Registration is open for two new PMMI U On the Road courses taking place Monday, July 31 at Asco’s global headquarters in Florham Park, N.J., according to PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies. This free event—valued at $299—brings together consumer packaged goods (CPG) professionals and PMMI members to learn about the latest packaging and processing issues affecting the industry.
The first of the two workshops, Total Cost of Ownership: Understand What It Is, How to Calculate and Its Many Benefits, will take place 10:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. (networking lunch provided). The interactive session will focus on the acquisition, operation and maintenance costs of capital expenditures. Provided with sample requests for proposal (RFPs), CPG and OEM personnel will work together in collaborative teams to develop the total cost of ownership, using case studies of different types of equipment purchases.
“We are very excited to offer these first two PMMI U On the Road courses free of charge,” says Glen Long, senior vice president, PMMI. “Through our existing workshops, eLearning courses and mechatronics certification tests, PMMI U strives to provide timely, cost-effective and convenient workforce development opportunities for both CPGs and OEMs in the packaging and processing industry. With these new PMMI U On the Road courses, we are bringing the industry’s workforce development resources to you.”
