INX University expands remote learning experience
INX International Ink Co. is now offering its INX University, ink industry eLearning resource, as free remote courses in eight languages.
The metal inks and colour management technologies company says it has designed the course to help customers better understand a wide range of ink and colour topics, INX U provides a unique experience for metal decorators interested in enhancing their professional development.
Sarah Jacks, manager – INX Color Perfection, said: “INX U really helps educate anyone involved in the design and production of metal packaging. It covers topics ranging from the basics of ink and troubleshooting, to a wide variety of insight for colour management knowledge.”
“For example, our two-piece Metal Decorating program has seven colour and production courses. Colour management is an important consideration since printers are now expected to provide their customers with consistent quality to meet exact specifications. That’s evolved on a global level in the last few years. It’s also why it was important for us to update our metal decorating troubleshooting app to be available in more languages as well.”
In addition to English, courses are available in two Spanish language versions – Latin American (Español) and Castilian, which is spoken in Spain – as well as French, German, Italian, Polish and Portuguese. INX hears from customers on a regular basis, with comments ranging from praise to suggestions.
Jacks said: “People taking the courses say it’s great for refreshing their knowledge with the latest updates and good practices relating to handling ink and colour. Some beginners have told us it is very informative, especially in regards to printing issues and troubleshooting. And many are appreciative that the courses are flexible and can be completed at their own pace and convenience. In the end, earning a training certificate is a nice reward.”
