A new way to learn about packaging
The Packaging Education Alliance is a new approach in continuing packaging education. We offer an integrated, on-line way for professionals to expand and refine their skills.
What we can bring you
Convenience. Many professionals who need more education are balancing jobs and career along with all the other demands on their time. The Alliance uses the Internet so you can learn when and where you want.
Authority. We build our courses around some of today's thought leaders in packaging. One of our leading contributors, Packaging & Technology Integrated Solutions, has been recognized for its influence in the community. Other contributors come from leading-edge backgrounds.
A focus on management. The Alliance's materials focus on packaging management. The professions is changing, and knowing how to manage the process and technology is often the key job requirement for packaging managers.
How the Alliance Works
Courses. Each concentrates on one element of packaging management, processes or techniques. You can register for a single course, or you can take several to give you the tools you need for your career. Each course includes the on-line presentation, an electronic Course Guide you can download to your computer, and a test. Pass the test and earn a Certificate of Completion.
The Bigger Picture. The Alliance is in the process of developing a comprehensive, 13-course program that covers all aspects of packaging management. When those courses are in place, the Alliance will offer a professional exam covering all elements of packaging management. Those who pass that exam will earn a certificate that documents their educational achievement.
