Posted on April 8, 2014

The Tire Industry Association (TIA) has announced dates for a second hands-on Basic Farm Tire Service (FTS) training class. The class, sponsored by Becker Tire Treading & Automotive Service, will be held Aug. 4-6, 2014, in Great Bend, Kan., from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. each day.

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.

Participants will learn step-by-step procedures for demounting, mounting and inflating, single, duel and three-piece assemblies in addition to service truck operation and liquid ballast installation/removal.

"We recently announced a hands-on FTS class in Nebraska and there has been great interest so we are excited to add a class in Kansas so we can reach even more technicians," said TIA Director of Training Chris Hoogenboom.

Tuition is $495 for one or two attendees. Companies sending 3 or more participants will receive a discounted rate of $445 per student. Attendees who successfully complete the three-day class will receive a Certificate of Completion.
