Dairy manufacturing businesses are only as good as the skills and knowledge of the people who work within them.

There are many organisations across Australia - and internationally - offering training courses in dairy manufacturing skills.

You can also sign up for training webinars provided by Dairy Australia.

Training courses

Developing skills in dairy manufacturing is an ongoing challenge.

These online training resources for dairy manufacturing staff have been compiled by State Regulators. New courses will be added as they become available.
