Applications closing soon for APPMA Scholarship
If you’ve been putting off finishing your application for the 2013 APPMA Scholarship, now is the time for action: applications are closing soon. Entries must be received by close of business on Friday 22 March.
The fifth annual scholarship program, offered by APPMA (the Australian Packaging and Processing Machinery Association) in conjunction with the Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP), will give a packaging engineer the opportunity to complete a Diploma in Packaging Technology.
“The Diploma in Packaging Technology is a Level 5 qualification which is internationally recognised for those wishing to pursue a career in the packaging industry or for those who are already in the industry and who wish to extend their knowledge and expertise. It has been offered by the AIP continuously since 1980 and has an exemplary record of successful students,” said Mark Dingley, APPMA Chair.
“The diploma prepares students to take responsibility for packaging operations at any level through the supply chain. The qualification is comprehensive and provides an opportunity to study the principles of packaging, packaging materials and packaging processes.”
Ralph Moyle, MAIP, National President of the Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP), added that the AIP is grateful that associations like APPMA recognise the importance of education and training and are contributing to the growth of the packaging industry as a whole in Australia.
The winner of the 2013 scholarship will be announced during the 2013 APPMA Awards of Excellence on 8 May during AUSPACK PLUS 2013. Click here for more information on how to apply.
