The Colour Collective will host an introductory colour management course at Apple's UK headquarters in Stockley Park starting in September.

The classroom-based course aims to provide trainees with the knowledge and skills to colour manage their own workflows.

The training session has been created and will be led by Colour Collective technical director Rob Griffith, who has run training courses for Gretag Macbeth, Canon Europe and The Royal Photographic Society.

The first two courses will be held on Wednesday 19 September and Wednesday 21 November. Places are limited to only nine per course to ensure that every attendee gets the most out of it.

The sessions are aimed at digital photographers, designers and pre-press professionals. Training is non-platform specific - both Mac and Windows users should get something out of attending.

Topics set for coverage include: Colour management theory; monitor calibration; Photoshop colour settings; assigning and converting Photoshop profiles; printer profiling; printing and soft proofing in Photoshop; graphics application settings and creating a colour managed workflow.

The course costs £125, or £195 including an EyeOne Display monitor calibration solution – normally £150 on its own. (Prices exclude VAT). Pre-reservation is required through the Colour Collective website
