Submissions close 8 May for the Australian Packaging Machinery Association (APMA) annual scholarship program which will enable one lucky packaging engineer the opportunity to complete a Diploma in Packaging Technology.
The Australian Packaging Machinery Association – Australia’s national organisation, representing the packaging and processing machinery industry – believes that the scholarship program is not only an opportunity for a packaging engineer to further their education in the field of packaging, but also allows associations like theirs to contribute to the industry.
The Diploma in Packaging Technology is a U.K. government accredited qualification and operated by the PIABC, in conjunction with the IoP, and has been offered by the AIP continuously since 1980.
The Diploma has been revised and updated and is offered on-line. The qualification is broad, and provides an opportunity to study the principles of packaging, packaging materials and packaging processes.
The Diploma is a Degree-level qualification that prepares students to take responsibility for packaging operations at any level through the supply chain.
