Here at AstenJohnson we put safety first and are taking measures to minimize the risk of COVID-19. We know our customers are doing the same and we feel it's important to support these hard decisions.
Accordingly, we have decided to postpone the AJU Printing & Writing class scheduled to begin on Tuesday, April 21st.
Registrants who have paid by credit card will receive a full refund directly to the card. We will post the new dates as soon as we have them. People registered for the April 21st class will get priority seating for the new date.
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 printing and writing 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 3½ day training session has been created to address the needs of individuals relatively new to papermaking or papermaking roles, 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 on the fundamentals of papermaking and equipment will benefit from this session.
*Due to customer request, we have extended the session to give time for more in-depth discussion on each topic.
The tuition is $1,400 and covers your hotel room, meals and all training materials. You will be housed at the Hilton Garden Inn (Airport location). The only additional expense to you will be your travel costs to and from Charleston. AJU starts with a reception on Monday evening at 6:00 PM. Class will start at 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday, April 21 and concludes on Friday, April 24 at 11:00 a.m. Detailed logistics of the training will be provided upon your enrollment.
