You'd have to show a lot of aptitude for the position, and most likely can't have held a TM position at the store in question... TPS is a good entry level AP position to get your foot in the door... I've seen our diferent TPS advance to stuff like Sr.TPS, IS, and so forth
You most likely will have to switch stores, when I interviewed for TPS, I did really well on my interview, but they didn't want to place me at our store, but said they could set me up at a different store.
I would be more willing to answer your question, if you had put a little more detail into it.
Here is a job description..
