Online Gravure Training
Deepen Your Gravure Expertise
Certified operators and team members are essential to both short-term and long-term gravure success for several reasons.
First, you can be assured that their training is complete and covers the whole breadth of gravure printing concerns and techniques – as opposed to those operators who learned only part of the industry while working in a gravure print shop, or salespeople who may have only limited knowledge of technical processes.
What’s more, certified team members at every level not only understand the gravure process, they also understand the safety and environmental regulations that are part of first-class gravure print operations.
This translates to better efficiency, stricter regulatory compliance, and enhanced working conditions for all who come in contact with your entire gravure printing team.
Besides these internal benefits, certified team members are a competitive advantage that let your clients know that only experts will be handling their projects, thus minimizing the chance for errors, waste, delays, and additional expense. In other words, certification for your team members may be just the extra push your business needs to land new clients and enhance profitability.
GAA Certification is a rigorous process available across three levels, each designed to address the knowledge and practical competencies needed in a variety of roles – new or novice press operators, advanced or senior press operators, and sales and customer service personnel. Completing the appropriate level or levels of courses instills confidence in team members and end-users alike, and our certification specialists are on hand to help you and your team earn your certification today.
