully if they perform this work without first being certified. Tire service personnel, drivers and technicians, along with their supervisors and managers need to attend.
What’s in the course
The certification training program consists of 17 learning modules and allows individuals to become certified at one of four different levels. These levels are based on the specific needs of the individual and based on the job tasks each person is required to perform.
