Idealliance to host next G7 Colour course online

Following the success of its February online training course, Idealliance Australasia, the global standards developer and certifying body for ISO and G7 colour specification, will hold another G7 Expert five-day course commencing on 19 July.

David Crowther of Colour Graphic Services will once again conduct the course for four hours (10am to 2pm AEST) every day between 19 July and 23 July.

G7 is Idealliance’s global set of specifications for achieving visual similarity across all print processes currently being drafted into ISO 12647-2. 

Crowther said, “G7 Certification is a valuable qualification for anyone involved in graphic reproduction where colour is critical. It is the leading colour initiative in print consistency and near neutral appearance, and the G7 methodology specifies how to align any 4-colour CMYK print output to align all print technologies, regardless of where or how a product is printed.

“Lockdown time and home office isolation are ideal times to learn – and add the colour skills and certification that are increasingly recognised as essential by printers and brand managers.”

Training for the July interactive online sessions, which will occur over Zoom, will consist of a variety of components, including shared slides, video, whiteboard illustrations of critical concepts, press runs and print calibration simulations, plus hands-on activities and analysis.

Delegates on the course will receive a library of print resources, enabling participation in the instructor-led hands-on activities. Downloadable production resource materials such as G7 test forms help in learning how to implement G7 in workplace facilities, to obtain G7 Master qualification.

“Participants will also receive access to the extensive online training library including on-demand training recordings to view to support your continued growth as a G7 Expert. Participants are strongly encouraged to participate in hands-on activities utilising their own colour management tools and solutions,” Crowther added.

Pricingfor the five-day course is:

G7 Expert – Idealliance members US$2,149.00 / non-members US$2,619.00
G7 Professional – Idealliance members US$1,799.00 / non-members US$2,009.00
