BOWIE, Md. — The Tire Industry Association (TIA) is returning to in-person training a year after the COVID-19 lockdown began.
The trade group's first hands-on training session will be a three-day Earthmover Tire Service (ETS) training course, set for May 18-20 at Stellar Industries Inc. facilities in Garner, Iowa.
Sessions will run from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day and be taught by Matt White, TIA director of tire service.
"With this class, we are excited to return to in-person tire technician training, which TIA has had to postpone for the past year due to the COVID-19 pandemic," Kevin Rohlwing, TIA senior vice president of training, said.
"The course will offer the chance to practice tire work on TIA's own Cat769C earthmover haul truck."
