GEAPS’ Training and Education program releases its Introduction to Grain Operations course.
The new course is designed to be a dynamic, multimedia version of what was known as GEAPS 500, Introduction to Grain Operations. The course features professionally produced graphics, video examples, relevant photographs, 2D and 3D illustrations, animations and interactive exercises.
This course is a tool to provide relevant, important information for those who are new to the grain industry, said James Lenz, GEAPS’ director of training and education.
“The Introduction to Grain Operations course is a comprehensive multimedia course designed to equip newcomers to the industry with essential insights to benefit professionals across diverse roles," said Lenz.
“From grain elevator operators, other new employees, human resources personnel, administrative staff, sales professionals and beyond, this course provides a solid foundation of knowledge that enhances understanding and collaboration within the grain operations industry.”
The course can be consumed in one workday or taken over a period of time, one module at a time. There are 10 modules, each covering important grain operations topics. Users should expect to spend less than 10 hours on the course and will have access for five weeks after registration.
“It’s not like anything we’ve had before, and we’re not stopping here,” said GEAPS’ Interim Executive Director Julia Kloehn. “Our next production is a course that goes a bit deeper with management essentials for supervisors. We’re working with a great group of subject matter experts to bring it all together.”
For a limited time, GEAPS members may purchase the course for $195; nonmembers pay $295. The regular price for this course will be $250 for members and $525 for nonmembers.
