Eric Ockerlund, Production Manager of OxBox
These courses are great for those new to the packaging industry that really want to get their foot in the door and jumpstart their career. The courses contain loads of information, yet they are not at all overwhelming. I really like how the courses provide the student with not only basic knowledge of the different parts of the packaging industry, but an in-depth look into the various operations and machines used. These courses also provide a great understanding of the vocabulary used in the industry. All in all, it’s a fantastic way to gain years worth of knowledge in just a few weeks.
