With over 40 years of innovative, cutting-edge professional development under its belt, the PAC – Packaging Association is offering a four-day professional development program called Precisely Packaging running March 7-10, 2011 in Richmond, BC.

The four day course–a condensed version of the 12-day PAC Packaging Certification course–will equip the attendee with key packaging fundamentals like: design, production and use of packaging materials.

Featuring what is described as a multifaceted approach, the course optimizes the learning experience for entry-level employees and seasoned professionals alike by drawing on the experiences of some 100 industry resources that are utilized by the Certification Program curriculum.

Moderated by PAC packaging education instructor and industry veteran Bill Leigh, the course will offer a full multi-media presentation. Leigh has spent over 30 years a s a packaging materials buyer and graphics manager with General Foods and Kraft Canada, and has also served for over 20 years on the PAC National Board of Directors.

Attendees will also receive a copy of the book: Fundamentals of Packaging Technology written by Wally Soroka – a book considered to be the definitive packaging textbook.

As well, attendees will be afforded the opportunity to take part in on-site plant tours to see the demonstrated classroom theories put into action.
