The Adhesive and Sealant Council (ASC) announces its Training Academy schedule for 2014 which will include 14 new program titles that includes a blend of 101/201 training, business trends webinars and value-added regulatory topics.
The Training Academy will begin its third year by investing in new content and offering new value via business trends and strategic driver oriented education.
“The 2014 Training Academy schedule includes a solid line up of training that focuses on stronger technical programming featuring several 201level training that will provide more depth to support the needs of bench chemists and engineers,” notes Matthew E. Croson, President of ASC. “It will also include more general business trends sessions that are supportive of our market oriented technical teams, and even a few sessions that will be free to members only, including two regulatory focus webinars and overviews of the Council’s new market reports on Latin America and PSA in North America.”
The Training Academy was started in 2012 by the ASC Board of Directors as a way to train new employees, or new to industry professionals, on the basics of the industry’s chemistries and business dynamics. In the first two years, the Training Academy has delivered training to approximately 700 adhesive and sealant professionals, including members and non-members, making it one of the most successful new programs developed by the Council. With the new programming developed for 2014, the Council is continuing to invest in this program to deliver even stronger technical content, including its first Sealants 101 course, and four new 201 level courses designed for technical team members.
“ASC’s Training Academy is designed to keep any industry professional up to speed on the technical side of the business, while also keeping mind the market dynamics that drive innovation,” adds Croson. “The 14 new titles join the 14 existing programs sessions, making the ASC Training Academy one of the more powerful, moderately priced training programs available to members and the industry at large.”
