The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) has announced that Joanne Cockerill is the latest recipient of the Certified Packaging Professional (CPP) designation.
Cockerill has been involved in the industry for over 16 years, specifically in packaging development, mainly in aseptic packaging, aluminium cans, flexibles, corrugated, FFS tubs and lids, paperboard cartons, glass/plastic bottles, caps and labels.
The graduate of the Diploma in Packaging Technology wanted to achieve the highest possible accreditation within her packaging studies. “Attaining packaging education is very important to me,” she said. “I was attracted to the fact that the Certified Packaging Professional designation is globally recognised and accepted wherever I choose to go.
“As an individual it is extremely important to understand theoretically what I produce day-to-day at work and have a detailed understanding of all formats of packaging. I am now very proud to be able to add CPP to the end of my title as a packaging professional, which will enable me to work anywhere in the world where the accreditation is recognised by the IoPP, AIP and WPO,” she added.
AIP says attaining the CPP designation is an excellent investment in professional development as the credential defines the packaging professional and allows organisations to seek out and hire the right professional based on verified knowledge, skills and industry contributions.
“Using the CPP program to assess and evaluate one’s professional competency validates you as internationally proficient as a packaging professional; a cut above your peers,” noted a spokesperson. The Certified Packaging Professional (CPP) designation is a registered trademark of the Institute of Packaging Professionals (IoPP) and is now internationally recognised by both IoPP and AIP.
