TIA will hold five in-person Advanced Hands-On Earthmover Tire Service training classes this year.

The Tire Industry Association (TIA) will host five in-person Advanced Hands-On Earthmover Tire Service training classes in 2022.

 The first will take place April 23-15 in Brooksville, Fla.

Targeted at earthmover tire technicians, the class offers comprehensive hands-on training using a service truck, hydraulic tools and a variety of equipment that can aid technicians in servicing tires. Topics covered include service truck operation, preventative maintenance training, site preparation and equipment, hydraulic tool operation and maintenance and more.

“Earthmover and OTR tire service requires a higher level of skill to operate the hydraulic tools, cranes and tire handlers, so hands-on training is always going to be the most effective for technicians in this segment of the industry,” notes Kevin Rohlwing, TIA’s senior vice president of training. “TIA is fortunate to have supplier and manufacturer partners that support our educational efforts to make sure technicians are aware of the safety procedures and guidelines that must be followed to protect themselves from a serious or fatal injury.”
