DISCOUNT POLICY

The SAGMA course is structured to train a learner to qualify as a miller in theory and practice.   The course material has been carefully selected to give the learner miller a good background in all aspects of the milling process.

Milling is an industry that keeps pace with modern technical innovations.  No other country has a milling course dedicated solely to maize milling.  In most other countries, wheat is the principal grain, and therefore other grains such as maize are covered very briefly.  In this country, as in most of Sub-Saharan Africa, maize milling is second only to wheat milling, and we have some very sophisticated plants.  It would therefore not be possible to combine both wheat and maize milling into one course.

We care about our customers and are always looking for ways to offer them the best value for money.  One method we use is a discount system.

We are also open to negotiating discounts with organizations willing to become members of the National Chamber of Milling.

 Note: these discounts only apply to levy-paying organisations based within the Republic of South Africa, and the operations are also based within the country’s borders.

We offer a 50% discount on registration fees on all modules to organisations that are members in good standing.
