Heidelberg recently welcomed 90 new trainees to its leading apprentice program based in Wiesloch-Walldorf, Germany. In March, Heidelberg USA partnered with the Printing and Imaging Association of Georgia (PIAG) to host its ninth annual SkillsUSA Georgia Competition in Advertising Design and Graphic Communications at Print Media Center Atlanta, and hopes to grow its own apprenticeship program in the U.S.
“Heidelberg is one of the few companies that can provide a long-term career in the graphic communications industry,” said Gareth McEwen, Technical Support Manager. “We want to afford the opportunity to learn and develop while supplying the industry with highly trained print instructors to train on the functionality of Heidelberg’s state-of-the-art equipment.”
Heidelberg USA will add an Apprentice Press Instructor to its growing team of trainees. The selected candidate will become well-acquainted with prepress, press and postpress processes while also gaining in-depth knowledge of print theory, color management, and efficiency.
To be accepted into the program, candidates must possess a strong interest in operating the latest technology in offset equipment, as well as basic print knowledge and experience with color management.
