The course aims at giving a basic knowledge about colour as a visual phenomena. A thorough explanation of the Natural Colour System theoretically together with a series of exercises will be covered. Colour usage and design in South Africa will also be discussed. A certificate of completion will be awarded to each student - This is an internationally recognised qualification.
NCS Colour Center provides course material, mask, all exercises and NCS Colour pin II all neatly delivered in a course folder. Part of the course will be the NCS Digital Atlas and further discounts are offered on NCS products after the course.
The NCS Colour Pin II, which is included in the package, allows one to check that the samples are placed correctly and can be used after the course is complete extensively. The Colour Pin has the full 1950 NCS Standard colours plus RAL as well as Pantone, Muncell and any other colour collection (with the download of the Colour Muse App).
