In order to participate, schools must have an existing printing program and a desire to expand their curriculum to include flexography. The benefits to students and the industry are numerous. Students learn marketable skills so they may enter the workforce upon graduating from school, while the industry benefits through the establishment of trained and skilled individuals with a basic understanding of flexo technology. Currently there are 19 high school program members and 23 post-secondary school program members.
