Print reading skills are essential for anyone directly involved in developing and manufacturing products. Engineers and designers communicate all the technical information required to make a product via prints. Manufacturing personnel must correctly interpret the prints to create the product. Technicians use prints to understand how to repair and troubleshoot machinery. Beginning with the basics, Amatrol’s 96-PR1 Print Reading 1 Learning System leads students to a thorough understanding of print reading techniques and skills.
The 96-PR1 is set up to accommodate either self-directed or traditional classroom formats. This learning system can be used by itself and is also a core system in Amatrol’s project-based learning program. The Print Reading 1 Learning System uses interactive computer- based instruction with both theory and hands-on tutorials consisting of text, digital video, voice, online self-review tests, interactive simulations, color diagrams and color photos. Student curriculum covers industry related skills in print reading, including use of different reference coordinates, creating and editing drawings, using technical drawing views and dimensions, multi-view drawings, and developing schematic diagrams.
