width=300AICC, The Independent Packaging Association, has launched a new online course, Conceptos Básicos de Corrugado 101, 102, and 103 (Corrugated Basics 101, 102, and 103) in Spanish.

These courses cover the history of corrugated and discuss the construction, configurations, and types of board, and how it is made. Specifications of linerboard, medium, and finished combined corrugated board, as well as tests that assure quality, are also reviewed. Finally, the course explains the most common forms of corrugated packaging, box terminology, and box blanks before they have been formed. An explanation of the size and scope of the corrugated industry is also part of this free online course.

The translation for these courses was sponsored by EAM-Mosca of Mexico, Cartró, S.A.P.I. de C.V., and Cajas de Cartón Sultana, S.A. de C.V.

“The priority for Latin American Spanish translations set by AICC’s board of directors just makes sense in today’s competitive job market,” says AICC Vice President Mike D’Angelo. “AICC’s support of the ability to successfully train workers from throughout the hemisphere is another part of our value proposition to the independent converter and their suppliers.”

With more than 45 free courses currently online and 10 online courses to be translated into Spanish this year, AICC is the leading educator for independent corrugated, folding carton, and rigid box converters. AICC also offers classroom seminars and webinars, in addition to free online training to meet the needs of a rapidly changing industry.
