The primary aim of these courses is to focus on and establish key competencies and skills for problem solving and decision making in wheat and maize milling situations. These courses consist of four modules each and contain theoretical information for wheat and maize milling technology.
Tuition is through the medium of distance education, i.e. a correspondence course.
SAGMA provides a tutor for each course to assist learners with questions they might have regarding the course material.
However, it is a SAQA (South African Qualification Authority) requirement that learners who follow milling as a career have a mentor (experienced miller/mill manager) to assist and guide them.
A SAGMA tutor will be responsible for the compilation and marking of the progress assignments and semester examinations.
