Description

Graphic and Print Technician introduces students to the total printing production process from design and pre-press, through to printing and post press finishing operations. The program prepares students for the broad range of employment opportunities available in the design and printing industry.

Work Practicum

The unpaid Work Practicum normally takes place during the month following the last course of study.  A Work Practicum will be available to students that have met the employability skills outcomes of the program.

Students with overall achievement below 70% or that have issues which could limit their internship placement will be offered real-world projects within the classroom environment in place of a Work Practicum.
