To give employees an overview of what is covered in our Print qualifications, we run a one-day introduction course.  The interactive, one-day workshop looks at the fundamentals of print, including processes, paper terminology, colour and finishing.

What’s covered:

  • The day begin by setting the scene for the context of the workshop around the printing sector and its importance as part of the manufacturing and creative industry.
  • Followed by the technical processes that are required for print, including the digital and analogue processes; how to design and create and a press ready document; file formats; proofing; colour; corrections; imposition schemes and different methods of working.
  • The workshop will be interactive with breakout sessions and videos throughout the day.
  • On completion of the course learners will be able to identify what processes are used for a given sample.

Who is this course for?

The course is for anyone that is new to the industry or looking to brush up on their skills.

“The Introduction to Print workshop is a fantastic way of developing the knowledge of your employees new to the printing industry. It was delivered by real print people with real print knowledge in a down to earth way. All my team have benefited greatly from this workshop. I can highly recommend the service’s provided by the BPIF.”
