Bridgestone Mining Solutions Australia Pty Ltd (BMSA) are pleased to announce the inaugural National Tyre Fitting Training Program based at the recently opened Hunter Valley Mining Solutions Centre

Bridgestone Mining Solutions Australia Pty Ltd (BMSA) are pleased to announce the inaugural National Tyre Fitting Training Program based at the recently opened Hunter Valley Mining Solutions Centre. BMSA continues to be a leading service provider in the tyre industry and this training program provides the opportunity to educate individuals who are pursuing a career in the OTR tyre industry at an entry level. The comprehensive package being offered will provide the skills required to work at the highest industry standard and will be achieved through our experienced trainers sharing their knowledge and skills to assist in tyre fitter development to the safest level.

The first intense 6 week program commenced on the 6th May 2019 with a second program to be run later in the year and 3 to 4 programs expected to be run in 2020. The program participants will be new to the tyre fitting industry and therefore require additional time and resources to learn the fundamentals of tyre fitting, extensive knowledge of BMSA products and services along with industry best practices from experienced tyre fitters.

 BMSA is a Registered Training Organisation which provides National Accredited Training. The formal qualifications obtained are industry recognised and demonstrate BMSA’s commitment to the national standard when training. Modules in the National Tyre Fitting Program include:

·       Workplace Health and Safety (WHS) and Environment

·       “Bridgestone Essence” and “Our Way to Serve”

·       9 core Training Units - Certificate II Surface Extractions

·       Rim and Wheel training

·       Truck and Bus tyres

·       Forklift accreditation

·       Use of power and hand held tools

Additionally, BMSA offers training services to our customers improving their knowledge of Tyre Management to maximise tyre life and a reduction in their Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). From 2020 there will be an increase in the courses run by BMSA to further invest and upskill our workforce through Procedural and Systems Training and Leadership and Technical Training courses.
