The UK Packaging Society (formerly the Institute of Packaging) runs a range of courses covering packaging topics including pharmaceutical packaging; however it does not run a medical device packaging course. In the United States, the Institute of Packaging Professionals runs a short course titled “Fundamentals of Packaging Technology”. Conferences and Seminars can be a good source of general medical packaging information. UBM Canon run a series of medical device and packaging trade shows and seminars, all of which can be a source of helpful information.
Some of us honed our packaging skills by reading the trade journals and gaining hands on experience, others spent a few years in college before practising their art. It does mean that to gain an in depth knowledge of medical device packaging takes time. It may be appropriate for you to have a short course tailored to deal with the specific needs of your company, your products and your resources.
