Chester, CT (March 1, 2013) . . . Paulson Training Programs has announced they are teaming up with Penn State University’s Penn College of Technology (Williamsport, PA) to offer plastics training services.  The college’s Plastics Innovation & Resource Center (PIRC) provides the prestigious Global Standards for Plastics Certification (GSPC) to companies.. They are  the exclusive certifier of the GSPC for North America.

Under the agreement, Paulson will be the exclusive trainer and curriculum provider to Penn College, providing PIRC with training software, manuals, and other relevant materials required to help facilitate the training process.

The GSPC is the only recognized method of apprenticeship certification in the world for the plastics industry. It provides universal recognition of plastic workers’ knowledge and capabilities, as well as demonstrated economic benefits to companies. Companies that have used the GSPC have reported positive impact in terms of morale, camaraderie, speaking a common language, and communication between employment levels. There have also been tangible positive results such as improved production capabilities, increased quality, decreased scrap rate, and fewer customer complaints.

Penn College will provide training both at customer sites and at its campus in Williamsport, where it features modern plastics processing equipment valued at over $2 million USD.

“We think this new partnership will be a great thing for all parties involved,” said Craig Paulson, President of Paulson Training Programs. “Companies will be getting the best training available and employees who receive GSPC certification will have the knowledge and tools to become greater assets to the plastics companies they work for. The companies will see real benefits, and be able to measure results that include improved productivity from this training.”

Paulson will officially announce this new partnership at Plastics New’s Executive Forum in Tampa March 3-6, 2013.
