nabim is committed to the development of the people within the flour milling industry and places a high priority on education and training.
The flour milling industry is a highly skilled and challenging industry, with training and education playing a vital role for employee development.
For over 100 years nabim has been responsible for industry training. Its world renowned flour milling correspondence courses form a Distance Learning Programme structured into seven modules. This programme provides an overview of the industry and process, and prepares students for examinations that lead to the nabim Advanced and Intermediate certificates in Flour Milling.
In addition, nabim provides a spectrum of other training resources developed by and for the industry: videos; e-learning; and most recently a virtual flour mill.
Much work has also been done over the years on promoting practical milling skills, including a Craft Skills Certificate, Occupational Standards and Proficiency Qualifications. Recently, the focus has been more on the identification of suitable apprenticeship routes.
