About 2 months ago the job asked for our patch that was going on the rig. It had to be approved. We haven't heard anything since then.

Tiller is usually the ov so if u have the ov your driving the tiller so your answer is yes everyone who is assigned to a truck company will be trained  in house  on driving the tiller and everything else about the job

4 truck is correct. Like 4T said "everyone assigned to a truck company will be trained in house". IMO driving the tiller is the easy part. You train on BI, Hydrant Inspection, procuring the meal & returning from runs. There is always an experienced tiller next you while your in training.  I want you to know the OV position first. That comes from experience, drilling, asking questions on every run & getting into the books. Getting to the box safely is extremely important but that's only half of the run. Knowing what to do when you get there is key to a smooth operation.

What if Someone from the Engine is assigned to The Truck like say someone from 63 is detailed over to 39 and they are assigned the OV will they have to do it ? Is it only the truck that is trained or is the whole house ?

Most times the detail is not given the OV position, the OV/Tillerman is usually a school trained chauffeur although all members may be trained in house, the person driving the rear is compensated with chauffeur pay as is the tractor part driver.

The order says eight tillers have been ordered but eleven are due for replacement. Are three tiller companies going to go to rearmounts or will there be a later add on for the other three?
