Industry-leading experts provide courses in color management.
The Association of Graphic Solutions Providers (IPA) has launched its Color Management Professional certification program. For print professionals as well as creative, photography, prepress, and pre-media professionals, the program is designed to help users gain knowledge in the principles of color-management.
The CMP certification program is comprised of a series of online instructional courses designed by industry-leading color-management experts, using advanced online training technology with 24/7 access to all courses and exams. This content is regularly updated to reflect changing technology and best practices.
The first course in the program, "Color Management Fundamentals," is a comprehensive 17-lesson, six-hour course that describes the principles of color management in a graphic-communication production environment. Additional courses will be offered for "Professional" Certification in creative, photography, prepress and/or pre-media specialties in October 2008. Each course contains both education and testing, including an online practicum demonstration.
