BOWIE, Md. — The Tire Industry Association (TIA) is offering its Basic Industrial Tire Service (ITS) training module through its online training portal — TIA Online University.
The basic level training is designed for all new hires as part of their orientation and for experienced technicians in need of documented training.
The Basic ITS Course, produced in 2015, focuses on pneumatic, solid resilient, press-on and polyurethane-filled tires used in industrial applications.
TIA Online University offers technicians the option to study at their own pace and provides a more efficient and cost-effective method for training new hires, TIA said.
The self-study modules include video learning, knowledge checks, final exams and a skills demonstration form.
"Our Online University has been an effective tool in the delivery and availability of our training programs," said Kevin Rohlwing, senior vice president of training.
"Since 2012, we have trained over 20,000 online users and look forward to expanding our reach with the launch of our newest ITS course."
All of TIA's Basic Level programs are available through the TIA Online University and cover tire service for the automotive, TPMS, commercial, earthmover, farm and industrial industries for a flat annual fee per location.
