Barcoding Courses and Workshops
The GS1 barcoding courses have been specifically created to walk you through all of the steps of allocating and managing your barcodes in line with best practices and global GS1 standards. There are two levels on the GS1 barcode training course. You may choose to complete both levels on the same day or to take Level 1 initially and return on a second occasion for Level 2.
Introduction to Barcoding and the GS1 System (Level 1)
This course is a must for all new members or those new to the role of managing product barcode numbers. This course provides attendees with a solid foundation for getting bar coding right; from the structuring of the code numbers to selecting the right symbol. No previous knowledge of barcoding is required for this course.
To view our next course date for Level 1 please check our calendar.
Supply Chain and Logistics Barcoding (Level 2)
This course has been specifically designed to meet the needs of Irish manufacturers and suppliers selling to retailer outlets. The course addresses specific business requirements such as couponing for promotions, barcode identification of variable weight products and logistics unit identification, labelling and data sharing. The Level Two course builds on the foundational knowledge acquired in Level One. Previous knowledge of barcoding is required for this course.

The GS1 EDI course explains the "what" and "why" of EDI in an easy to follow and non technical manner. The objective of this course is to give participants an understanding of how EDI messages are built, using GS1 standards, to support the supply chain. The course is broken into three sessions over two days.
