GEAPS/K-State Hands-On Training for the Operation and Maintenance of Conveying Equipment

About the Course

Participants will be able to learn from five presenters over the three-day course. Hands-on Training for the Operation and 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.

“The information that is shared on this course comes from a combination of technical material and experience of the instructors which is invaluable. KSU is very happy to be able to partner with GEAPS to provide trainings that can help make the industry better,” Campabadal said.

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.

Many people would benefit from this learning experience, including engineers, project managers, grain elevator operators, maintenance personnel, millwrights and safety personnel, among others.

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