G7 is Idealliance’s global set of specifications for achieving visual similarity across all print processes currently being drafted into ISO 12647-2. Crowther, aka the Colour Doctor, says: “G7 Certification is a valuable qualification for anyone involved in graphic reproduction where colour is critical.

“It is the leading colour initiative in print consistency and near neutral appearance, and the G7 methodology specifies how to align any four-colour CMYK print output to align all print technologies, regardless of where or how a product is printed.

“Lockdown time and home office isolation are ideal times to learn – and add the colour skills and certification that are increasingly recognised as essential by printers and brand managers.”

The July interactive online training, using Zoom, takes place over five consecutive days, for four hours per day, so printers still have time to attend to work, production and/or personal matters.

Training consists of a variety of components, including shared slides, video, whiteboard illustrations of critical concepts, press runs and print calibration simulations, plus hands-on activities and analysis.

Delegates on the course will receive a library of print resources, enabling participation in the instructor-led hands-on activities. Downloadable production resource materials such as G7 test forms help in learning how to implement G7 in workplace facilities, to obtain G7 Master qualification.

“Participants will also receive access to the extensive online training library including on-demand training recordings to view to support your continued growth as a G7 Expert. Participants are strongly encouraged to participate in hands-on activities utilising their own colour management tools and solutions," says Crowther.

Seats are kept to a low number to ensure direct support by Idealliance’s certified G7 Expert trainer and technical staff. Seats are currently still available.

The July schedule runs Monday 19 to Friday 23 July between 10am and 2pm on all days.

Pricing, in US dollars, for the five-day course is $1799 for G7 Professional if you are an Idealliance member, $2009 if not, and for the G7 Expert it is $2149 for Idealliance members, $2619 if not.
