Printing Press Operators and Assistants
The minimum educational requirement for printing press operators and assistants is a high school diploma. Students interested in this field should take courses that offer an introduction to printing and color theory, as well as chemistry, computer science, electronics, mathematics, and physics—any course that develops mechanical and mathematical aptitude. Computer science courses are especially important since many printing jobs are carefully monitored and managed using high-tech computer technology.
