PrintSIP Printing Strategic Industry Partnership PGAMA

Modules run for 5 weeks, 2 sessions a week, for 2.5 hours per session and are a combination of lecture and hands-on demonstrations. The modules are offered free of charge for attendees.

The heart of program revolves around Print[ED]—a nationally recognized accreditation for  printing and graphics programs that is owned and operated by PGAMA. Modules are based on industry approved Print[ED] competencies, taught in Print[ED] accredited  school labs, by Print[ED] accredited instructors. Students take Print[ED] SkillsUSA Career Essentials: Assessments at the end of each module to certify their knowledge. 

In June of 2016 the DLLR awarded PGAMA an additional $150,000 EARN grant to expand the offering of the modules to other sites around the state. The grant period for the second grant runs from July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2018.
