Overview

The Label Academy consists of a series of self-study modules, combining free access to relevant articles and videos with paid text books (both printed and electronic). Once a student has completed a module, there is an opportunity to take an online test and earn a certificate.

It is expected that a Label Academy qualification will become a standard in the industry – for printers/converters, suppliers, brand owners and designers – and assist in providing a benchmark.

In addition to self-study options, accredited training courses will be promoted through the Label Academy website.
