The professional profile   of “senior  product and process technician”  in the rubber and plastics industry was introduced in Italy in 2012 under the recent reform of the national higher education and training system.

In fall 2013 the first post-diploma education year was launched by the ITS Foundation in San Paolo d’ Argon (BG) and the educational path related to materials, machines and equipment for the plastics and rubber industry has been developed by CESAP who provides this pathway also at its site.

In October 2014 the second 2-years course has been added to the program.

In July 2015 the first 15 graduates took the final examination and were placed into employment.

In November 2016 the fourth 2-years course has started with twenty members.
