Berlin Packaging Licenses IoPP's Fundamentals of Packaging Technology Online Course
 
IoPP and Berlin Packaging announce that Berlin Packaging has licensed IoPP’s Fundamentals of Packaging Technology online course. IoPP is providing Berlin Packaging with a secure, co-branded online portal that contains the company’s customized course catalog. 
 
The individual courses Berlin has selected are available through its portal to preapproved employees at both Berlin Packaging and Berlin’s customer companies. Upon gaining access, these employees complete the packaging training on their computer screen. The courses are accessible whenever and from wherever they wish. 
 
Jeremy Lagomarsino, Berlin Packaging’s Vice President of Business Development and Strategy, sees the training as an important part of Berlin’s business model. “At Berlin Packaging, we are committed to the success of our customers, and we feel that knowledgeable customers are the most likely to succeed. As a consequence, we’re delighted to partner with the IoPP in offering a customized packaging training curriculum. The IoPP is a beacon in the packaging industry, and Berlin is glad to work closely with this great organization.”
 
Lagomarsino explains that the benefits of online training are becoming clearer, saying, “The Department of Education has proven that students in online learning conditions perform better than those receiving face-to-face instruction. When applied to packaging, we’ve found this e-learning curriculum to be very instructional and effective.”
 
Adds Patrick Farrey, IoPP Executive Director: “The availability of training inside and outside of Berlin is particularly effective. Because employees at both Berlin and its customer companies can share the same packaging foundation, they are able to work together even more efficiently by drawing from the same knowledge base and speaking the same language, thereby creating better efficiencies across packaging teams. We are pleased that Berlin Packaging has selected the IoPP Fundamentals online program as a training tool for their company.”
 
Berlin Packaging becomes the latest organization to license IoPP’s Fundamentals online course, joining companies including Kraft Foods, General Mills, Clorox, Ecolab and most recently, packaging students in Kenya, through a special training arrangement sponsored by the Staples Foundation and IPACK-IMA.
 
IoPP’s Fundamentals online course catalog, at www.iopp.org/elearning, comprises 42 prerecorded, self-directed lessons and 27 hours of learning covering all the major areas of packaging. Courses may be purchased individually or in topic bundles, and also in bulk through a corporate license.
 
For details on corporate or group licensing options, contact Jim George, Director of Education, jimg@iopp.org or (630) 696-4011.
