CPISC launches Production Support Skill Standards at Print World
TORONTO—TORONTO—The Canadian Printing Industries Sector Council recently launched its Production Skills Support Standards at Print World. The standards, developed and validated by the industry describe what an employee should know and be able to do on the job.

“Standards enable an employer to assess the skills of new and current employees, helping them to identify what training and development is most needed to help employees perform at their best,” said CPISC Co‐Chair Jeff Ekstein. “They are also being used for curriculum development in post‐secondary and training institutions.” 

The skills standards started with the industry’s three process areas, press, prepress and finishing and bindery and was then built on to include skill standards in production support, according to an organization press release. Basic skills, core skills and operational skills are all addressed in the standards package.

CPISC is in the process of developing production support standards, the project is getting underway and is expected to be released in late 2011.

The standards are available at Cpisc-csic.ca and printed copies can be ordered through infor@cpisc-csis.ca.
