The Australian Packaging and Processing Machinery Association (APPMA) in conjunction with the Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) has opened submissions for its tenth annual scholarship program which will enable one lucky packaging technologist, designer or engineer in Australia the opportunity to complete a Diploma in Packaging Technology to the value of $9,000.

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. The Diploma prepares students to take responsibility for packaging operations at any level through the supply chain. The qualification is comprehensive, and provides an opportunity to study the principles of packaging, packaging materials and packaging processes.

Diploma in Packaging Technology students are from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines, and are typically experienced practitioners or managers in technical, sales/marketing, QA, purchasing, engineering or design.

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.

The APPMA annual Scholarship Program has been running for ten years and is a part of the Association’s on-going commitment to ensuring that individuals have the opportunity to further their education within the packaging industry. The 2018 APPMA Scholarship Winner will be announced at the 2018 Packaging & Processing Innovation & Design Awards which will be held in conjunction with the prestigious international WorldStar Packaging Awards on the 2 May at Surfers Paradise, Queensland.
