FIRST Implementation Specialist Certification yields experts in flexographic printing support, consultation and communication, who are proficient in communicating the principles and practices of FIRST across the entire flexographic supply chain.
“While the FTA is glad a number of plate suppliers are now committed to FIRST certification training for their staff, we are also pleased to graduate MacDermid as they become the initial plate supplier to fully train all of their technical representatives to FIRST Implementation Specialist Certification, Level 3. They join a long list of industry suppliers that are dedicated to promoting consistent and repeatable printing via the FIRST Certification process,” says Duane Woolbright, FTA’s manager of training services.
“MacDermid remains dedicated to maintaining high quality and innovative service to our customers. FIRST training is a critical piece of our strategy to help raise the bar in consistency and standardization across our industry,” says Ryan Vest, MacDermid’s director of innovation.
MacDermid saw the importance of FIRST and committed to comply with its framework. The company's technical support team completed all three levels of training before receiving the FIRST Implementation Specialist Certification, Level III.
