Press release from the issuing company
ARLINGTON, Va. (November 1, 2007) - Print Buyers Online.com, a free, educational e-community for print buyers, print communications professionals and their suppliers in partnership with Print Communications Professionals International (PCPI), the premier association dedicated to print buyers, are proud to present their 2007 Print Buyer Certification Roadshow hosted by Heidelberg USA on November 14, 2007 in Kennesaw, Georgia near Atlanta.
Print Buyers Online.com and PCPI have created a top quality certification program available for production professionals entitled Professional Print Production Certification (the core certification for print buyers). This certification is highly regarded and gives print buyers a way to document their knowledge and add value in their organizations. They have taken this regional program on the road to conduct certification in several cities in the US over the next several months.
"We are thrilled to bring this intensive certification program to print buyers and suppliers across the country. Each participant is working towards getting their PPPC 'letters' (Professional Print Production Certification) that prove their salt in print buying and production," said Suzanne Morgan, president and founder of Print Buyers Online.com and PCPI.
Print Buyers Online.com is pleased to have Heidelberg USA as the host with Printing Impressions magazine as the media sponsor. To keep current with the constantly changing print media industry, Heidelberg founded the Print Media Academy. The Print Media Academy is a forum where trends and new techniques are discussed in a relaxed environment with direct connection to real life practice and experience. This event features a Print Media Academy show room demo and tour, followed by a reception and lunch courtesy of Heidelberg USA. Heidelberg experts will be on hand to speak on how to better control print quality and work more successfully with print suppliers.
Certification roadshows are open to both print buyers and suppliers. Registration includes:
• Professional Print Production Certification Self-study Program: complete kit includes a printed study guide, learning resources and pass/fail open book test
• Full-day, supplemental educational seminar from a dynamic speaker
• Networking session with peers in our open-forum "Think Tank"
The cost of the certification roadshow including self-study program materials, full-day supplemental educational seminar and networking session is $499 per person. Seating is limited and registration ends November 12, 2007.
