A new vocational education
In 2006, a new vocational education framework was established called graphic technician. It is a new education covering the whole area of technical graphic production. It replaces the three existing vocational educations, graphic printer, screen printer, and bookbinder. The duration is 31/2 years, of which 45 weeks will be at a technical school and the rest in trainee placement at a graphic company.
