Adobe InDesign Beginner training--in just two days!

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 Essentials class is designed for the new InDesign user and for those who are using the program, but feel like they are taking a round-about way to getting the job done. Students transitioning to InDesign from Quark and PageMaker will also find this class beneficial. This Adobe InDesign Beginner training class focuses on the core features of InDesign. 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.
