Who Should Attend?

This course is ideal for anyone just starting out with color or wishing to boost their color knowledge. It addresses color control for a variety of industries including retail and apparel brands, automotive, packaging and related industries in plastics, coatings and textile manufacturing.


This eLearning course is divided into six sections and will take approximately two hours to complete. No worries if you can’t complete the course at one time; come back to the site as often as you like for up to 60 days. The course also includes a workbook to help guide your eLearning experience and reinforce concepts. Each interactive session builds on key concepts and is accompanied by a short quiz. Following the final section there is a summary test to validate your understanding of the entire course. A final grade is computed as the weighted sum of both the sectional quizzes and the final test. Have fun and good luck.

Modules Include:
  • Section 1 - The Basics
  • Section 2 - Munsell
  • Section 3 - The Nature of Light
  • Section 4 - CIE Lab & LCH: Color Tolerancing
  • Section 5 - Color Instruments
  • Section 6 - Putting it Together
The course also presents a final exam; 20 questions selected randomly from our library of color science elements. No two students will see the same test. Questions are selected at random and displayed in random order. Answers are also randomized within each question. The only way to pass the test is to know the material.

This final exam accounts for 40% of your total grade (each section quiz is valued at 10%; 6 sections x 10% each = 60%).
