Helping you succeed in a complex field
If you don’t have a packaging degree. Or if you need more knowledge to deliver solutions drawn from an increasingly complex number of options. Then IoPP's Fundamentals of Packaging Technology course helps span the gap. It teaches you about every major segment of packaging, and you grow professionally.
“It filled in knowledge gaps about processes we do that I had limited exposure to.”

If choosing the in-person, onsite option, take as few as 2-1/2 days to cover a specific subject area, such as plastics or paperboard. Or, get packaging's "big picture" by taking all 10 days. Fundamentals of Packaging Technology course is divided into four semesters. Each is 2-1/2 days long, and each covers specific topics such as paper, plastics, cans, bottles. Semesters include information on decorating, labeling, protective packaging, closures and machinery—a thorough exploration of Packaging 101. Take one semester, take all four semesters. Choose what you need to reach the level of professional development you want.
