The Copic Certification is designed to teach you how to get the most out of your markers. It is broken into two separate classes:
 
Standard Certification
Initially designed for paper crafters, the Standard Certification program has evolved to benefit crafters, illustrators and designers. This technique based, one-day intensive program aims to provide a hands on class covering the most important aspects of Copic’s product lines and techniques. It includes detailed product knowledge, blending techniques, mixed media techniques, testing inks and papers, and how to achieve the best possible results when colouring with Copic. You will receive a compressive manual covering the full range of Copic products and an extensive kit of Copic products.
Intermediate Certification
The Intermediate Certification has been developed for people who want to know more of the artistic aspects of working with Copic products. You must have completed the Standard Copic Certification class. In this class, you will cover shading, shadows and in depth colour selection. Most importantly, you will gain the confidence to make more complex colour selections. If you want to take your colouring to the next level, this class is for YOU! You will receive a comprehensive manual and products.

Please do not hesitate to contact certification@copicmarker.com.au if you have any queries.
