Convergence Training expands pulp & paper industry course

Convergence Training, a leading producer of industrial training products and operational efficiency tools, announced the addition of 30 new titles to their pulp & paper training course catalog. The computer-based courses, which include titles such as "Tissue Making Basics" and "Yankee Dryer Safety", are designed to provide foundational knowledge of pulp, paper, tissue, and corrugated manufacturing processes and equipment. The new courses reflect a recent initiative intended to grow Convergence Training's pulp & paper catalog to 200 courses by the end of 2014.

Each 10-40 minute course features a combination of video-based instruction and interactive knowledge reviews. Course topics vary in detail, from general paper machine safety to more specific topics such as wet end chemistry and forming fabric design. The courses provide an introduction to common pulp and paper manufacturing and converting processes and target newly hired workers, sales and marketing teams, and even experienced personnel starting new positions within a plant.

"Manufacturers are always looking for ways to speed up onboarding or plant startups," says Randy Kohltfarber, Convergence Training Owner and President. "These courses explain, very effectively, and with great visual presentation, the key stages of the paper or tissue or corrugated board manufacturing process. It’s a really efficient way to make sure that your entire team fully understands the function and hazards of each piece of equipment in your plant."

Convergence Training is a familiar name in the pulp and paper industry, having long produced highly-customized operations and process training for industry leading manufacturers. "We’ve been doing this a long time," says Kohltfarber. "The custom training we produced in the past is usually machine-specific to our clients, however, we always knew there was an opportunity to create affordable, paper-specific training material for the broader industry."

The inspiration for the new courses was drawn from decades of industry experience and customer feedback, and the content itself was developed by Convergence Training’s long-tenured and highly-experienced team of industry veterans, 3D animators, and media professionals. As Kohltfarber explains, "We’re in a unique position to be able to make really effective training on these subjects that can have a significant impact on safety, maintenance, and operational efficiency."

The 30 new courses are available now from Convergence Training’s paper, box, and tissue training catalog. Short previews for each title and pricing info can be found on the Convergence Training website.
