Consumer Product Training Services

Knowledge and Skills for Your Company

Business Challenge

In the consumer and retail markets, understanding the quality assurance issues associated with a product can help shorten production cycles, control expenses, and assure customer satisfaction. However, gaining the expertise to adequately address these issues can require years of experience and on-the-job training.


What is Consumer Product Training? Consumer product training services are seminars that provide information on current quality assurance topics that affect your products in the consumer and retail markets. Sessions are available to help you and your company learn more about product safety and performance, regulatory and compliance requirements for a variety of products including softlines/textiles, toys, nursery products, hard goods and electrical goods. We have also seminars on ecodesign and corporate social responsibility.

How can companies use training to their advantage? Here are just a few examples of how companies have used training. Companies have educated their designers on regulatory and safety requirements to incorporate these into the initial design phase rather than redesign later. Others have learned about the latest trends such as nanotechnology and how they will apply to their products. While others have used training to better understand a particular process such as dyeing or finishing so they can communicate more effectively with their vendors to achieve desired quality results.
