Event Description
Consider this scenario... 

You or one of your employees is fairly new to kraft operations.  You could:

  1. Find the training needed if there's production downtime or staff resources available; or
  2. Gain a broad understanding of kraft operations in just 2 days from someone who has taught this subject to students, technical mill personnel, and mill operators for more than 40 years.

Wouldn't you choose Option 2?

This course can help you change your Kraft Operations for the better. 
Better workdays.  Better operations.  Better performance.
