Adobe InDesign advanced training--live and online!
Adobe InDesign is a tool for design and layout that allows you to produce high quality, professional documents for print and on-screen display. The Adobe InDesign advanced training class focuses on streamlining your workflow so that you can get your publication to the printer in a timely manner and work smarter, not harder. This class is fully interactive, as you will be able to speak with and hear from the instructor and other students as you work in real time to complete activities within the software.
Note: While not a requirement, some students find it helpful to attend this class using two computer monitors. This will allow for one screen to always display the instructor's screen, and the other for you to use as you follow along with the instructor.
Where is this class held?
This is a live, online class led by a field expert; and just like an in-person class, it is fully interactive and engaging. The difference between an online and onsite class? No travel! You can participate from anywhere in the world with an Internet connection. Many of our students choose to stay home from work on these training days, some never even changing out of their slippers! Where applicable, students are able to speak with and hear from the instructor and other participants throughout the course as they work in real-time to complete activities.
