In 2014 AICC’s Education Committee identified and addressed a growing need for skilled workers in the packaging industry. It was determined that the skills gap is widening, and over the next decade, more skilled workers will be needed and yet unfilled due to a talent shortage. As a result, it was mandated that AICC work to create courses relevant to the packaging industry as classroom, webinar and e-learning opportunities enabling members to train employees at a relatively low cost.
Since 2014 AICC has launched more than a 20 online courses and added new seminar and webinar training offerings relevant to packaging and focused on the technical needs of our members.
AICC is finalizing the course development for Mastery Tracks. The courses identified were determined crucial to the success of any employee working in a Packaging Plant by the AICC Education Committee -- a committee made up of owners, managers and emerging leaders within the industry. Anyone enrolling in a Certificate program can take courses offered throughout the year as a way of earning credits to a Mastery Certificate.
