Mimaki has announced a new educational training programme entitled School of Mimaki Application and Resource Training (SMART) to be implemented during the first quarter of 2014. Mimaki will instruct and educate dealers and their end-user customers on the utilisation, operation and servicing of the many Mimaki products offered in the industries they serve.
These industries include the sign, graphics, textile, apparel and industrial marketplaces. Mimaki will use their six regional technology centres in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Los Angeles and New Jersey to host the instructional and training programmes.
The SMART Programme will encompass the entire marketplace segments these technology centres currently serve to instruct and support Mimaki’s existing client base and future customers in the following areas:
• Field Service Training for Mimaki dealers nationwide.
• Customer instruction and education on Vehicle/Fleet Wraps and Graphics.
• Training classes to educate on the methods and workflow of digital printing on Textile and Apparel media.
• Classes to educate the use of Mimaki UV LED tabletop printers to serve the Awards, Trophy and Promotional Products marketplaces.
Mimaki also has plans to offer Advanced Certification Courses under the SMART Programme. Advanced courses will include ‘Train the Trainer’ and higher levels of curriculum.
