Becoming a JDF Expert
Readers of The Big Picture receive $20 off each IPA training module
Looking to lead your own company's efforts into JDF? You may want to begin with some in-depth training. To that end, CIP4 has partnered with the Association of Graphic Solutions Providers (IPA), to offer a "JDF Expert Certificate" program.
Students who complete the entire JDF Expert Certificate program (composed of 13 separate training modules) will better understand how process automation can meet company requirements; gain insight into strategies to migrate to a JDF-enabled environment; and learn how to read JDF and understand how the data flow can be leveraged to improve the process. The program concludes with a test that participants must pass to achieve the JDF Expert Certificate. Program content was developed by CIP4, while IPA will produce, market, and administer the program and testing.
Live modules for the JDF program end in July, but recorded modules are available on-demand or on CD. Price: $145 per module or $1570 for the set of 13. Big Picture readers can receive $20 off the per-module price by going to www.ipa.org/webinars/bigpicture. (Association of Graphic Solutions Providers, www.ipa.org)
