Printing SA Provides Quality, Demand-Driven Education

Printing SA offers a wide range of courses and learning programmes designed to meet the needs of the printing, packaging, signage, and visual communications industry. These courses may be facilitated on-line or face-to-face.

Our range of Introduction courses have been developed to properly prepare new entrants to the industry for the world of work and to excite them about the prospect of taking up a career in this vibrant industry.

Our Regional Chambers have a range of talent selection tools available to assist with the recruitment and placement of such new entrants. These tools include the HFM Talent Index online assessment application for screening, interviewing, and selecting talent as well as colour vision assessments and criminal checks. Do not hesitate to contact your Regional Chamber should you wish to make use of this professional service.

Our Technical courses include our Technical Theoretical Modules for Apprentices which are now presented via our dual system of learning. Apprentices attend classes online for two days per week while receiving practical skills training and structured experiential training, at their workplaces, during the balance of the week. We have also introduced a wide range of short learning programmes, which are aligned to new QCTO trade and occupational qualifications that will be rolled out over the next few years.

Our Colour Management eLearning, which has proved to be popular with our fellow FESPA Associations around the world, and our print and pre-press specific Adobe Creative Cloud blended eLearning courses are also aligned to the curriculum specifications of the Electronic Pre-press Technician qualifications that will be launched during the second half of 2022.

Our Administrative courses have been designed to prepare up and coming Managers for their pivotal role with our brand-new Team Leader programme. We have partnered with the Cape Peninsular University of Technology (CPUT) to offer a new 10-month Management Development Programme (MDP). The good news is that MDP graduates will gain subject credits toward the Diploma in Printing Management offered by CPUT. The MDP and the Diploma in Printing Management subjects will be offered online by CPUT.

Please contact your Regional Chamber should you wish to book any of the courses, detailed in this prospectus and on our website, on alternative dates to those scheduled during 2022.
All learner enrolments are done via our website: www.printingsa.org/services/training Additional courses will run based on Industry demand that meets the minimum number of learners required per course.

Printing SA, in partnership with the FP&M SETA, regularly offer bursaries for our various courses. Please contact your Regional Chamber for more information regarding the availability of bursaries.
