REMARKS (Click to open)

* The purpose of this training course is to enable people working in the grain handling industry to undergo more advanced training (such as grading, fumigating and grain management training) in the future. In order to meet this aim during this course attention will be given to sampling, sample preparation, weighing and calculation of percentage, determination of moisture, sieving of samples, determination of poisonous seeds, consequences of grain mixing, the importance of cleanliness of the grain working area and deviations to be noted during loading and unloading of grain. Candidates, who mastered these basic concepts and found to be competent during the assessment, will be ready after practical experience to undergo further grading and other training in order to progress in the grain industry. Practical training in the above mentioned fields form part of this training course. The course therefore must take place at a silo.

** This course is handling the importance to maintain or to improve the quality of grain during intake, handling, drying, fumigation and storage by the correct management. The safe storage of grain and oilseeds has much in common, but there are also important differences that should be considered and are also covered during this course. Focus is given to value adding to all grains as well as oil seeds.

Other courses available are sunflower grading, sorghum grading, soybean grading and cultivar identification. Maize and sorghum grading can be done in combination and the same for sunflower and soybean grading. These combinations bring about cost savings.

Candidates are theoretically and practically evaluated and certificates are supplied to successful candidates.

The above schedule may be adjusted according to need. If a need is identified which is not included in the schedule it can be arranged by negotiations.

Tariffs include coffee and/or tea, lunch, grading material, course manual, examination and certificates.
