Today’s packaging teams often are decentralized and work globally, making a common understanding of general packaging technologies critical to each team’s success. IoPP’s newly introduced online version of its Fundamentals of Packaging Technology course makes this shared understanding possible from wherever you are, with the added convenience of learning on your own time—while also keeping the budget in mind. Corporate licensing is now available at discount pricing for Fundamentals training for five or more users from the same company.  E-Learning: 42 modules. 25+ hours of training. And no traveling to take classes! For details about corporate licensing, contact Jim George, Director of Education, at jimg@iopp.org, or 630-696-4011.
