Idealliance to restart G7 colour courses in February

G7 colour certification live online courses are returning in 2022, conducted by David Crowther of Colour Graphic Services and Idealliance Australasia.

A refreshed and updated programme aims to provide certified training as G7 Expert or G7 Professional, reflecting all the latest developments in print technologies and colour management.

The next Zoom online G7 course is being held on February 21 to 25 and is open to all print professionals in Oceania and South East Asia.

The online training is offered over five consecutive half-days, 10am to 2pm AEST, and features leading print technology, workflows, and solutions to give students the experience and ability to implement and replicate the processes used during G7 training in their own facilities, using their own technology.

Crowther will lead this multi-day training focusing on G7 based print and packaging applications, and G7 integration, maintenance, and process control across all print and proofing applications through online learning. Attendees will receive extensive practical hands-on demonstration, discussion, and collaboration to earn certification as G7 Experts.

The structure of training is also designed to closely resemble a common print workflow, and includes additional content and supplemental resources from the G7 Trainers and Idealliance.

The training includes enhanced content on managing additional print, including meeting customer expectation in dealing with different substrates, uncoated vs coated stock, and specialty coatings.

Training content, reference material, and print standards resources have also been updated to remain as a resource for print and color supply chain control experts looking to establish themselves as recognised industry leaders.

Idealliance G7 certification is now a recognised qualification across multiple print disciplines – offset, digital, wide format, flexo and hybrid.

“Training consists of a variety of components, including 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. It’s very comprehensive and results is certification as either a G7 Expert or Professional qualification,” Crowther said.

The cost for the five-day course is between US$1,799 and US$2,619, depending on whether it is ‘Expert’ or ‘Professional’ certification and if a student or company is an Idealliance member.
