This is the highest level of certification in the off-the-road (OTR)/earthmover tire industry with a rigorous examination process, McCarthy Tire says. In addition to an extensive written test, the practical test requires a passing score of 100%. To date, there are only 28 Level 400 instructors in the world.

“This is a remarkable accomplishment,” says John D. McCarthy Jr., president of McCarthy Tire Service. “Safety is our first goal in everything we do, and training is key. We are very proud that our safety department now has two elite Level 400 ETS Instructors.”

Opinsky is responsible for new hire and refresher training for the OTR and commercial truck service operations in McCarthy Tire’s southern region of Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina. He has 41 years of experience in OTR and commercial truck service, including the last 13 years with McCarthy Tire Service.
