MANHATTAN, KANSAS, U.S. — The IGP Institute will offer two expert milling courses — one in English and one in Spanish — for industry professionals that have an extensive milling background.

The English course will be held March 2-6 and the Spanish section will be held March 9-13.

“This course is great for anyone with more than five years of milling experience,” said Jason Watt, Bühler instructor of milling. “The classroom lectures and hands-on activities will help individuals take their milling experience and expertise and fine-tune it.”

Topics to be discussed include, but are not limited to, flow sheet technology, optimum machine adjustment and mill handling, special cleaning systems, tempering of wheat, starch damage and mill pneumatic systems. Participants also will spend time completing practical exercises in the Hal Ross Flour Mill. 

Past course participant, Chris Craft, head miller at Grain Craft in Birmingham, Alabama, U.S., described his experience at the Bühler–KSU Expert Milling course and the valuable knowledge that he gained throughout the course.

“I wanted to advance my knowledge and try to advance in the field where I can look at more detailed operations in the industry,” Craft said. “I was able to ask questions about my own mill and setup and get some insight from the instructors, and they really gave me some ideas and direction to make improvements when I go back.”
