In the printing industry, we usually use group events to train professionals who work in specialised departments. Our training courses, however, can also be attended on an individual basis. In addition to specialist departments, it has also been proven successful to train employees with direct customer contact, particularly on the basic subjects of colorimetry, special colours and standardisation.
