OVERLAND PARK, KANSAS, U.S. — Unit 2 of the new International Association of Operative Millers (IAOM) Correspondence Course in Flour Milling (2010) is now available for purchase, the IAOM announced on Oct. 8.

Developed and reviewed by industry experts, the IAOM Correspondence Course in Flour Milling is comprised of eight units encompassing all aspects of flour milling from wheat cleaning, basic milling principles, storage and grain handling to milled-grain product additives, plant management and mill mechanics. One unit is dedicated to an overview of how to mill other grains.

The units are divided into lessons, with a testing component at the conclusion of each lesson. The testing option is available online or by hard copy (please select your preference when you register). A certificate is issued on the successful completion of each unit, with a diploma issued to the student upon the successful completion of unit 8.
