X-Rite and Pantone announce online training in color theory and quality control

X-Rite Incorporated and its subsidiary Pantone SARL announced that its Fundamentals Seminar Series focused on color science and quality control is now available in an e-learning format. The distance format consists of two courses and includes self-paced modules, downloadable course guides, educational videos, product demonstrations and interactive activities. Participants will learn about color theory and how to measure, control and communicate color to improve workflows, reduce waste and achieve sustainability goals. In addition to the virtual format, the seminar will also be held in person this fall across the United States.

“Last year, we announced our first virtual course in the Fundamentals, Fundamentals of Color and Appearance Seminar Series. We are delighted to announce that the second course, Fundamentals of Instrumentation and Quality Control (FIQC), is now also online, ”said Raj Shah, vice president of marketing, X-Rite and Pantone. “Together, these courses provide a blend of color theory and practical information to help participants implement color measurement and quality standards into their workflows and supply chains. “

The Fundamentals Webinar is a two-course series with over 10 hours of video instruction taught by X-Rite color experts. To enhance the distance learning experience, attendees have access to a discussion forum and a live question-and-answer session with an X-Rite color expert. The seminar is ideal for anyone who works with or specifies color, including quality control professionals, lab technicians, parts suppliers, product developers, designers, and manufacturers.

The Fundamentals Seminar Series courses include:

  • Foundations of Color and Appearance (FOCA), which focuses on the science of color and appearance. From color physics and lighting, spectrophotometers and color data, this course will teach how to measure, visualize and understand communication and color data.

  • Fundamentals of Instrumentation and Quality Control (FIQC), a hands-on color quality control workshop using X-Rite instruments and software. Topics include creating color standards, developing appropriate color tolerances, and measuring samples against target colors while analyzing the results.
