The Tire Industry Association’s Industrial Tire Service (ITS) Program, released earlier this year, has won two Telly Awards in the Safety and How-To/Instructional categories.
The Telly Awards honor outstanding local, regional and cable TV commercials and programs; video and film productions; and online commercials, video and films. The ITS Program training video was developed with the cooperation of Camoplast Solideal, which is now known as Camso. The company provided technical assistance and the facility for most of the filming.
“The ITS Program completes the initial series of educational resources for the industry,” said Glen Nicholson, TIA president. “Now that we have programs for automotive, commercial, earthmover, farm and industrial tire service, our members have access to the most comprehensive and advanced training in the world.”
ITS is a 200-level basic training program and is available in the traditional video/workbook format; it eventually will be available through TIA’s On-Line University. It addresses the step-by-step procedures and industry guidelines for servicing different types of industrial tires including pneumatic, solid/resilient, press-on and polyurethane fill.
