GOTHENBURG, Neb. (Feb. 28, 2014) — The Tire Industry Association (TIA) will hold its first hands-on Basic Farm Tire Service (FTS) training class in Gothenburg Aug. 12-14.
Basic Farm Tire Service is a minimum-skills training and certificate program that outlines and explains the guidelines for servicing farm, agriculture and construction tire-and-wheel assemblies, according to the association.
Participants in the FTS class will learn step-by-step procedures for demounting, mounting and inflating single, dual and three-piece assemblies, as well as service truck operations and liquid ballast installation and removal, TIA said.
Each of the three classes will run from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., TIA said. Tuition is $495 each for one or two attendees, $445 each for three or more from one company. Students who successfully complete the training will receive Certificates of Completion, according to the association.

When is the last time you attended one of the national tire industry trade shows, such as SEMA, ITEC or the North American Tire & Retread Expo?
|I try and take in at least one show a year.||
|I usually attend one every few years.||
|There are so many tire maker and distributor meetings each year, I don’t see a need to attend one of the national shows.||
|I don’t find value in these shows and haven’t been to one in years.||
|I’d like to but I am too busy||
