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.

Registration forms for the FTS class may be found on TIA's website.www.tireindustry.org For further information, contact Chris Hoogenboom via email at choogenboom@tireindustry.org or call 800-876-8372 ext. 106.
