These interactive seminars are ideal for colour specifiers, quality control professionals, lab technicians and anyone who evaluates colour. The Toronto sessions will take place Tuesday and Wednesday, October 25th and 26th, at the Holiday Inn Toronto International Airport Hotel, located at 970 Dixon Road. Attendees can register for either the two-day seminar or one of the individual sessions:

  • Day One: Fundamentals of Colour and Appearance (FOCA) training provides a solid understanding of the art and science of colour, covering the physics of colour, importance of lighting, and how to use spectrophotometres and colour data.
  • Day Two: Fundamentals of Instrumentation and Quality Control (FIQC) is a hands-on workshop where attendees use X-Rite spectrophotometres, light booths and software to create colour standards, develop appropriate colour tolerances, measure samples against target colours and analyze the results.
The Holiday Inn Toronto International Airport Hotel will host the seminars.

Our trainers provide practical information and advice on how to improve quality control processes by streamlining colour communication, measurement, reporting and recording.”
