The curriculum includes 50 courses like on-site hands-on training, self-paced modular eLearning, instructor-led webinars and online assessment tools. Participants in the Academy will have the opportunity to attend general training courses that create a deeper awareness about the enormous potential of digital printing and how it can empower businesses to do more, as well as product training courses such as HP Indigo operator level 1, level 2 and color management.

The 1,700 square meter training facility at the HP Graphics Solutions Centre of Excellence (CoE) in Tuas has been renovated and includes seven training classrooms, hands-on digital printing press workshops, remote monitoring and diagnostic command center, and a next-generation product and solution training room. The facility will also showcase the latest printing solutions including HP Indigo Digital Presses, HP Sign & Display Presses and HP DesignJet Printers.
