IAPD Train the Trainer Workshop

Announcing an exciting new opportunity with IAPD University
IAPD has partnered with an instructional designer to transform the Introduction to Plastics training manual into a two-day robust and interactive (ideally suited for adult learners) instructor led training. This training program is designed to get performance plastics professionals up to speed on how performance plastic are processed, how their properties impact performance and the basics of the performance plastics we distribute in a memorable and efficient manner.

Now you have the opportunity to become one of the first trainers for this exciting new offering from IAPD University!

Become an IAPD Introduction to Plastics Regional Workshop Trainer

As an IAPD Introduction to Plastics Regional Workshop trainer, you will prepare others to successfully complete the IAPD Performance Plastics Level I Certificate Program during a two-day workshop. Through the training you facilitate, participants will gain a broad understanding of the performance plastics industry and secure a solid foundation of plastics knowledge.

Along with the prestige of being known as an industry subject matter expert, IAPD Introduction to Plastics Regional Workshop trainers will receive a $1,000 stipend for each workshop plus the cost of airfare, hotel and food.

During the Train the Trainer Workshop, you will learn:
  • Adult learning principles and delivery techniques, including how to help adults learn and retain information
