Adobe RoboHelp Training

This live, hands-on, instructor-led, Adobe RoboHelp course is designed for the beginner to intermediate RoboHelp user and will teach you the essential skills needed to create and deliver user assistance as Help systems, policies and procedure guides, knowledge bases, and more.

You will learn to create RoboHelp projects from scratch and how to add content by importing content from Microsoft Word and HTML files. You’ll learn to enhance content with graphics, and multimedia, and how to improve user navigation by adding hyperlinks, indexes, and glossaries.

You’ll improve your production efficiency by learning about cascading style sheets, variables, snippets, and master pages.

This class is project-based and fully interactive. You will be able to speak with and hear from the instructor and fellow attendees as you work in real-time to complete activities within RoboHelp.

The current version of RoboHelp that we offer for our public classes is Adobe RoboHelp 2020 (for Mac or PC) and Adobe RoboHelp 2019. While we are no longer offering public courses for older legacy versions of Adobe RoboHelp, you can elect for private training in any legacy version. Contact us for details at 888.812.4827. If you are using an older version of RoboHelp, you are welcome and encouraged to attend this RoboHelp course. Our instructors will be happy to point out the differences between the different software versions throughout the course.

To attend this RoboHelp class, all you’ll need to do is internet access, a headset, and the RoboHelp software. You can download the free trial version of RoboHelp from http://www.adobe.com/products/robohelp/try.html. We will provide the course workbook and all of the course assets. While not a requirement, virtual students often find it helpful to attend this class using two computer monitors. This will allow for one screen to always display the presenter'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 classs? 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.

Need something a little more personal?

We understand your team might have specific training needs and we would love to work with you. We offer both online and on-site instructor-led, fully customizable courses tailored to your Adobe RoboHelp training needs.
