SOLD OUT 2014 AJU Packaging Session #2 @ Charleston, SC
Jun 24 @ 2:00 pm – Jun 26 @ 6:00 pm

AstenJohnson University (AJU) was established in 2005 as one way to invest in the development of future papermakers and to provide a forum for learning and sharing of common business practices. This AJU session will focus on issues associated with the packaging grade. By concentrating on a specific paper grade, we will be able to provide students with specific, applicable information that can be put into practice immediately upon returning to the mill. We will discuss actual papermaking experiences in class, so we encourage participants to bring examples of past problems or current challenges to explore in class.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

This training session has been created to address the needs of individuals relatively new to papermaking, those with one to five years of experience in a mill. This training is well suited for new process engineers and technicians as well as new machine operators and new shift managers.  Additionally, those with extensive hands-on experience but little formal technical training will benefit from this session.

THE COST

The tuition is $900 and covers your hotel room, meals and all training materials. You will be housed at the Hyatt Place and transported to and from training sessions and meals. The only additional expense to you will be your travel costs to and from Charleston. Class will start at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, June 24 and conclude at 12 noon on Thursday, June 26 at our Charleston campus. Detailed logistics of the training will be provided upon your enrollment. The registration form should be completed and returned to your AstenJohnson sales representative or to Sue McCann.
