Upon gaining access, these employees complete the packaging training on their computer screen. The courses are accessible whenever and from wherever they wish.
“TricorBraun is committed to providing comprehensive training for our employees that advances their careers and enhances our customers’ experience,” says TricorBraun president and CEO, Keith Strope. “We are pleased to offer all our employees the opportunity to increase their packaging knowledge base, because the more we know about the components and processes related to packaging materials we provide, the more efficiently and accurately we can assist our customers.”
The online course comprises 42 prerecorded, self-directed lessons and 27 hours of learning covering all the major areas of packaging. Courses may be purchased individually or in topic bundles, and also in bulk through a corporate license.
