GEAPS Giving You More Training Options for 2013


Grain company professionals will have more training options available next year, as GEAPS and Kansas State University expand and upgrade their award winning distance education program. A total of 19 online courses will be offered in 2013, up from 14 this year and 12 in 2011.

The schedule includes five new or updated courses, including “Introduction to Grain Operations,” “Grain Quality Management,” “Grain Elevator Equipment Maintenance,” “Grain Facilities Plan¬ning & Design” and “Preventing Grain Dust Explosions.”

Two or three courses will be offered in January, February, March, April, May and November. Each lasts five weeks for a total of 10 course hours.
