Color Management standardization and optimization of offset production

This is the highest level of color management knowledge. The course is designed for industry professionals who wish to be recognized as experts in the standardization and optimization of offset manufacturing. The training covers color management issues at all stages of printing reproduction, defining how to integrate and maintain proven best industry practices and standards. The training goes beyond the one-time calibration process, providing a comprehensive set of tools for building color management and process control from creation to printing.
This course will provide you with the ability to implement basic calibration and quality control procedures to manage your supply chain of printing products and fuel a production culture based on process control.

Main features:

  • This training course addresses the latest international and industrial standards
  • After successful completion of the training, assessed on the basis of the post-test result, each participant receives a certificate confirming the acquired knowledge.
  • It is part of a larger training program on standardization and optimization of printing production
