The Certificate III in Print Manufacturing provides comprehensive training for printing manufacturing apprentices and covers all practical and theoretical aspects of the print manufacturing trade streams, such as finishing, binding, folding, gluing, cutting, embellishing and corrugating.

Print and manufacturing is everywhere and is a global industry, that utilises the most advanced converting technologies, integrating traditional print processes.

Given the scope of what is being manufactured, a print manufacturing apprentice can operate machinery that vary in size, systems, processes and capabilities.

The output may take the form of a brochure, book, box, label or package, all of which can require basic and advanced skills and knowledge. Packaging, converting and finishing is a unique requirement of the manufacturing process.

Globally, new technologies have a heavy reliance on computers, systems and processes aligned and integrated into traditional machinery.

The print manufacturing workplace can be large or small, it is predominantly a clean indoor workplace, and processing manufacturing work is in comfortable work conditions.
