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.
