Pittsburgh, Pa. – Printing Industries of America is pleased to announce the launch of its newly redeveloped iLearning Center now a complimentary member benefit for its printer members at non-additional charge. Joe Marin, Vice-President of Education and Training, focused on revamping the program upon his return to PIA in the summer of 2017. The new iLearning Center features better content, organization, and an improved learning management system that greatly improves the online education experience.
"There are many online education programs out there, but the iLearning Center directly benefits our members by providing courses that are most relevant for the printing industry-based learner." said Marin. "More importantly, it gives employers the opportunity to train their staff with the latest techniques and skills quickly and efficiently from any computer or mobile device anywhere, anytime, and at their convenience without time spent away from the workplace.”
All of the new iLearning Center's core courses are entirely free to PIA's printer member companies and include titles such as:
- Orientation to the Graphic Arts
- Adobe Lightroom
- Adobe InDesign for Prepress
- Adobe Illustrator for Prepress
- Adobe Photoshop for Prepress
- SEO Basics
- Data Demo: Making It Relevant
- Sheetfed Offset Lithographic Press

Additional courses will be added throughout 2018. The iLearning Center also offers important industry certifications like the Improvement Professional in Print (IPP) Certification and newly developed Customer Service Professional (CSP) Certification, a program that provides best industry processes and practices for CSRs in a production print environment.
