APPMA Annual Scholarship – Diploma in Packaging Technology.

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 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).

2019 Submissions close 22 February!
