Idealliance (Alexandria, Virginia) has introduced its new PQX (Print Quality eXchange) expert online training and professional development course for print professionals, customers and solution-provider teams to lead efficient print quality-based reporting and communication amongst the print supply chain. The leading global print and graphic communications standards association, and developer of the Print Quality eXchange format with its members through the Print Properties Council (PPC), launched the new online course as the first training program and certification aligned to the new ISO 20616-2 methodology. The new PQX Expert course covers core methodology and requirements established by ISO 20616:2-2020 and explains how PQX can be integrated and maintained to serve colour and print quality reporting.
“The PQX Expert course is highly interactive and also includes access to PQX software for first-hand implementation and reporting experience according to the new PQX standard,” said Idealliance Executive Director Jordan Gorski. “The Instructor, Dianne Kennedy, who was a key developer of PQX and PRX shows how to apply each concept step-by-step.” Not only is this the first PQX aligned training program, but it also offers direct free access to one of the industry’s first PQX solutions and other supporting materials to allow participants to rapidly improve their skills in executing print quality reporting – while also offering globally recognized certification as PQX Experts, by Idealliance. Idealliance members will receive special pricing for this newest online training course, along with all other Idealliance training and certification programs.
All PQX Expert lessons feature Idealliance’s leading eLearning methodology with interactive instruction, in-lesson quizzes to reinforce learning, table of contents for easy search and future reference, bookmarks to return automatically to where you left off, and 24/7/365 access. “This course serves the industry with further industry standards support, and Idealliance is proud to have this program available easily to all global print industry professionals through our new online learning platform. It has never been easier to take an Idealliance training course, no matter where you are,” Gorski added. The PQX Expert course, as with all Idealliance eLearning programs, include a final online Certification Exam, which, when passed with a score of 90% or more, awards the learner recognition as a PQX Expert and listing in the globally referenced Idealliance Certification Directory. The PQX Experts who’ve already achieved certification, along with others who’ll continue to achieve this elite designation, are recognized as proven leaders in print quality collection, reporting and communication, according to ISO 20616:2.
