Print Communications Professionals International (PCPI), the premier association dedicated to print buyers, in partnership with Print Buyers Online.com, a free, educational e-community for print buyers, announced the launch of their Advanced Print Production Certification program today.
The primary mission of PCPI (www.pcpi.org) is to develop and conduct certified training programs for major print media buyers and specifiers. These certified programs help PCPI members gain skills to improve the effectiveness of their print campaigns and to work with their suppliers more efficiently. This also aids buying companies by saving time and money through better return on investment (ROI) with their print campaigns. PCPI believes that their in-depth, professional certification programs will not only significantly help major buyers understand the opportunities for using proven business practices and technologies, but will also help establish a "best of breed" print buyer.
Suzanne Morgan, president and founder of PCPI and Print Buyers Online.com, commented, “This is an extraordinary opportunity for print buyers to receive advanced education that enables them to save significant time and money for their organizations. Not only is this a huge benefit for the buying company, but it also elevates the certified buyer at a time where many jobs are at risk.”
Some of the topics covered in the Advanced Print Production Certification program include:
- Web-to-print and online print procurement
- Digital print technologies
- Digital proofing
- Advanced color management
- Multi-channel marketing and how it relates to print
- New trends in print production
PCPI also offers certification in the following programs:
