Here Is Our 10 Point Success Assurance Plan

1. Customer success is our only measure of success.

If you don’t see significant improvements in knowledge, skills and productivity & profit in your plastics manufacturing operation, we will fix it. And we know how to do it. Because we visit you, talk to your key personnel and find out exactly what training your employees need to maximize productivity and ROI.

2. We deliver personalized attention to all our customers.

With only a handful of exceptions, every one of our 5,000 plastics processing customers over the past 35 years has had a personal visit from a Paulson certified training and processing expert. Why do we go to these lengths? Because customer success is our only measure of success.

3. We help you customize your training or customize it for you.

We provide you with the tools you need to customize your interactive plastics training program – make it your own. You can do it yourself, or we can do it for you. Either way, your customized training program becomes much more effective.

4. Training Implementation Assurance Plan.

We have gone to great lengths (and expense) to make sure our technical support is second to none. We have numerous online videos in the tech support area of our website that address the most common questions and issues customers have. Don’t see what you’re looking for? Call us. We’ll either fix it over the phone or make you a step-by-step video so you can walk through the fix yourself.

5. Customized curriculum developed based on interviews with your team.

The training curriculum we create together during our visit to your plant will be closely monitored. With 35 years of exclusively plastics industry training experience, we’ve gotten to the point where we see potential problem areas as they relate to training implementation well before they impact your training initiative. By working closely with your assigned personnel, we eliminate any problems early and fast. And if you follow the step-by-step customized training plan we jointly develop, problems should be few.

6. Before purchase attention and after purchase success guarantee.

Our staff of processing and training experts are available to you before and after purchase. There are no winners when training goes wrong. And there is no reason that it should. That’s why the best in the business partner with Paulson. They know our obsession with results. Customer success is our only measure of success.

7. State-of-the-art training content and visual presentation.

Your company’s training program stays current with the changing plastics processing technology. Courseware upgrades are important. New machinery, new controls and the ability to more closely control the process all need to be taught. We upgrade our courses to make sure that they are visually up-to-date and the content teaches new technical breakthroughs or techniques.

8. Creator of the industry standard “4 variables” & “from the plastics point of view” teaching method.

Paulson’s “processing from the plastics point of view” is an industry standard. Physics doesn’t change over time. That’s why our “4 processing variables” and “processing from the plastics point of view” training, which Don Paulson discovered and started teaching in the early 1970’s, has stood the test of time. There is a long list of trainers who have adopted our approach. In fact, it is now taught by most trainers in the plastics industry. What Paulson created 40 years ago is now the de-facto standard for all types of plastics training. If you’re going to approach your process “from the plastic’s point of view”, learn it from Paulson.

9. Certification for The Paulson Plastics Academy (PPA) and Paulson Online Courses.

Paulson Training Programs offers Certification for successfully completing our rigorous interactive courses as well as our seminars offered through The Paulson Plastics Academy (PPA). PPA is a division of Paulson Training Programs that offers expert instructor led, vendor neutral certification seminars that teach you how to optimize plastics processing for injection molding, extrusion, blow molding, or thermoforming as well as teaching managers and supervisors how to effectively manage a plastics processing plant. Our seminars are held in multiple state-of-the-art technical facilities across the country and in select locations in Canada, Mexico and Hong Kong. The seminars are 3-5 days long and we also offer Custom On-Site versions as well where our instructors come to you making it far more affordable to train a team. As part of PPA, we provide a rigorous certification process. To maintain its integrity, it is not enough to just register. Paulson Training Programs has an excellent reputation for developing highly qualified injection molding personnel who are sought after by the industry. To maintain this quality we test each student at the end of the course with a written exam. Grades 86% and above will earn a Gold Certificate of Achievement; 75% – 85% a Silver Certificate of Achievement; those achieving a 70% – 74% will receive a Blue certificate and all others earn a Certificate of Attendance. Certifications are also awarded to those individuals who successfully complete an online course achieving the above scores and better. Certificates for online courses are handed out by the individual’s company administrator. Fore more details on Paulson Certifications, please feel free to contact us.

10. Paulson is your training partner.

Our training specialists are traveling constantly, consulting with customers-to-be and checking in on current customers. While we won’t force our way in to your plant, we do encourage you to invite us in 2, 3, 4 times a year to make sure your training is on-track.
