9:00 AM Master Class A: Packaging Certification

Certification Program: Life-Cycle Development of Temperature Assurance Packaging (TAP)
The certification program aims to coach participants through the entire life-cycle of developing a Temperature Assurance Package (TAP) including considerations with regards to regulations, transportation/logistics, ambient profiles, operations, and packaging design. Prior to the conference you will be provided access to an online "Fundamentals" course.  This self-paced course offers participants a systematic approach to develop a foundational understanding of temperature assurance packaging.  This will allow participants to establish a core knowledge level and ensure a thorough understanding during the conference session.
 
At the conference will build from the knowledge learned during the "Fundamentals" course to transition into the "Professional" course.  This day-long session will be conducted by a diverse team of industry experts to guide discussion, provide instruction, and lead interactive activities.  The "Professional" course coaches participants through the entire life-cycle of developing a Temperature Assurance Package including considerations for regulations, transportation/logistics, ambient profiles, operations, and packaging design.
