G7 colour certification live courses will return online in February.
David Crowther of Colour Graphic Services and the Idealliance will run the programme. He says the refreshed and updated programme will provide certified training as G7 Expert or G7 Professional. It reflects all the latest developments in print technologies and colour management. In addition, he says Idealliance G7 certification is now a recognised qualification across multiple print disciplines – offset, digital, wide format, flexo and hybrid.

The multi-day training focuses on G7-based print and packaging applications, and G7 integration, maintenance, and process control across all print and proofing applications. Crowther says attendees will receive extensive practical hands-on demonstration, discussion, and collaboration to earn certification as G7 Experts.
He says, “Training consists of a variety of components. These include shared slides; video; whiteboard illustrations of critical concepts; press runs and print calibration simulations; and hands on analysis. Students are strongly encouraged to participate in hands-on activities utilising their own colour management tools and solutions.”
The training runs over five consecutive half-days. It features leading print technology, workflows, and solutions. Crowther says this gives attendees the experience and ability to implement and replicate the processes used during G7 training in their own facilities, using their own technology. He says, “It is very comprehensive and results in certification as either a G7 Expert or Professional qualification.”
Crowther says the training structure resembles a common print workflow. It includes content and supplemental resources from the G7 trainers and Idealliance. The training contains enhanced content on managing additional print. This includes meeting customer expectations in dealing with different substrate; uncoated vs coated stock; and specialty coatings. Also, they have updated the training content, reference material, and print standards resources. Crowther calls it a leading resource for print and colour supply chain control experts looking to establish themselves as recognised industry leaders.
