10/08/2016: IAOM announces new milling technician vocational certification courses

Classes in the newly developed Milling Technician Vocational Certificate Program will begin in just a few weeks at Cowley College in Arkansas City, Kansas. 

A fully online course of study, the IAOM and Cowley College partnership will prepare students for positions as trained technicians working in a flour mill. The first course will begin on August 22.

The innovative approach is designed to help meet industry demand and connects students to career opportunities after completing just two semesters and an internship. All courses earn college credits and are delivered in an online format so that students do not need to be on campus to take the courses.

A combination of mechatronics and milling courses, studies during the two semesters of college credit courses will include basic math needed for the mill environment, as well as an overview of equipment, electronics and electricity, and pneumatic fundamentals.

Students will be introduced to the milling process, wheat characteristics, the industry, and the various requirements of the gradual reduction process in making wheat flour. Quality assessments will be an integral part of studies. At the conclusion of the courses, candidates will complete a 250-hour internship at a commercial flour mill.
