G7 Expert Certification and Training

Idealliance recently held G7 Expert Certification and Training at the Konica Minolta Technical Center in Duluth, GA, and certified 20 new G7® Experts. The training ran from February 18-20, 2020.

Attendees included leading digital print providers, OEMs, premedia and production technicians, and print buyers. By earning G7 certification through G7 training, they are now globally recognized G7 Experts, and are certified & licensed to manage the most critical factors of business performance and profitability for the print & packaging supply chain.
