Army Sustainment Command’s Packaging, Storage and Containerization Center (PSCC) is the DoD source for military packaging training. Its packaging design course, also known as PACK 2, is the only program of instruction in the DoD that trains personnel in developing military-specific packaging solutions.
During the eight-day course, students learn a variety of topics including identifying and understanding item characteristics, environmental considerations, shock and vibration, storage and transportation considerations, packaging materials, container design and selection, packaging documentation, and package validation, testing and safety. Emphasis is placed on the selection of cushioning and packaging materials to provide protection to military items until they are ready for use, while minimizing cost and retaining the required performance.
Prospective students can enroll in the FY24 PACK 2 courses on the Army Training Requirements and Resources System (ATRRS). Two options are available:
  • Class 001: 16-25 April 2024
  • Class 002:  4-13 June 2024
