THE Australian Institute of Packaging and The Appointments Group have announced a partnership for the marketing and administration of the new online courses Diploma in Packaging Technology and the Certificate in Packaging.
The Appointments Group will now be responsible for the promotion and registration of students, examination arrangements and responding to student enquiries. The AIP will continue to be responsible for the tutors, their appointment and the oversight of course presentation.
The new online courses operate under the accrediting body, the Packaging Industry Awarding Body Company, which in turn is accountable to the Quality and Curriculum Authority in the UK. The Australian Institute of Packaging is the accredited body for the offering of the courses in Australia.
The courses are designed specifically for those already engaged in some facet of packaging and who are interested in receiving formal qualifications and recognition for their work within the packaging industry.
Tutorial support is provided by packaging experts with not only sound academic backgrounds but also substantial international industry experience, which is a critical requirement for the course.
Enquiries regarding the course should be addressed to Manda Duffy, education co-ordinator, The Appointments Group, on 07 3839 5749.
