September 26, 2013 – Novi, Mich. –
i GET IT, the online self-paced training solution for engineers from
Tata Technologies, announced the addition of a series of Plastics training courses from Routsis, the premier training provider in the plastics industry, to its comprehensive
online knowledge management portfolio.
“Offering these industry-leading training courses is part of the overall strategy of expanding the i GET IT library to address all of the engineer’s training needs.” said Dan Miles, Vice President iProducts. “Beyond training and skills enhancement, i GET IT offers engineering professionals a full portfolio of courses and engineering support to keep individuals and organizations continuously increasing their productivity.”
“Our courses on plastics processing, part design and tooling are an excellent tool for engineers using the i GET IT platform,” said Andy Routsis, President – Routsis Training. “As the premier training provider for the plastics industry, it makes sense to partner with the number one provider of online training for engineers and management. This partnership provides engineering professionals even more resources accessible anytime, anywhere.”
The use of plastics in manufacturing is increasingly important as product development demands across industry segments demand viable alternative materials that are durable and lightweight. In the automotive industry, earlier this year, the National Academies of Science’s National Research Council (NRC) released a report noting that lightweight plastics and plastics composites are essential to helping automotive OEMs meet stringent CAFE, standards of 54.5 mpg by 2025. Supporting that report, plastics industry representatives emphasized plastics and plastics composites, can significantly lessen the load on a vehicle’s engine, which increases mileage and reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
Overall, the plastics industry is the third-largest manufacturing segment in the U.S., growing at 2.3 percent per year since 1980, compared with 1.9 percent per year growth for manufacturing as a whole over that same period, according to SPI, the plastics industry trade organization.
i GET IT offers more than 100,000 engineering professionals in more than 60 countries a full
portfolio of courses and engineering knowledge, online technical assistance and engineering information to support skills development and increase productivity. Routsis training is used in more than 3000 companies, including over 100 learning centers and educational institutions worldwide that use its interactive training programs as part of their standard curriculum. Routsis also is endorsed by the Society of Plastics Engineers.
