CPISC Releases Bridging the Gaps Report

January 31, 2011

The Canadian Printing Industries Sector Council (CPISC) last week released its new report, called Bridging the Gaps, which looks at skill shortages within the industry’s existing workforce.

CPISC focused on the following occupational categories: Prepress operators, output and colour specialists, as well as operators in the areas of web and sheetfed offset presses, flexographic presses, digital presses, and bindery and finishing.

Built around what CPISC defines as its National Skills Standards, Bridging the Gaps is the final report to be developed out of CPISC’s Training Needs Assessment Project.

“The most startling finding is that although press operators possess the required operating skills, gaps exist when comparing the current and required core skills,” says CPISC Co-Chair Duncan Brown.

In other news, CPISC announces that it has updated its listing of Education and Training programs for the industry. As well, the organization points out there are openings for its Career Focus Program, which provides funding of up $12,750 for Canadian printing companies to hire new employees.
