A set of electronic distance learning modules to help people working in the field of colour enhance their skills and knowledge has been launched by the Society of Dyers and Colourists (SDC).

Consisting of 92 individual lessons arranged in six modules, 'SDC e-Learning' covers the core topics of colour physics, dyes, fibres and polymers, management, dyeing and printing.

Modules 1-4 of the CD-ROM-based package are applicable to any colour-related industry, whilst modules 5 and 6 relate specifically to textiles.
