Have the BN-20 bootcamps been discontinued ? Was looking to attend one but they all seem to have been removed, either not well attended or replacement product on the way ?

I never heard of Roland having a BN20 Bootcamp. That will be a good start for myself as well. Since I had to learn the hard way. Since all school, college or university does not teach machine in particular. I had to read vary type of manual, blog, instruction, watch video from Roland or Youtube, and learn from the experience one. I did not mind cause I was learning from it all. I used to work for printing companies and know more about media, paper and supplies. Just few medium size press machines. We never had inkjet type of machine like BN20 or Versa Camm which I was interested from begin. Right now I own BN20 and love it. Just need to learn CutContour part which I have not figure it out yet. There are some interesting video at Roland website and very useful. You might want to check it out. Also I saw Academy on Roland site. Check it out here

Hi guys,

The BN-20 BBBC sessions are aimed at people that are interested in the machine/technology and that want to find out more about how the machine could 'Better their Business'.
All info on Academy courses can be found here: ... g-courses/
If you go to the page and select the 'Better Business Boot Camps' button you can see all of these taster sessions that we run.

If you are looking for more in depth (post sales) training then I would reccommedn the Intermediate Digital Print course
You should have (?) been told about this at the time of purchase, we also have an Introduction to Digital Print course which is a little more basic.
These courses are not BN-20 specific but will help you to get the best out of your software and hardware with a chance to ask any questions you may have.

Hope that helps. Any other questions feel free to give me a shout.

Yes I had found the web page and read up on the course, my point was there were none scheduled, on the BN20 better business bootcamp web page it states next available date "Feb 12th 2016" Today is the 29th March. Hardly inspiring ?

As for the intro to digital printing etc. wouldn't it help to run the courses over two consecutive days at the same location ? In May I would need to go to Bristol for the first one then Walsall a few days later for the intermediate.

The BN20 BBBC was launched around 3 years ago and therefore the sessions do not run as frequently anymore. The BBBCs are a series of sessions which are always developing and moving with the market and industry, so we still run the odd sessions of other courses but also look to add new ones.

The date on the BN20 BBBC date was left on in error when our online booking system went live, apologies - this has now been rectified and the Course Calendar should be used for any bookings.

With the Intro and Intermediate courses they do not necessarily run consecutively as they are aimed at different levels/users. The Intro course is aimed at new users - perhaps you have just bought or are looking at yoru first digital print device, then the Intro course would be ideal.
The Intermediate course is aimed at users who have been using their machines for a while and are looking to further their knowledge and streamline/perfect processes and output.
If you were to attend the Intro course it would probably be best to then go and put the things learned into practice, spend some time with the machine and then discover what gaps you may have to then return down the line for an Intermediate course. You cannot learn everything on a course and sometimes a little time and practice is needed to get the best out of the support available.

I hope that helps, and if you have any further queries let me know.
