AIP announces Australia's first Certified Packaging Professional

The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) has announced that Pierre Pienaar MSc, FAIP, CPP is the inaugural recipient of the Certified Packaging Professional designation.

“As the inaugural recipient to attain the CPP designation in Australasia, I am thrilled to be a part of the newly formed partnership between the AIP and the IoPP. To date, there are about 2000 packaging professionals worldwide that have attained the CPP designation and I am really looking forward to seeing other packaging technologists across Australasia join the program,” Pienaar said.

“What I like about the CPP program is that it helps the international packaging fraternity to better understand the level of knowledge and expertise that you truly have in the packaging field. The CPP designation is also based on current skills and expertise, as each candidate requires recertification every 3 years.

“Being able to have the CPP program now available in Australasia allows packaging professionals the opportunity to join recognised packaging experts from around the world with the industry’s leading professional designation,” he said.
