APPMA opens scholarship entries

Submissions are open for the tenth annual APPMA Scholarship program, which will enable one packaging technologist, designer or engineer in Australia the opportunity to complete a Diploma in Packaging Technology through the Australian Institute of Packaging to the value of $9,000.

The APPMA annual Scholarship Program is a part of our on-going commitment to ensuring that packaging engineers have the opportunity to further their education within the packaging industry.

The scholarship, won last year by Nathan Leong of Primo Smallgoods (pictured above left with Mark Dingley, APPMA chair), is useful for those with backgrounds in technical, sales/marketing, QA, purchasing, engineering or design.

The Australian Packaging and Processing Machinery Association (APPMA), in conjunction with the Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP), run an annual scholarship program which enables a packaging engineer the opportunity to complete a Diploma in Packaging Technology.

The Diploma in Packaging Technology is a Level 5 qualification which is internationally recognised for those wishing to pursue a career in the packaging industry or for those who are already in the industry and who wish to extend their knowledge and expertise. It has been offered by the AIP continuously since 1980 and has an exemplary record of successful students. The course has now been revised and updated and is offered on-line. It is accredited by PIABC, the Packaging Industry Awarding Body Company, which is in turn accredited by OfQual (Office of Qualifications and Examinations).

Completion of the Diploma in Packaging Technology demonstrates your commitment to your career and to the industry. Delegates who successfully complete the Diploma are equipping themselves for senior positions within the packaging industry.

Submissions for the scholarship will close on 22 February, with the winner to be announced on 27 March at the APPMA 2019 Awards of Excellence Gala Dinner as part of AUSPACK 2019.
