The Tire Industry Association has a new training program – Basic Industrial Tire Service (ITS) Program. The 200-level training and certificate program is focused on pneumatic, solid resilient, press-on and polyurethane-filled tires, TIA said.
“Industrial tires pose specific risks for employees, so there is a definite need for a training program that identifies the hazards and outlines the step-by-step procedures for servicing these assemblies,” said Kevin Rohlwing, TIA senior vice president of training.
The the Basic ITS Kit is $295 for members and $600 for non-members and includes the Instructor’s Guide, DVD and one student workbook, TIA said. Additional student workbooks can be purchased for $55 each for members and $85 non-members.
The Basic ITS program will also be available on the association’s online university by the end of 2015, TIA said.
