GREAT BEND, Kan. (April 9, 2014) — The Tire Industry Association (TIA) has scheduled a hands-on Basic Farm Tire Service (FTS) training class in Great Bend Aug. 4-6.

Basic FTS 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 TIA. Participants will learn step-by-step procedures for demounting, mounting and inflating single, dual and three-piece wheel assemblies.

Service truck operation and liquid ballast installation and removal are also on the agenda.
