AIP provides online training courses for packaging industry

The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) is moving five training courses to a virtual platform, to ensure consistency of educational offerings for the industry. In addition, two of the training courses are new to the portfolio and one has been updated.

The first of the five-course series will be ‘Flexible Packaging: Now and Into the Future’ on 16 June 2020, with Joe Foster FAIP, Managing Director, OF Packaging. This course will cover the basic fundamentals of flexible packaging, its benefits, how to choose the specific structures to match the product, its performance, marketing challenges and how the packaging is manufactured.

With the latest challenges regarding sustainability in packaging, the course will discuss the options, pros and cons of compostability vs recyclability, and other alternative materials now available. Additionally, the course will address future plans for flexible packaging and available recycling options to meet the 2025 National Packaging Targets.

Packaging technologists and designers, product developers, technical and production staff using packaging, and sales and marketing representatives are all encouraged to partake in the training course. The course will provide a broad understanding of the benefits of flexible packaging, the process of manufacturing, the latest packaging trends and their driving forces. The course will also help attendees develop an understanding of flexible films, and where the future lies with flexible films and the changes ahead.
