This course provides comprehensive training for printing apprentices, and covers all practical and theoretical aspects of the trade, such as publishing, newspapers, magazines, and packaging.
Print is everywhere and is a global industry that utilises the most advanced digital technologies along with traditional print processes.
A printer is a highly skilled machinist operator.
Given the scope of what is being reproduced, a printer can operate machines that vary in size, systems, processes and capabilities.
The output may take the form of a brochure, booklet, magazine, newspaper, poster sign, label or package, all of which can require basic and advanced skills and knowledge.
Globally, new print technologies have a heavy reliance on computers, systems and processes aligned and integrated into traditional machinery.
The printer's workplace, large or small, is predominantly a clean indoor workplace, and processing manufacturing work is in comfortable work conditions.
