TAPPI’s Introduction to Kraft Pulping and Bleaching Course is offered for the first time in a virtual format beginning in September.

Register now to reserve your place with peers adn instructor, Dr. Michael Kocurek.

This training is patterned after the well-attended, annual course and includes:

Pre-Course Survey
In order to build the best foundation for more advanced topics that are most important to you, Dr. Michael Kocurek conducts a pre-course survey before the virtual training begins to determine:

  • What are your specific learning objectives and what would you like to take away?
  • What is a specific technology related “hot topic” for your mill or company?
  • What process related troubleshooting topic would you like to see discussed as a basic level case study?
  • Your answers will contribute to some customization, within the scope and available time, to increase the value of the course. 

Video Modules
Participants who register will then receive several self-paced, pre-recorded lectures each week, which can be viewed with flexibility within the participant’s schedule. These lectures will be supplemented with a wealth of instructional visuals from Dr. Kocurek's vast collection of materials that he has amassed from more than ten years in teaching this particular curriculum.

Classwork Study Guides
Assignments and course notes will be provided with each learning module.  The notes will serve as valuable reference materials later back at work when participants apply newly acquired information and practices into action.

Live Group Discussions
At the end of each week, participants will join a live group discussion moderated by Dr. Kocurek where they can ask questions and learn from others participating in the conversation.

Course Evaluation
As with all TAPPI training events, participants will have the opportunity to provide feedback about the learning outcomes, quality of the instruction and content of the curriculum.

CEUs Awarded
Participants who complete the Introduction to Kraft Pulping and Bleaching Virtual training can receive 1.3 Continuing Education Credits (CEUs).

TAPPI Professional Certificate
Participants will have the opportunity to take the TAPPI Professional Certificate test once the coursework is complete.  A TAPPI Professional Certificate shows accomplishment and understanding of the learning outcomes.

Who should attend?
This course is ideal for anyone new to the kraft pulping process, particularly process engineers and operators.
