 2015 Paulson Plastics Academy Registrations Up 35% over 2014

CHESTER, CT­ (February 2015)––Coming off a record 2014, registrations for Paulson’s Plastics Academy (PPA) certification seminars are already outpacing last year by nearly 35 percent. The country’s positive economic outlook certainly helps but even more so companies and employers are recognizing the business success a comprehensive training program can bring.

“We signed up multiple employees over the years and signed up more this year to the Paulson Plastics Academy because it allows our company to train present and future injection molders on the same industry standard. So, no matter if the person makes a career from our company or another, the knowledge and training that they receive from Paulson can be used anywhere they go,” said Marty Hartman, Lead Process Technician at PVS Plastics in Ohio.

Another Paulson Plastics Academy participant said he and his colleagues greatly benefited from the seminars they attended.

“Our experience with the Paulson Plastics Academy has been very good. Paulson Training has been a big part of our successful development of key employees,” said Glen Riley, Plastics Engineering Supervisor at Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories of Idaho.

And there are many more companies like PVS Plastics and Schweitzer that are choosing to make training an integral part of their staff development. According to Cindy Bailey, Paulson’s PPA Administrator, classes are filling up fast and she finds herself fielding several calls and emails a day.

“Customers call daily to inquire about the courses and to sign up. Many are repeat customers having already sent employees to one or more PPA seminars,” says Bailey. Adding, “There’s a growing need for training and skilled workers, everyone I talk to expresses this need and say our strong seminar content really fits the bill.”

Paulson’s PPA seminars combine expert classroom instruction, process simulation and some hands-on machine time to give employees the skills needed to dramatically improve molding or extrusion knowledge.

New seminar courses were introduced in 2014, ProEx1 Extrusion, and ProEx Blow Molding plus Paulson added two new instructors: Extrusion expert, Dan McWilliams and Blow Molding specialist Lew Ferguson.

The ProEx 1 Extrusion 4-day seminar offers immediately actionable training for extrusion production floor personnel at any level of experience–including operators, technicians, engineers and even novice or seasoned extrusion veterans. The new course instructor Dan McWilliams teaches extrusion from a scientific point of view covering topics that include Single Screw, Twin Screw and Sheet.

For the three-day intensive ProEx Blow Molding seminar, participants will learn the fundamentals of extrusion blow molding and understand the complete blow molding process. Paulson’s new seminar instructor, specialist Lew Ferguson, will cover topics that include Parison Programming, Part Quality, Problem Solving and much more. In addition, Ferguson will also cover newly added content for Packaging & Industrial Extrusion.

Each seminar includes time allotted for team discussion, problem solving and one-on-one with the instructor.

Successful course completion earns participants a Paulson certification recognized by hundreds of companies within the plastics industry. The seminars are two to four days depending on the course and are affordably priced with pricing incentives for companies sending several employees.

The Paulson Plastics Academy is held throughout the year, with over 30 seminars offered, in convenient locations around the country. For the 2015 schedule and a list of locations visit PaulsonPlasticsAcademy.com or call 1-800-826-1901.
