New Alliance to Serve as Source of Plastics Information, Training, and Certification
The Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE), the Plastics Innovation and Resource Center (PIRC) of Pennsylvania College of Technology , and Paulson Training Programs, Inc. have entered into an alliance to offer plastics professionals and companies a resource for educational information, training programs and certifications.
Drawing on its wide reach within the plastics industry, SPE will market this training and certification alliance within the community and will also initiate outreach programs to attract new members with their first year of premium membership as part of their training and certification packages. Paulson will provide discounts for existing SPE members who attend seminars through their Plastics Academy or onsite training. Penn College brings exclusive North American rights to the premiere Global Standards for Plastics Certification (GSPC) program. GSPC is the only recognized method of apprenticeship certification in the world for the plastics industry. It provides universal recognition of plastics worker’s knowledge and capabilities, as well as demonstrated economic benefits to companies.
“As a combination of a robust industry association, a technical college and a world-class professional training company, this new alliance offers individuals and companies everything they need to know to make the most of their career and business opportunities in the plastics industry,” said Russell Broome, Managing Director of SPE.
Those interested in learning more about how to get started, sign up for new membership, or sign up for individual or company training can contact SPE headquarters for details.
