The Institute takes great pride in its one year Diploma in Packaging Technology course, and this section attempts to assist current students with their studies, even so far as to recommend memory training literature!
This section is in a never ending process of improvement as we find new ways and means of supporting our student body, so we would welcome any comments you may have for improvements or additions (see main menu item ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS & COMMENTS, or click HERE).
We do hope, however, that you will find the information available to you at this stage to be of value.
You should also click on the main menu item PICTURE GALLERY which contains "packaging" pictures which may help you to understand certain aspects of your packaging sudies on the basis that a "picture speaks a 1000 words"! We hope to add to this as time goes by.
Below is a list of practising packaging professionals, and their fields of expertise, to whom you can refer if you need help with any aspect of your studies. These persons have readily agreed to be available to assist our students with anything they do not understand, and the Institute is most grateful to them for being prepared to assist in this manner. We are also grateful to their employer for agreeing so readily to make these folk available to us.
Address a brief email to the email address shown, outlining your query / problem / question, and our expert will try and help you. Please try and be a brief as possible, but do not make the mistake of not explaining your problem sufficiently!
We ask of you that you only telephone the person concerned after you have received a reply, and if you still do not understand. This is because they are not only busy people, but perhaps need some time to consider your question.
