Training provided by IGP allows international participants to develop technical knowledge and skills in areas that will allow them to be more informed purchasers and processors of U.S. grains and oilseeds. The training programs acquaint international business and government leaders with current trends and issues affecting the grain and oilseed industries.
IGP courses are normally one to two weeks in length and typically include case studies, lectures and laboratory demonstrations. Courses often include tours of industry facilities, farms, country elevators, Kansas City Board of Trade and other sites of interest. Faculty members from K-State's Department of Grain Science and Industry as well as industry experts facilitate the educational courses.
IGP regularly schedules four courses every year: Grain Purchasing, Feed Manufacturing, Extrusion Processing and Grain Elevator Managers.
IGP also offers the KSU Resident Milling Program which includes a series of eight, week-long courses that are held throughout the year in conjunction with the International Association of Operative Millers.
As the foundation of IGP's training programs, these courses, conducted in state-of-the-art facilities in Manhattan, Kansas, attract hundreds of participants annually from throughout the world.
