CPCC Employees Earn FTA Certifications

Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC) announced today that two of its instructors were recently certified by the Flexographic Technical Association (FTA), the world’s leading professional society dedicated to the advancement of the flexographic printing process.

Zachery Blackburn, a Graphic Arts & Imaging Technology instructor, and Gareth Burns, program chair of the college’s Graphic Arts program, both completed their Level III certification in FIRST Press Operator, FIRST Prepress Operator and FIRST Implementation Specialist.

To earn these prominent FIRST Operator certifications, Burns and Blackburn had to pass rigorous and comprehensive examinations, designed specifically to test their knowledge and to prove they had advanced competency in their areas of expertise.

These certifications, awarded exclusively by FTA, will enable Burns and Blackburn to bring increased levels of proficiency to their day-to-day tasks, allowing them to provide high-quality service to their students and peers.

The FIRST Operator Certification is the flexographic industry’s premier endorsement for flexographic professionals. FIRST certifications are formed from a proven foundation of

knowledge and based on in-depth testing and ongoing professional development.

FTA currently offers three certifications that recognize expert proficiency within a specific area of the flexographic workflow. They are: FIRST Press Operator (POC), FIRST Prepress Operator (PPC) and FIRST Implementation Specialist (ISC).

 

To learn more about the FTA, please visit flexography.org. For more information on CPCC’s Graphic Arts & Imaging Technology program, please visit cpcc.edu/graphic-arts.

 

 

You Can Save a Life! “Project Life Project” Bone Marrow Registry Drives are Coming to CPCC Campuses!

Project Life

Project Life

CPCC, together with Project Life (a national program dedicated to finding and enlisting college students as potential donors for bone marrow and tissue transplants) is partnering to educate CPCC students, faculty and staff on the importance of becoming a bone marrow donor.

The CPCC Chapter’s first official event was held in February 2012, when it recruited more than 300 new donors to the National Bone Marrow Registry.

The next donor bone marrow typing drives are scheduled at varying times at all six CPCC campuses.  Details are as follows:

LEVINE CAMPUS: February 20 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Project Life bone marrow registry is coming to CPCC!

Project Life bone marrow registry is coming to CPCC!

Getting typed is painless and entails nothing more than having the inside of your mouth swabbed. It’s that easy!

Then what? You wait to see if your participation makes you a match and helps bring hope and healing to a person in need.

Help save a life by joining us at one of our upcoming donor drives scheduled at a CPCC campus near you.

The program began more than 20 years ago, when a group of students at Davidson College started a grassroots movement to identify college students as potential donors for the National Bone Marrow Registry.

Since then, thousands of people have participated, and the program has grown to include an expanding number of college campuses in North Carolina. CPCC is proud to be included among these higher education institutions and house the first active Project Life chapter in the Charlotte metro area.
