Fiber Sorting, Grading, Classing Certificate

 

The goal of this certificate is to provide professional training which will lead to standardize sorting and grading of natural animal fibers in the United States thereby supporting and enhancing the natural fiber textile industry across the country.  Classes are taught throughout the country with instruction provided by certified Master Sorter/Grader/Classer professionals from SGC (Sorting Grading Classing). The certification includes three parts:

 

• Basic Fiber Sorting and Grading is a day-long workshop for .8 CEUs (Continuing Educational Units). The goal for the Basic Course is to have natural fiber producers gain the knowledge to return to their farm and organize their fiber for production. Management, harvesting and sorting are the building blocks for the workshop with hands-on time to gain experience.

 

• Advanced Fiber Sorting and Grading is a three-day, hands-on course for 2.4 CEUs. It is geared to those individuals who want more in-depth education and/or are interested in developing a business sorting for other fiber bearing livestock owners or fiber purchasers.
