The first Australian Transaction Document Specialist School run by The Document Institute, acadami’s Australasian representatives, completed last week and was a great success with students passing all of the necessary exams to successfully complete the school.
The three courses that made up the school were held at the Printing Industries Association of Australia (PIAA) training facilities in Melbourne and this first school included representatives from AMP and PostConnect. It was also a great opportunity for The Document Institute’s own instructors. Even though they each have decades of industry experience and knowledge in their own right, it was an opportunity to become more familiar with the internationally accredited content they will be instructing in this market.
The school was taught by Brett Dashwood edp, managing director The Document Institute, and Bill Broddy m-edp, president acadami, who made his way across the big pond from Canada for this first offering of the school in this region.
Those that completed the school have now completed all of the education requirements for the Xplor Electronic Document Associate (EDA) level of the internationally recognised Electronic Document Professional certification program.
Throughout the courses, interaction is encouraged and when a student asks good questions or gives good answers, they earn a gold (chocolate) coin. At the end of the school, the person with the most gold coins was Julie Falcone from PostConnect, who was presented with the coveted Limited Edition Pantone Colour of the Year mug.
Along with Julie Falcone, PostConnect was represented by Catherine Nikolakopoulos and Mamata, and May Azizi from AMP Services attended the Transaction Document Production course. The acadami Transaction Document Specialist School is currently offered by acadami and their representatives in Canada, the USA, the UK, and now through The Document Institute in Australia & New Zealand.
The Document Institute are now planning to run full Transaction Document Specialist Schools and the individual courses that make up the school for both public and private arrangements across Australia, New Zealand, and the greater Asia Pacific as needs arise.
