Mimaki USA, a manufacturer of wide-format inkjet printers and cutters, has launched a new educational training program called SMART (School of Mimaki Application and Resource Training) to be implemented the first quarter of 2014.
As part of the program Mimaki will instruct and educate dealers and their end-user customers on the utilization, operation and servicing of the many Mimaki products offered in the industries they serve. Mimaki will utilize its six regional technology centers—in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Los Angeles and New Jersey—to host the instructional and training programs.
The SMART Program will encompass the entire marketplace segments these technology centers 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 Program. Advanced courses will include “Train the Trainer” and higher levels of curriculum.
