Using the Printers

The system uses secure printing, so your ITQB ID Card will always be necessary to retrieve your print jobs, scanning or copying.

Print jobs are stored for 10 hours, after that period they are automatically deleted.

The printers can scan, print and copy in color and Duplex, A4 / A3 Sizes.

To retrieve your printing jobs, scan or make copies, you have to pass your ITQB ID card near the card reader in the left side of the printer as seen on (Fig.1/2)
