GET TO KNOW THE PROGRAM

Summarizing the program...........    <return to Print Production's index>

Print Production is a nationally certified Print ED program that prepares students for a career in graphic design, page layout, illustration, photography, and production. MAC based labs allow students to learn how to edit and create original graphic art with professional grade software.  Our print production lab rivals what you would find in industry with such things as a banner printer, t-shirt screening equipment, book binding, and professional printer/copier to name a few.  If you have an image in your mind we can create it digitally and produce it in multiple formats.

PROFESSIONAL AFFILIATIONS

(Don't just take our word for it)

PrintED  administered by the Graphic Arts Education and Research Foundation (GAERF®) is a national accreditation program, based on industry standards for graphic communications courses of study at the secondary and post-secondary levels. Certification by this agency is usually reserved for postsecondary institutions and must be renewed  every three years through an onsite evaluation for the program.

 Art Institute of Washington , Bridgemont Community and Technical College, Carroll Community College all have an agreement with CCCTC based on the college's requirements for curriculum, faculties, and instructor that is reviewed and renewed periodically to guarantee that students are getting the equivalent instruction at CCCTC that would be expected in class at that institution.  Credits are awarded based on that agreement.

PROFESSIONAL ADVISORY COUNSEL  By Federal and state regulations each program has a group of local business and educational institutions that periodically meets to discuss  the programs curriculum and resources to make sure current trends in technology and skills are being taught so that students are prepared for the ever changing career requirements for that industry.  (more)
