Roland University is now Roland Academy


Roland Academy

Roland University has been renamed Roland Academy, a move that reinforces Roland DGA's strong affiliation with other Roland training and education centres worldwide.

"More than ten years ago, Roland DGA pioneered the concept of offering advanced end user and dealer training to businesses throughout the Americas," said Rick Scrimger, vice president and general manager for Roland DGA Corp.  "Following our success, the concept quickly took off internationally and now Roland training programmes are available to customers around the world.    We are proud to unite our global training efforts under the Roland Academy name and look forward to new opportunities to help our customers achieve their business goals."

Offered in Irvine, Calif., online, and in various cities across the nation, the U.S.-based Roland Academy provides a variety of workshops, webinars and videos featuring instruction by industry experts on Roland equipment, software and supplies.  The curriculum teaches workflows and applications to help professionals increase their profits and explore new business opportunities. September workshops include Digital Printing Boot Camp in Irvine this week (Sept. 14th – 16th), the Born to Wrap vehicle graphics workshop in Irvine Sept. 21st – 22nd and a Colour Management and Productivity workshop Sept. 23rd in Damascus, Ore.
