Graphic Imaging Technology I
Graphic Imaging Technology I introduces students to the graphic communications industry. Students gain an overview of digital file preparation, image capture, color theory, digital file output, press operations, and bindery operations. Students learn to practice workplace safety and develop skills in measurement, mathematical problem solving, interpersonal communication, and the job application process. Graphic imaging technology programs must be accredited by PrintED, administered by the Graphic Arts Education and Research Foundation (GAERF).
Contextual instruction and student participation in co-curricular career and technical student organization (CTSO) activities will develop leadership, interpersonal, and career skills. High-quality work-based learning (HQWBL) will provide experiential learning opportunities related to students' career goals and/or interests, integrated with instruction, and performed in partnership with local businesses and organizations.
