Offset Press Operations and Binding & Finishing is designed to provide the student foundational knowledge to preparethem to become production machine operators. Students will be introduced to the types of offset printing and bindery equipment that are commonly used in production.

 

The module will lead the student to identify the types of offset printing machines that are commonly used, the steps and skills required to operate a press, and common binding and finishing procedures. Course content is designed to deliver not only the “what” but also the “how” and the “why” through demonstrations and hands-on activities. It's one thing to talk about technology in the classroom but hands-on demonstrations take learning to a new level!
