The courses will focus on facilities planning and design, grain quality management, drying and receiving and run Sept. 11 through Oct. 13. Registration closes Sept. 5.
This course covers the key factors and information needed to build new facilities or modernize existing structures. Lectures cover facility types and capacities, storage structures, equipment, layouts and site selection. At the end of the course, participants will lay out a simple facility.
This course qualifies toward the Credential in Grain Operations Management (CGOM).
This course is a resource for anyone responsible for grain quality, including those who work with storing and conditioning, aerating, drying, pest control or mycotoxin management. Participants learn about quality control and measurement methods, and international grain-grading standards.
This course qualifies toward both the Credential in Grain Operations Management (CGOM) and the Credential in Grain Processing Management (CGPM).
This course gives an overview of grain drying and its effects on end-use quality, capacity and energy efficiency. It will show participants different dryer types and how they are used for specific grains. By the end of the course, participants should be able to take strategies and measurement methods from the course and use them to measure grain quality and energy efficiency in their facilities.
This course qualifies toward the Specialist in Grain Quality Management, an extension of the Credential in Grain Operations Management (CGOM).
Learn the basic principles of milling by covering each step of the milling processing in detail. The first half of the course covers grain receiving, handling, storage and blending. The second half of the course focuses on grain separation and cleaning, and the differences between grain conditioning and tempering. This course will help students identify the equipment used in the milling process and apply that knowledge in practical situations.
This course qualifies toward the Credential in Grain Processing Management (CGPM).
