Build your packaging team's knowledge - globally
Packaging teams are decentralized, often working globally, making a common understanding of general packaging technologies difficult to attain, yet critical to each team member's success. By introducing an online format, IoPP's Fundamentals of Packaging Technology course becomes a truly global program that helps develop a common understanding of packaging terms - including many technical issues - accross global packaging teams. Convenience is great - but flexibility is key!
