The Swiss Institute of Feed Technology has been running a special course to give graduates vocational skills relevant to a career in this sector. They undertook a seven-month preparatory correspondence course and a subsequent seven-week intensive training course in Uzwil, Switzerland. The students dealt with 21 subjects and had to pass no fewer than 12 intermediate tests.
This entitles them to the much sought-after diploma qualifying them as Feed Production Engineer.
It was truly global, with entrants from from South Africa, Spain, Finland, the United Kingdom, Ecuador, the Netherlands, and Switzerland. And also for the first time ever, Namibia and Trinidad/Tobago.
