Users can access full prepress and graphics library for a year
At the upcoming Graph Expo show in Chicago, the StaffingTools.com online testing, training and certification service will promote its new Prepress Training Solution. The new program is geared toward premedia and printing firms that want to train staffers to maximize the potential of their software. Subscribers to the Prepress Training Solution have unlimited, 12-month access to any or all of the courses in StaffingTools' online prepress and graphics training library. A hosted Learning Management System enables managers to track employee progress.
Employees can learn at their own pace any time of the day or any day of the week. After the employee takes a pre-test, the StaffingTools Learning Management System creates a custom curriculum so the employee doesn't waste time learning things that he or she already knows. Upon completion of the course, the employee takes a post-test and receives a printable certificate of completion if the post-test results are better than the pre-test results.
Courses are available in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign, Extensis Mask Pro and Preflight Pro, QuarkXPress, Creo Preps, Adobe Acrobat, Markzware FlightCheck, and Enfocus PitStop and Instant PDF. Topics include color management, font management, scanning and color correction, and compositing images.
The Prepress Training Solution starts at $300 per user, with volume discounts available. (StaffingTools.com: 800-355-6429; www.staffingtools.com)
