Holmesglen Tafe in Victoria is opening the doors to its recently completed digital print centre, allowing attendees to tour of its training facilities.
The event will be held on Thursday August 2, with visitors being invited to network and ask questions about the the print centre.
Holmesglen has recently completed its digital print centre, with the help of Konica Minolta, who supplied three of its presses, Ball & Doggett, who supply the paper for free, and DIC Inks, who supply the inks for free, for students to use in the lab to test and mix.
It has also been approved to teach Cert II in Printing to high school students, which was recently placed on a list of free courses. Students complete the qualification one day a week along with their other studies.

Homesglen's print training is now being directed by programme manager Paul Ross, who has around 40 years of industry experience, after predecessor Robert Black stepped down from the role after two years.
The Tafe takes students not only from Victoria, but also provides off-campus training to Tasmanian students, and has plans to take on South Australian, and Queensland students. It currently has 90 apprentices, up from 50 at this same time last year.
RSVP is open until the day before the event. Holmesglen says light refreshments will be provided at the event.
