GEAPS/K-State Distance Ed Program Offers Volume Discounts to Help Companies Address Needs For More Operations Training

Date Posted: June 11, 2013

Minneapolis—The Grain Elevator and Processing Society (GEAPS) is now offering volume discounts to grain companies for its award-winning Distance Education Program with Kansas State University (K-State).

GEAPS developed the volume discount program in response to inquiries from grain companies seeking efficient ways to train large groups of grain operations staff in industry best practices for grain handling, facility design and other key components of grain elevator operations and management.

Companies may now purchase coupon blocks for courses, available in three sizes.

As the size of the coupon block increases, so does the discount.

• A Block -- 10-29 registrations – 5% off the $595 current member rate

• B Block -- 30-49 registrations – 10% off the $595 current member rate

• Z Block -- 50+ registrations – 15% off the $595 current member rate

Purchasing a coupon block of any size makes it easier for companies to invest in high quality, industry standard training for more of their employees.

To learn more about volume discounts, including usage policies, or purchase a coupon block for your company, contact Rose Miller at or (952) 928-4640.
