EFIA has announced the launch of a brand new module on its web-based Academy training platform.

The module focuses on the principles of die-cutting, including rotary, flatbed and laser, and comprises six distinct topic areas in a multimedia format.

The training is designed to benefit everyone working within the flexographic industry, with the aim of providing a well-rounded understanding of the wider flexo supply chain. 

The dedicated eLearning course is self-paced and part of a nationally-recognised programme. It is designed to enable learning in a modular and flexible structure, with a result tracking framework that makes Continuous Professional Development (CPD) point recording clear, demonstrable and straightforward and can be part of an apprenticeship programme.

Debbie Waldron Hoines, EFIA Consultant CEO, commented: “We are extremely pleased to offer a new module that looks in more depth at how rotary, flatbed and laser die-cutting fits into our industry and the developments that everyone should be aware of.

“We’re proud of the industry resource that we can offer with the Academy. It’s designed specifically for anyone involved in the flexographic supply chain - from designer to printer to retailer - and written by industry professionals."

Neil Jones, EFIA Chairman, added: "At EFIA, we champion constant learning and development in the sector in line with our philosophy that our industry needs to collaborate, innovate, legislate and educate to be sustainable and successful in the long term. It's therefore imperative to upskill, keeping us moving forward as an industry and offsetting the emerging skills gap we are observing.”

The Academy platform was established to meet the evolving needs of the flexo printing industry, through innovative, accessible and economical online learning. Providing tailored e-learning resources in areas such as inks, fault finding, film substrates, reprographics and lean manufacturing, it is designed by leading flexographic print experts and is recognised by all leading print companies as the best training solution for the flexography industry.
