GEAPS and Kansas State University are once again partnering to offer in-person industry education.

Hands-On Training for the Operation & Maintenance of Conveying Equipment is scheduled for December 5-7 at the IGP Institute on the campus of Kansas State University.

Participants will be able to learn from five presenters over the three-day course. Hands-On Training for the Operation & Maintenance of Conveying Equipment will teach participants how to safely operate, maintain and repair conveying equipment commonly used in grain facilities through instructor demonstrations and hands-on practice. The course will also provide practical information and guidelines on how to develop and implement a comprehensive preventive maintenance program.

"I do think this program is very useful to both GEAPS members and the grain industry. I am all for it," says Chuck Kunisch, GEAPS president.

After successfully completing the course, learners will be able to install, operate and inspect conveying equipment. They'll also be able to troubleshoot problems and maintain the equipment, understand what could happen to grain quality if conveying equipment is used improperly and apply and perform the best safety practices and procedures on conveying equipment.

To get the most out of the in-person training, participants will complete three online modules before traveling to Kansas.
