New Year, New Opportunities to Learn

If you are you are looking to gain industry knowledge, fill those professional development requirements, or simply learn something new while also being mindful of the bottom line in 2022, take advantage of the eLearning opportunities from TAPPI Academy.

TAPPI’s team of industry experts reformatted the content from the popular face-to-face courses to create the Tissue 101 and Tissue 201 eLearning courses. Not only can you work at your own pace, you can also earn an optional Professional Certificate upon completion.

TAPPI Academy has also teamed up with KÅ‘rber Tissue to offer two new introductory eLearning courses to help you acquire the basic knowledge necessary to understand the tissue converting and packaging processes. Introduction to Tissue Converting  provides an overview of the converting process from the unwind stands through the log saw. Introduction to Tissue Packaging explains the tissue wrapping and bundling process and breaks down each sub-section and process of a multi-layer poly wrapper and bundler.

The TAPPI/NPT2 comprehensive eLearning courses are introductory/intermediate-level technical courses that were designed by experienced educators who have taught this content to thousands of mill personnel across the globe.  Individuals can purchase streaming access directly from tappi.org.

More Than a Box: Box Plant 101  is an introductory video recommended for new employee orientation and provides baseline knowledge to anyone new or associated with the plant (sales, finance, human resources, etc.). It includes a view of a typical box plant, how a quality box is made, an overview of the corrugator and a review of materials handling.

In addition, there are two winding eLearning courses targeted toward the technical personnel responsible for most any type of web machines. The courses, Web Handling and Converting and Web Winding: Machines, Mechanics and Measurements, are presented by subject matter expert Dr. David Roisum of Finishing Technologies, a well-known authority in web handling and converting.
