CoursesTraining and Development of people working within the milk harvesting and water application sectors is the MPTA's key focus. The nature of our industry is that work undertaken is often specialised and costly so it is important to ensure that quality standards are upheld and that there is consistency in the work of our tradespeople. MPTA offers a suite of training courses in both the milk harvesting and water application sectors to aid in the development of staff.
MPTA offers an Advanced Qualification Structure which trainees can work towards. These qualifications are made up of a number of grouped courses and include the Advanced Certificate in Milking Machine Testing and the Certificate in Mastitis & Milk Quality Advisor. These qualifications can lead to the ultimate NZMPTA Dairy Diagnostics Specialist certification. View the Advanced Qualifications Structure here...
All training courses are run by the Technology Training Centre Ltd; a wholly owned subsidiary company of NZMPTA.
