WCMA educational programs strengthen and grow the dairy industry. Here’s a look at programs we currently sponsor and promote:
High Performance Leadership: Management Skills for Dairy and Food Professionals
This University of Wisconsin School of Business Certificate Program is designed to help managers lead and motivate employees to create a stronger, more productive organization. It’s also a terrific peer learning and networking opportunity, specific to the dairy industry. All sessions are located at the Fluno Center in Madison, and more information is available here.
Certificate in Dairy Processing
In 2016, WCMA teamed up with Center for Dairy Research to launch this new ten-week short course for plant workers and operators. Ten distinct weekly modules provide clear understanding of all dairy plant processes. Using practical applications and a system of mentors, coupled with online learning sessions, this program ensures participants are immersed in everything from food safety to ingredients, and cheesemaking to safe packaging.
