Until now a lack of training pathways has meant new operators are reliant on your existing team members passing on knowledge. TOMRA Food Academy’s mission is to ensure that every person interacting with TOMRA equipment is equipped with the right blend of skills and experience. This is an opportunity for individuals to develop their careers and get their skills recognized by TOMRA Certifications. 

Study an individual course or gain a full certification

TOMRA Food Academy provides equipment-specific and/or industry-specific courses that range in length from 60-90 mins. These can be completed individually or as a combination of courses that make up TOMRA Food-endorsed certifications. Knowledge checks and skill assessments make it easy to track progress through study modules. The system automatically records are progress on each course and learning path successfully completed. Completion is recognized by a downloadable personalized certificate.

I see that it's less time consuming and less costly to devote 1-2 hours to an e-learning course and learn the different optimal ways to run my machine than to try it out myself, learning-by-doing because that way I immediately know how to reach maximum performance.
