Welcome to the CTI-WTI class schedule page. Below you’ll find a list of all classroom or webinar events scheduled currently. While the list is long this is a good place to view the variety of content available. Here’s a tip. You can sort any column by clicking or tapping on the column header. For example if you are looking for a specific course number, click the ID/Title column which causes the course id’s to sort alphabetically making it easier to scroll through the courses. Or if you are traveling and want to see what’s available tonight, select the date column to find everything scheduled. However the best practice to pinpoint your search, go back to the home page and select your search criteria in the left section titled ‘Classes Near You’ and you’ll see the events that fit your specific needs listed. If at any time you have questions regarding a schedule or event or want to see a topic taught in your market, please don’t hesitate to reach out via email to service@advance-auto.com. To register for a class please visit with your local Advance, CARQUEST or WorldPac representative or search for Education in your online parts ordering system such as Advance Pro, Speed Dial or WebLink and add the training product that fits your needs to your shopping cart.
