Convergence Paper Training Catalog Continues to Grow


The new courses just keep on coming. We’re in the middle of a year-long push to produce over 200 new paper manufacturing training courses. We’re releasing about 50 new courses each quarter until the end of 2014. The first 50 courses, which include our new Introduction to Paper and Board Machines, Recausticizing Fundamentals, and Continuous Cooking Introduction courses, are available now and provide expert instruction on many complex paper manufacturing processes.

The new courses are between 10-40 minutes each in length, and feature a combination of video-based instruction and interactive knowledge assessments. Each is designed using our signature blend of true-to-life 3D models and striking motion graphics.

Our paper training course catalog targets newly hired workers, sales and marketing teams, and experienced personnel starting new positions within a plant. Facilities looking to train up replacements for older, retiring employees can make use of our content to reduce the amount of time it takes to get a newer, less-experienced workforce up-to-speed on the intricacies of the paper manufacturing process.

View our entire library of Pulp, Paper, Tissue, and Corrugated training materials, as well as our OSHA Health & Safety and our Operations & Maintenance course libraries, on our website.
