EFI has announced a new certification training program for its Fiery digital print servers, tools, and software options.

Designed for new and existing Fiery users, Fiery Certification consists of two tracks: Fiery Professional Certification and Fiery Expert Certification.

The Fiery Professional Certification is designed to establish solid foundational skills on Fiery functionality such as optimal system configuration, print-job management, automated workflows, color profiles, and calibration. The curriculum consists of 15 self-paced online courses and a certification exam. It’s an entirely Web-based program.

The Fiery Expert Certification builds on the Fiery Professional Certification and provides in-depth training on more advanced topics such as the use of advanced Fiery imposition and variable-data-printing tools, PDF workflow optimization, complex late-stage color editing, JDF workflow integration, and more. Fiery Expert Certification offers a blended training approach with five online courses, two days of intensive hands-on classroom training, and an online certification exam.

“Users will benefit by having an official certification program that helps them maximize the productivity of their people and the performance of their existing digital engines,” says John Henze, vice president of Fiery marketing, EFI. “Fiery Certification is an investment that returns real value to the business with the enhanced skill set of its Fiery certified employees. Increased staff know-how can allow print providers to increase operation efficiency, reduce errors, cut waste, and produce higher quality, higher-profit variable data or complex document assembly jobs.”

Price: $250, Fiery Professional Certification; $750, Fiery Expert Certification.
