Learn how to maximize your color measurement devices

In color production, mistakes can happen anytime, anywhere… during specification, formulation, manufacturing, assembly, quality control, or (unfortunately) all of the above. Every mistake adds up to wasted time and materials, and stacking errors across a production workflow can get expensive very quickly.

One of our favorite eLearning courses to help customers maximize the accuracy and efficiency of their color measurement tools is Color Measurement Essentials. Each module includes videos to teach the basic concepts, plus hands-on exercises that allow you to practice what you learned using your device. Although the exercises can be applied to other instruments, they were developed with the Ci6x series in mind.

Each module also includes a short quiz to ensure you retain the key concepts. An overall score of 80% or higher earns a certificate of completion – a great way to impress your customers!
