ProMolder 3 – Paulson’s highest level certification seminar.

Paulson’s most advanced injection molding course. Through intensive machine time and use of our unique injection molding simulator SimTech™, ProMolder 3 is the most thorough and technically accurate training available in the industry. Based on the science of injection molding, Paulson’s focus is on the four basic variables as they interact with machine controls. Paulson teaches molding from the “plastic’s point of view” as running a series of machine capability tests is only a beginning step in becoming a molding expert. If you are a user of Scientific Molding techniques ProMolder 3 will take you to the next level in truly understanding molding from a scientific perspective. All Paulson seminars and courseware are vendor neutral.


Our highest possible certification level, ProMolder 3, will teach you the “why” behind injection molding. Featuring 20+ hours of machine and simulator time, ProMolder 3 will make you an expert molder. Cycle optimization and advanced problem solving skills require knowledge and the practice. ProMolder 3 provides plenty of both. The skills you acquire will allow you to confidently make production floor decisions that decrease downtime and increase productivity.

Certification: Paulson Training Programs has an excellent reputation for developing highly qualified injection molding personnel who are sought after by the industry. To maintain this quality we test each student at the end of the course with a written exam. Grades 90% and above will earn a Gold Certificate of Achievement; 80% – 89% a Silver Certificate of Achievement; those achieving a 70%-79% will earn a Blue Certificate of Achievement, and all others earn a Certificate of Attendance.
