/Article Photos/book binding.jpgThe printing industry has a shortage of highly qualified post press and finishing technicians that can operate machines competently and had the capability to apply preventive maintenance properly. The increased use of electronic computers to drive equipment and post press machines and other new technologies requires that existing employee skills be upgraded.
Majority of printing industry practitioners learned the trade and profession through years of actual learning experience and immersion on the different stages of printing processes. This is done without the benefit of a systematic and organized training method. An on-the-job training can present some problems. In industry’s efforts to improve quality, many managers have learned that while most employees genuinely want to produce quality work, they often do not have the necessary skills to get the job done. Such know-how can be learned effectively and efficiently through training. With a broad base of knowledge, every worker can work smarter and efficiently produce a product or intermediate that is correct the first time and every time with less wastages.
In line with the above, PPTF has scheduled its Third Comprehensive Technical Upgrade Workshop Seminar on Post Press & Finishing Technology scheduled to start on May 30 and will end up on June 3, 2017 (1:00pm to 5:00pm). It is 5 days of workshop sessions.


It’s a bumper Golden Anniversary edition loaded with stories, ideas, inspiration, technical tips and techniques for today’s modern printer!
