Titan Will Host TIA Farm Tire Service Training for Associate Dealers

Posted on July 13, 2017

Titan International Inc. will host Tire Industry Association (TIA) advanced hands-on farm tire service training sessions for participants in its Strong Seller associate dealer program.

Associate dealers can take part in either of two upcoming TIA farm tire service training sessions in Boone, Iowa. The three-day sessions will take place on July 25-27 and August 1-3, 2017.

“We’re continuing to invest in our associate dealer program by adding marketing and training support opportunities. A big part of that is making sure our dealer technicians stay safe on the job,” says Paul Hawkins, vice president, aftermarket sales at Titan.

“That’s why we’re partnering with TIA -- to ensure our dealers have access to the industry’s best safety training, and our customers who run Titan and Goodyear Farm Tires can expect the best service from our dealer network.”

The three-day sessions will include a mix of classroom and hands-on training with a tractor and service truck, covering everything from mounting and demounting to ballasting and hydraulic tool operation. The session will conclude with a written test, and those who pass will receive a certificate of course completion.

To learn more about the Titan associate dealer program or to enroll in one of the upcoming TIA training sessions, contact Brice Howell at 515-322-3551 or
