How do I register my employee for PDP courses?
You have two options to register your employee for ISTA Packaging Dynamics Professional (PDP) courses.
1) You can have them sign up as an Associate member to your organization. The fee for ISTA Associate members is $160 - giving them access to all the unique features and benefits ISTA members enjoy, including discounts on ISTA Courses and events. You can have your employee register for membership here https://mms.ista.org/members/newmem/registration.php?orgcode=ISTA&fmt=M6 Once their registration is complete they will have access to the ISTA Member Center and be able to register for courses, events or access the data available to ISTA Members.
2) PDP training is now available to non ISTA members via a Guest Education account. This type of account will allow your employee to purchase and take ISTA courses with in the Online Learning Center. This account type only has access to the Online Learning Center and does not receive any of the additional benefits and access an ISTA member has. The Guest Education account is free and you can register for this type of account here https://ista.org/online_learning_access.php
