TIA: Sign Up for Hands-On Earthmover and Farm Tire Service Training

Posted on December 1, 2016

The Tire Industry Association (TIA) will offer advanced hands-on training for technicians in the earthmover and farm tire service industries in 2017 in Florida and Iowa.

The classes are designed to provide additional education for those that have completed the TIA Basic ETS (earthmover tire service) and Basic FTS (farm tire service) courses. 

The earthmover tire service classes are scheduled for:

  • April 18-20 at AME International, Brooksville, Fla.;
  • August 8-10 at Stellar Industries, Garner, Iowa; and
  • Sept. 12-14 at Stellar Industries, Garner, Iowa.

The farm tire service classes will be:

  • January 17-19 at AME International, Brooksville, Fla.;
  • June 12-15 at Stellar Industries, Garner, Iowa; and
  • July 11-13 at Stellar Industries, Garner, Iowa.

TIA says the classes are being provided with support from AME International, Stellar Industries and Tire Life. Students will receive comprehensive hands-on training using a service truck and hydraulic tools. They will learn and demonstrate the proper procedures for using common tools and equipment in the tire and wheel service industry.

Registrants are required to complete the TIA Basic Level ETS or FTS courses as a prerequisite before attending these hands-on classes.

"Nothing replaces hands-on instruction in the farm and earthmover tire service industries, so these classes are a direct response to the demand from our members to provide these unique training classes," says Kevin Rohlwing, TIA senior vice president of training.

"While classroom instruction and a written examination is necessary in most instances, these classes are not part of a certification or certificate program so all of the focus is on using the tools and equipment safely and correctly. We are fortunate to have members like AME, Stellar and Tire Life who are willing to host and sponsor these classes."

Tuition is $495 for 1 or 2 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.
