The feed manufacturing industry is undergoing continuous change and must satisfy the increasingly stringent demands placed on its wide variety of finished products and today's fierce competition. This often brings about changes of technical and staff-related nature in the production plants, which in many cases calls for training and continuing professional development of management staff in the field of process technology.
We are convinced that our training program, which is governed by the motto "hands-on and focused", enables us to cover most of the individual needs of our customers.
Course- and Service Offerings at the Swiss Institute of Feed Technology
Encouraged by the exceptional experiences and positive feedback from the industry, we will continue with the 2012-introduced dual concept for the "Diploma Course" leading to the well-recognized degree of a "Feed Production Engineer".
This dual concept is comprised of a preparatory course on a correspondence basis and an intensive attendance course at the site of the SFT. The objective is to minimize the students' absence from their jobs by shifting specific lessons from the attendance course to the distance preparatory course.
Continuously updated training material in combination with modern communication means makes sure that the students get all the necessary information and support on shortest notice.
The diploma course is offered each year alternately in English and German. In the following (third) year, an extended range of short courses is offered in order to meet the needs of the increasing number of employees who are unable to leave their jobs for the time required of a diploma course. Short courses are offered primarily in German and English and last from a few days to a maximum of two weeks. More detailed information is available in the respective course descriptions.
Upon request, the SFT is also in a position to organize customer and plant-specific courses at the Institute's site. SFT can also offer these courses at the customer's location, with simultaneous interpretation into the relevant language.
The SFT service offering is conducted by independent consultancy in the case of plant optimizations or alterations, plant inspections, performance of tests (e.g. homogeneity, cross-contamination...) and much more. Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can help you in such matters.
