Program Description:
This curriculum prepares students in the state-of-the-art techniques used to apply text, graphics and other images to a wide variety of surfaces and materials. Our goal is to prepare students to plan, anticipate, accurately prepare for and print, and thoroughly clean up a job in any one of the many printing areas. Students can learn the basics or expand on skills they have already attained. Instruction covers a wide range of techniques, inks and surfaces; safety and health issues; and training on common types of equipment. Employment opportunities are vast, in local sign, t-shirt and supply firms, both large and small. Many students opt to open their own businesses.

A Certificate of Achievement is awarded upon completion of all required courses with a grade of C or better.
