Brother DTG, a division of Brother Intl. Corp., Bridgewater, N.J., recently launched a new website called Brother Academy.

Brother Academy was designed to help new and existing owners of GTX direct-to-garment (DTG) printers and ancillary equipment. This online resource makes it easier for the installation process and operation of the equipment; as well as training new employees and serving as a refresher course for existing staff, according to the company.

The interactive training curriculum walks users through GTX maintenance and operation, as well as tutorials on accessories and firmware updates. An accompanying catalog with art and hardware electives shows users how to use accessories to produce better graphics and prints. Offered courses include “Corel Setup and Artwork Prep,” “Printing on Caps,” and “Removing Complicated Backgrounds,” and others.

The dashboard serves as a table of contents where users can choose from learning paths and courses. Learning paths are a series of videos that are taken in a specified order, unlocked one after the other.
