Education - the FINAT e-modules
The self-adhesive label sector continues to expand with new technologies, materials and external influences bringing about a diversity of exciting new innovations and formats. Keeping pace with accelerating change is a challenge for everyone in the industry. Education and training is critical in order to stimulate future growth and development. It is FINAT's role to raise awareness about the latest developments and versatility of the self-adhesive label and has commissioned a range of training modules from 4impression Training that can be used by members to brief their sales forces and, via them, existing and potential users of self-adhesive.
