The GEAPS/Kansas State University Distance Credentialing Program helps grain handling and processing operations professionals build their job skills. A base credential can be earned by completing an organized set of six courses, and each course can be augmented with Specialist Credentials. Base credentials must be maintained by earning a full continuing education unit (CEU) every three years.

A Master Credential is awarded to those who complete the Credential in Grain Operations Management, and all three Specialist Credentials. It is the equivalent of 180 hours of training.

GEAPS and K-State recognized the following individuals who earned and maintained credentials in 2018 at GEAPS Exchange 2019 in New Orleans:
