AIP heads to New Zealand with plastic packaging training courses

Supplier News

The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) will be heading to New Zealand soon to run the Introduction to Plastics and Advanced Plastic Packaging half-day training courses.

The half-day training courses in plastic packaging will be held in conjunction with the Packaging Council of New Zealand on the 14th and 15th of November at the BNZ Highbrook Partner Centre, East Tamaki.

The plastic packaging training courses will be conducted by leading packaging consultant, Pierre Pienaar, MSc FAIP.  

Introduction to Plastics course

The half-day training course introduces participants to the basic principles, techniques and equipment for the most commonly-used physical and analytical tests on polymeric materials.  

This course will present a precise, non-mathematical introduction to plastics, their raw materials, syntheses, properties and applications, manufacturing and properties of plastics as a function of the molecular properties of polymers used in the plastics industry.  

Who should attend?

People who have a direct involvement in packaging operations as well as design and development within all packaging associated industries will benefit from the course.  

Advanced Plastic Packaging course

The half-day training course will cover certain aspects of organic chemistry, revisit the raw materials, syntheses and applications as well as touch upon the manufacturing and moulding aspects.   

The course will also discuss the molecular structure of plastics in relation to the two main families of plastics, namely thermosets and thermoplastics.  

Who should attend?

The Advanced Plastic Packaging course is intended for those that have already attended the ‘Introduction to Plastics’ course, or have spent a number of years in a related plastics industry.
