Plastics Technicians

Advancement Prospects

Experienced and well-trained plastics technicians have excellent opportunities for advancement. Some manufacturers conduct in-plant training programs, and many provide incentives for technicians to continue their education at accredited schools. An employee with sales or customer service potential is trained in various manufacturing aspects before joining the sales or service division. Those with advanced education may become involved in supervisory or management capacities, quality control, purchasing, or cost estimating. Plastics technicians who are especially creative may work hand in hand with customers as designers of products and molds, or, with advanced training, as plastics engineers.
