IMAPS 2014 - Space Still Available in our 19 Short Courses    ^ Top
IMAPS 2014 - San Diego, The Future of Packaging - will be held October 13-16, 2014, with 19 PDCs being offered before the conference on Monday the 13th, as well as Thursday morning the 16th. Details below and at

PDCs (Professional Development Course) are a big part of the Annual IMAPS Symposium each year. Why not plan to take a course on Monday or a Thursday AM session and take advantage of the rich learning opportunities available at the IMAPS symposium. This year the Monday courses are going to have a delayed start kicking off at 10 AM and running till 6 PM with a working lunch. It's something new and we hope you like it. This new time slot will give the locals a chance to beat the traffic and a little extra time for the out of town folks to get organized and prepare for a full day of learning.

PDCs create a unique environment whereby students can personally interact with the instructors, and with each other in the classroom and over lunch. It's mentally stimulating and the new found professional connections will prove to be valuable in the long run. Learning on line is fine, but it cannot duplicate eight hours spent immersed in a specific topic, led by an industry expert in the field and surrounded by like minded professionals. My father used to say, "it's not what you say but how you say it." So much of what we learn is contained in the tone of voice and non-verbal cues. PDCs provide that learning environment that's just not available on line.

This year we've put together another impressive assortment course options Our goal is to make the IMAPS PDCs the premier learning experience; so we ask that you take time to fill out the evaluation form that accompanies each course and give us your feedback on this or any other aspects of the PDCs. Read through the course descriptions on line and pick the course that best suits your company and career objectives. Every PDC includes a full set of comprehensive course notes. Class sizes typically range from eight to twenty students and there is always ample time for questions. We hope you will consider joining us in San Diego for a learning experience like no other.

NEW PDC FORMAT - Monday & Thursday Courses:
Monday, October 13: full-day courses, running 10:00 am - 6:00 pm;
Monday, Half-day courses running 10:00am - 1:45pm & 2:15 pm - 6:00 pm
