Print Basics Schedule

The Print Basics program provides a tailored mix of online and in-person learning over five months. Here’s what you can expect throughout the course:

 

Month 1:

One month before the in-person learning event, participants will attend a virtual orientation detailing the next five months of peer-to-peer learning. Prior to joining the live event, attendees will receive a handful of assignments to level-set their knowledge. These assignments may include webinars, articles, facilitator introductions, and more. 

 

Month 2:

Print Basics participants will then dive directly into content at the three-day, in-person event. The program consists of a range of experts in the print field, who will lead the group through dynamic lectures and thought-provoking group discussion. At the conclusion of the training, participants will take a short post-event exam.

 

Months 3 and 4:

Following the training, attendees will remain in contact via discussion groups and online learning. The group can lean on one another for industry specific questions, while continuing to grow its knowledge base.

 

Month 5:

At the conclusion of the Print Basics program, participants will take an open-book final assessment and participate in a virtual graduation. They will receive a certificate of attendance to share with employers and networks.
