The Institute of Packaging Profesionals (IoPP) is offering a Fundamentals of Packaging Technology weekly food and beverage-focused course beginning July 28, 2014.

Operating in the food and beverage industry, you face very specific packaging challenges. Perhaps you need a thorough grounding in packaging, or you just need to fill in gaps in your education.

If this describes you, and you need the flexibility of learning when it’s convenient in your schedule, IoPP’s new Fundamentals Select hybrid online packaging training program can help you advance your career.

IoPP’s next Fundamentals Select program will provide the need-to-knows that matter to you, as it will focus solely packaging applications for food and beverage.

And if you join IoPP as a member, you can save as much as 20 percent on your registration!

Fundamentals Select combines IoPP’s Fundamentals of Packaging Technology online course with a targeted, weekly instructor-led online study group, which will focus discussion solely on food and beverage applications of the course content. The study group sessions will run from July 28-October 3, 2014.

Here’s how it works:
You register for the complete Fundamentals online course and independently finish all 42 lessons in the course over 10 weeks, at the rate of about four lessons (2-3 hours) per week, when it’s convenient in your schedule.

You sign up separately for the food and beverage study group, which will meet online from 10-11 CDT each Friday during the 10 weeks of this program. View the study group schedule HERE.

Why participate in this specialized study group? You get one hour each week to ask an IoPP-certified instructor questions about the course content and engage in discussion on what’s important for you and current projects you are working on.

But don’t delay in signing up. The food & beverage study group will be limited to 12 participants.
