The ICTC continues to follow the Governor’s Wolf’s mandate for school closures. According to the last update, all schools in the Commonwealth will remain closed indefinitely as a response to the COVID-19 mitigation efforts. ICTC has posted it’s Continuity of Education Plan in an effort to inform students and parents about our current plan of instruction.
The ICTC will continue to monitor this situation closely. We are working with sending school Districts, the ARIN IU28, post-secondary institutions and industry certification providers to assist us in offering meaningful educational opportunities to keep our students engaged in the educational process.
Graphics and Electronic Media (GEM) should be viewed as an introduction to a complex and constantly changing career field. The software packages and computer technology available today are able to assist in the production of a variety of media formats which previously were outsourced to printers or design agencies.
Students who are motivated by change, technology and creativity find GEM to be the perfect educational setting. They are introduced to the areas of desktop publishing, graphic design, photo editing and illustration. Students learn to use the digital press, large format printer and sign plotter. They are encouraged to enhance their own creativity by utilizing the most modern technology available.
The program is designed to allow interested students to bring together many areas of creative graphic design and production technologies. Skilled graphic artists have a creative flair required to produce eye-catching publications as well as the talent and confidence to use up-to-date technology to output their creations.
The ICTC’s GEM program is a certified Graphic Arts Education and Research Foundation PrintED® National Accreditation Program. Qualified GEM students may elect to take the PrintED® Introduction to Graphic Communications, and Advertising & Design certifications.
