Integrated standardised competency based training for sugar milling operations

This project established a learning management system (LMS) to act as a single resource for training in Australian sugar mills, based on the package aNewSpring. It developed a standard format for training packages and setup within the LMS, catering for operators and supervisors with a range of experience from having no previous sugar experience through to a high level of sugar technology skills. Training packages were mapped to the AgriFoods FDF10 knowledge competencies and assessment instruments were developed to these same competencies. It developed specific training packages for high-grade fugalling, sugar drying, low-grade fugalling and cooling crystallisation, using existing training materials and developed new content where needed.
