The Management and Technical Development Programmes pioneered by Western India Corrugated Box Manufacturers Association (WICMA) in 1991 have been receiving encouraging response, both from the Industry and others connected with the Corrugated Packaging Industry. WICMA has been organising Certificate Courses in Corrugated Packaging, which have been acclaimed by members, consumers and others connected with the Corrugated industry.

The first online course held in November 2020 got very good feedback. Many who had to miss the course have requested us to hold it again. The course is designed to suit the needs of those who are looking to set up their own box manufacturing plant and also those who are already part of this industry and looking to upgrade their knowledge.

The course will cover history of corrugated packaging, in-depth knowledge of paper, board and boxes, co-relation between paper properties and board properties, quality parameters of paper, board and box, adhesives, heating systems, printing and costing of corrugated boxes.

Recognition : Certificate based on attendance, participation, performance.
