Roland Academy

We purchased a new Versacamm a few months ago and part of the deal was to attend the Roland Academy for 2 days, I would assume some kind of introductory/update course. Although it is FOC I am wondering if it is worth 2 days off work, expenses and 8 hours driving, Could anybody give their opinion/experience. Regards Kev T

Hi Kev, Roland take care of the Hotel / food and drink , all you have to do is get there , it is an intermediate course to help you get the most out of your printer, if you are already very competent then maybe you dont need to go but give them a call and see whats covered before making your mind up would be my advice.

Good luck.

When I went on the wrapping course I had to pay for my own accommodation (albeit a cheap rate when I showed them my Roland paperwork), food and drink - maybe I missed something!? (?)

Just my 2c's Kev, but I'd say any course that is over 2 days, and all expenses paid is worth going to. A 2 day break is a small price to pay when you have the opportunity to have things explained by the manufacturers. They show you 1st hand the right and wrong ways to do things.

Nothing is free here unfortunately. You put your hand in your pocket for most things in terms of training. Roland didn't offer me any training when I purchased my machine(s) it was left up to the installer to give me a quick run through before he left. :-?

Just returned from the course and I have to say it was very worthwhile going, really informative and extremely well run. Roland really looked after us and we met some really nice people. Highly Recommended.

Every knowledge you get is worthy. If you think you know everything you are wrong. At least you can ask questions you have because men who come from Roland are really experts. I can tell that for Roland Italy where we went to course.
