X-Rite, Pantone hosting online color theory and quality control training

X-Rite and Pantone offer a series of virtual color sciences and quality control for manufacturers and a wide range of other disciplines.

X-Rite Incorporated, a Grand Rapids-based color science and technology company, and its subsidiary Pantone LLC said Monday, October 4, that their popular Fundamentals Seminar Series focusing on color science and quality control is now available in a format online learning.

The distance format consists of two courses and offers self-study modules, downloadable course guides, educational videos, product demonstrations and interactive activities.

Attendees will learn color theory and how to measure, control and communicate color to improve production flows, reduce waste and achieve sustainability goals.

“Last year, we announced our first virtual course in the Fundamentals Seminar Series, Fundamentals of Color and Appearance (FOCA). 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 for 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 in their workflows and supply chains.”

The Fundamentals webinar series consists of two courses 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 Q&A session with an X-Rite color expert.

The seminar is 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 includes:

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

Registration for the first seminar is available here, and registration for the second is here.
