NSW south coast printers will have the opportunity to cut their energy costs by attending a special day-long course being scheduled for September.

The course is being run by Printing Industries at no cost to participants due to a partnership with the Office of Environment & Heritage NSW, SD Environmental Management and Applied Training Solutions.

Ian Walz, national manager of learning and development at Printing Industries says the course had already been staged successfully in Sydney and was now being made available in regional areas subject to demand.

“We have had some expressions of interest from the Illawarra and ACT regions and are opening up the opportunity to all printers in the south coast area before settling on a convenient location for those wanting to attend.

“Our participants to date have all taken away knowledge that can help reduce energy consumption in their companies and save them substantial amounts of money. The timing is perfect given the increasing electricity costs being imposed in NSW,” he said.

Walz (pictured) says the next Sydney course is scheduled at Printing Industries’ Auburn office on 17 August to be followed by a Newcastle course on 18 August.

Although the courses are free, registration is essential and can be made by contacting Ian Walz on (02) 8789 7362 E-mail:
