TIA’s Advanced Farm Tire Service training to take place in June

The training class for technicians in the agricultural and farm tire industries is set to take place June 11-14.

The Tire Industry Association‘s (TIA) upcoming Advanced Farm Tire Service (FTS) training class for technicians in the agricultural and farm tire industries is set to take place June 11-14 at Stellar Industries in Garner, IA. TIA said its Advanced FTS Training program provides technicians with hands-on instruction and classroom knowledge of the farm tire industry.

According to TIA, the curriculum will cover a range of topics, including:

  • Service truck operation: Hands-on training for operating service trucks equipped with essential tools in farm tire service operations;
  • Site preparation and equipment lifting: Techniques for site preparation and safe lifting practices to facilitate tire servicing in various agricultural settings;
  • Hydraulic tool operation and maintenance: Practical instruction on the operation and maintenance of hydraulic tools commonly used in farm and agricultural tire service;
  • Demounting, mounting and inflating techniques: Training on demounting, mounting and inflating single-piece, dual and three-piece tires;
  • Liquid ballast installation and removal: Instruction on the proper installation and removal of liquid ballast in farm tires.

“We are incredibly fortunate to have a partner in Stellar Industries to host this class,” Kevin Rohlwing, TIA’s chief technical officer, said. “With the classroom space, service trucks and equipment on-site, we can deliver a hands-on experience that improves technician performance after the class. When you explain the risks in person and then show them how to service farm tires safely, it has a positive effect on safety.”
