G7® Digital Press Operator Training Program - October 2013

G7® Digital Press Operator Training Program, presented by Printing Industries of America, a training program endorsed by IDEAlliance

October 8-9, 2013



You’ve attended the IDEAlliance G7® Expert/Professional Training program and received the all-important G7 Certification.


This additional training goes far beyond theory. It is the hands-on implementation of the G7 specification (TR015), and is specifically designed for digital press operators, managers, and consultants. This in-depth training program will explore all of the practical applications of executing and maintaining the conditions required for a successful G7 implementation within your digital printing operations—and more specifically—on particular pieces of equipment including toner-based presses and wide-format flatbed inkjet devices.


This two-day workshop takes place in the Printing Industries of America’s state of the art prepress and digital printing laboratories. You will receive intensive, detailed hands-on instruction to get you completely knowledgeable on how to implement the techniques listed below. Upon successful completion of the program, you will receive a G7® Digital Press Operator's certificate of completion by Printing Industries of America, endorsed by IDEAlliance.


Note: Because this training program is very hands-in in nature, class sizes will be limited. Please register early to avoid any disappointments!
