FLEXO Magazine : June 2012
“And usually these courses focus on one or two particular strategies for improvement...certainly not the level of exper- tise an individual and his/her company gains as a result of the FIRST Operator Certification program!” he adds. The late Ron Harper (Dec. 3 , 1932 – April 14, 2012), an educational advocate and major financial supporter of FTA’s TEST initiative, once said, “We applaud the vision of the TEST program. We believe that the potential for rapid dissemina- tion of information, as envisioned in the TEST business plan, can make an unbelievable difference in the future global quality and growth of the flexographic process.” T hose words ring true today, as indicated by reports from the field that the program is filling an important void in the industry and enhancing the skills of those companies and individu- als who set out to achieve a FIRST certification. Be progressive. Be proactive. Take the lead and get started today.
