Training and seminars

Training and competence are critical factors for business and profitability. 

Our Norner Academy training and seminars are specialised programmes and customised to each client or group. We will organise these in good dialogue and planning with our client in order to create an interesting training content.

Typical participants for these courses are Production Personnel, Product Designers and Developers, Packaging Developers, Sales and Marketing, Purchasing, Technologists in the plastics industry or others who deal with plastics in their work.

These programmes can cover a wide range of subjects in the field of polymer technology based in individual requirement at our client and different level of complexity. Some relevant subjects of the plastics technology are:

  • Polymer structure and properties
  • Circular economy and material recycling
  • Polymer technology, production and markets
  • Plastics end use applications and requirements
  • Additives for the plastic industry
  • Plastics processing technologies and applications

Our modular portfolio of plastics technology courses will strengthen the qualifications of the participants in plastics, technology and markets, processing techniques, end use applications and recycling.

A Norner Academy program can be arranged at the site of the customer or in the labs and facilities of Norner depending on facilities required. Our training will be tailor made to cover high level insight for management, specific technologies for technical organisations, testing and lab methods for experts as well as training for non-plastic professionals.

This is a unique opportunity to tailor high quality training and tutorials for your needs.  We offer platform based courses: Introduction, advanced and tutorial courses and seminars.
