PLANTS & PROCESSES FTA President Mark Cisternino (holding plaque) with the General Mills Brand Design Prepress Organization team: Bob Stadnik, Marilyn Foss, Kristin Savell, Kris Smith, Gail Wong, Melaina Bjorklund, Rory Berg, and (back row) Ed Skager. The answer, of course, is “yes!” One part of FTA’s TEST (Technical Education Services Team) is exactly that—a FIRST certifi cation program. TEST’s mission is to offer a certifi cation of compliance with FIRST guidelines, and the tools necessary to get there, for educational institutions of all levels, as well as seminars, publications and other resources. The printer certifi ca - tion program is currently under develop- ment, and will use updated specs from FIRST 4.0, including near-neutral cali- bration. “Methodology based on G7 and near neutral calibration will really push the consistency together because you will print toward a target not toward a press,” said Joe Tuccitto, FTA education director, who is leading the TEST initiative. On June 25, in front of industry part- ners, General Mills staged a second pre- sentation of the FTA President’s Award. At the event, Wong told attendees, “I just wanted to take the time to thank FTA for all your work to bring together the fl exo print industry. Your efforts to educate the industry through seminars and training courses, your Annual Forum that shares new technologies and business trends, the publications you produce, and the resourc- es you provide have brought fl exo print - ing to a new level, and you are helping us build our brands by making a difference on-shelf.”?
