Graphic Communications

The Graphic Communication competencies in this accreditation area require that students are competent in their overall understanding of the industry and its major operations, and have the fundamental measurement, math, and interpersonal skills needed for starting a career.
The competencies are broken into 11 subsections: introduction, digital file preparation, image capture, color theory, digital file output, press operations, bindery operations, measurement, safety and first aid, basic math, and job application and interpersonal skills. All competencies are theory-based and require students to list, describe, identify, and/or calculate production-related issues, rather than actually
demonstrate performance.
