The Certificate in Packaging is a Level 3 qualification designed to meet the training needs of a wide variety of people involved in packaging.  From the new entrant to the industry who wants the best possible preparation for a career in the industry, to design, production, management, sales and marketing or purchasing staff who need to deepen their understanding of this vital and complex discipline.

The Certificate in Packaging is accredited by PIABC.  The course is presented in a distance learning format for Australia and is comprised of a manual and text book.  The initial mandatory unit is made up of a series of assignments over a ten week period that prepares students for the two hour examination.

Successful students then proceed to select three units from a list of options that are presented on-line and supported by a tutor.  The successful completion of the compulsory unit and the three additional units qualifies for the award of the Certificate in Packaging.
