Target Audience

The target audience for this course are all those who have to operate a printing press and need to understand what is happening on the press, and the factors that affect the performance of the process.

Initial research has indicated that people who consider themselves as competent typically score 40% in knowledge tests. The aim is to increase this level of retained knowledge to better than 85%. Supervisors score slightly higher than operators but managers often lower. This shows that everyone will benefit from the course.

The lessons are applicable to every learner no matter what their specialist sector. The intention is to give the learner an understanding of other screen printing methods as well as the aspects of the process that are common to all.

There are lessons that go into the specifics of particular systems and techniques used in the various sectors.

Course Structure

The screen printing course is split into lessons. Each lesson deals with one aspect of the screen printing process. You have up to 2 months to work through the lessons and complete the exam at the end of the course.

As you work through each lesson you will take part in a series of tests, these tests are designed to help you remember key facts from the lesson.

You can re-read a lesson at any time during the course, and a Tutor is available via email to answer any of your questions.

Once you have gone through all the lessons, you will take a final examination. You will not be able to access the rest of the course during the exam and you will need to achieve an 85% pass mark to gain a certificate.
