Advanced training for millers
Campden BRI case study
We are delighted to be involved in running the prestigious Advanced Milling Diploma programme, which is organised by nabim, the National Association of British and Irish Millers.
The programme was developed with the aim of providing a practical and technical training programme beyond the level of existing correspondence courses, in order to help produce the ‘leading millers’ of the future. It involves two 5-day residential courses, the first of which is held at Campden BRI and the second at the Bühler Training Centre in Switzerland. It also involves an extensive research/dissertation project.
Nigel Bennett, nabim secretary, comments: "We are pleased to be associated with Campden BRI in the running of the Diploma. Their training and pilot plant facilities, and technical know–how and experience in milling and baking activities mean that they are perfect partners for delivering the objectives of the programme: to develop millers of the highest potential, and to improve the industry's skills base through a greater understanding of flour functionality and application of theoretical knowledge into practical skills."
Prof. Sam Millar, Director of Cereals and Cereal Processing at Campden BRI adds: "We pride ourselves on our close working relationship with the entire cereals supply chain, and on our ability to meet their scientific and technical needs. Our strong programme of R&D involves us in all aspects of cereal production - form wheat breeding and agronomy through to end product quality. This enables us to deliver the innovation and high quality services that our clients expect from our practical application of technical excellence."
