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.  Learn more here.
