Press release from the issuing company

Alexandria, Va. – Idealliance has created a higher education membership program in order to directly support the great future of the graphic communications industry globally by providing access to all online certification courses at a membership cost that is essentially administrative cost only, and provides free access to everything that Idealliance has to offer.

Under the new program, students, professors, faculty, and anyone working in a vocational, higher education or educational/technical school print operation, gets total access to all Idealliance courses and everything that Idealliance produces at no cost to them.

Alexandra Batista, a senior student at Ryerson University in Toronto, who is soon to graduate with a BTech degree in Graphic Communications Management, upon hearing of this opportunity immediately enrolled in the Idealliance Color Management Professional certification.
