The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) has partnered with Institute of Packaging Professionals (IoPP) to introduce a residential version of the Fundamentals of Packaging Technology course for Australasia.
The Institute says the course content is developed in consultation with packaging subject matter experts at “leading global consumer packaged goods companies”. The course is the basis for the examination part of the Certified Packaging Professional Designation, and so helps participants move towards becoming an internationally recognised Certified Packaging Professional (CPP).
The course is divided into four two-day semesters to provide more flexibility around participants work schedules. Each semester is focused on one specific area of packaging, and participants can enroll in as many as they wish based on development need and knowledge gaps.
Topics to be covered include graphic design, market research, printing, lithography, gravure, labelling, barcoding, paperboard, folding cartons, corrugate fibreboard, box compression, supply chain and logistics, polymers, extrusion moulding, flexible packaging, thermoforming, blow moulding, injection moulding, closures, bottle design, metal cans, adhesives, containers, glass packaging, packaging machinery, filling machinery, production line equipment, and more.
