Heidelberg has launched a series of practical training courses developed to help print production staff boost productivity.
The paid-for courses, which vary in length from one to two days, will cover areas including workflows, productivity, colour management, coating and drying, press operation and post-press operation.
Heidelberg technical specialist John Murphy said the courses would be hands-on as well as theory based, and would allow delegates to put what they learn into practice on Heidelberg kit.
“We will describe, then demonstrate, and then let them do it. Then we let them do it again. It’s important that they do it more times than we say it,” said Murphy.
He added that one of the main benefits of the Heidelberg training was that it takes place in a “learning environment” and will be in small groups, ranging from five to eight delegates.
“Often training on site is often compromised by distractions. The main benefit is creating a quiet space to learn and enjoy yourself,” he added.
While the majority of the courses are targeted at production operatives, training is also available on Heidelberg’s Analyze Point for directors and production managers. The course aims to teach users to interpret Analyze Point data to help “affect change.”
All of the training, which will run from September to next February, will take place at Heidelberg’s demo centre in Brentford. It will be carried out by different in-house specialists. The cost is £820 per day, but Murphy said discounts are available for multiple bookings.
