Student Testimonials

"I am enjoying the class and learning a lot. I like being able to go at my own pace and with it being on the internet can do it from anywhere, including a plane."
-Corey, Senior Director of Strategic Sourcing at Novolex
" I find the videos and readings very interesting. I like that they can be completed at any time, and that there are a variety of mediums used (PDF, Video, PPT, etc.) I really enjoyed the packaging materials section of the course. I am definitely one who likes to know how things work. Even though I am in the paperboard/corrugated industry, I found the portions about glass, plastic, and metal extremely interesting. It was cool to see how everyday items (like a soda can) are truly an engineering feat."
-Kaitlyn, Graphic Designer at Georgia-Pacific

It's time to take your packaging education to the next level.
