The home of the Canadian Plastics Training Centre (CPTC) is at the Humber Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning in Toronto, Ontario. Plast-Ex 2004 visitors will be able to explore first hand the training and learning services available through this center of training excellence.

The CPTC will be on hand to address the industry’s training needs from Booth # 720-6 at the Canadian Plastics Industry Association (CPIA) Solutions Centre, a 3,600 sq. ft. exhibit area designed to create a one-stop-shop of services for Canada’s plastics industry.

"We are delighted to have the CPTC with us at the Solutions Centre," said CPIA president Serge Lavoie. "Their offering of customized training solutions for injection molding and related technologies brings significant value to the broad range of services we are featuring at the Solutions Centre."

Other Solutions Centre exhibitors include: The Canadian Plastics Sector Council; the Society of Plastics Engineers; Canada Revenue Agency; and the National Research Council, Industrial Materials Institute.

In addition to in-house, full time training programs and a continuing education and seminar series, CPTC offers assessment tools that test an employee’s level of knowledge in injection molding and equipment maintenance.

"These assessments are designed for either production staff or maintenance staff," said CPTC General Manager, David Alcock. "Upon completion of the individual assessments, the CPTC staff prepares a summary report that provided a detailed breakdown of the strengths and weaknesses of those who have been assessed."

To date over 5,000 learners have improved their skills through the CPTC’s training programs. "As a result of our training, clients have realized real cost savings and performance improvements," said Alcock.

Plast-Ex 2004 will take center stage at the International Centre in Toronto, Ontario from May 3 to 6, 2004. The show is owned and operated by CPIA, a national industry association representing the interests of raw material suppliers, processors, equipment suppliers, mould makers and plastics industry service groups.
