Courses are open to anyone, even if they are not a GEAPS member or a student enrolled at K-State.

GEAPS 501: Management Basics for Grain Facility Supervisors
This course will provide an extensive overview of the main duties, responsibilities and expectations of grain operations supervisors and managers. It will cover essential duties, topics and roles supervisors and managers need to understand, and why they are important.

This course aims to introduce students to key information about powered-transmission design, system design and other affiliated systems used to move and store grain and related commodities.

GEAPS 501 is one of six courses required to earn the Credential in Grain Operations Management (CGOM). The CGOM is the first formal credential in the grain industry, and can be augmented with Specialist Credentials in Grain Quality Management, Grain Handling Equipment Management and Property and Casualty Risk Management.

Completion of GEAPS 552 counts towards the Specialist Credential in Grain Handling Equipment Management. Anyone who completes the CGOM and all three specialist credentials earns the Master Credential in Grain Operations Management (MCGOM), the highest certification available in the industry.

Tuition for GEAPS/K-State continuing education courses is US$640 for GEAPS members and US$815 for non-members. For more information about the courses or the GEAPS/K-State Distance Education Program, visit the GEAPS website or contact Chuck House at chuck@geaps.com or call (763) 999-4300.
