    What are the Benefits of:
    Onsite Illustrator Training?



    Onsite training is extremely flexible and can be organised for one to one sessions, larger team roll outs or company groups/workshops. There are a range of pluses to opting for onsite courses but the main ones are:

    • Training is hands on meaning they will retain more than if they watched a tutorial, read an article or viewed a presentation

    • No traveling involved for you or your team saving travel & expenses

    • Cheaper than traditional training 

    • The approach is focused specifically on you and your specific needs this is not a generic one size fits all course. 

    • No external attendees on the course
    • Prior to the training you chat with me about your aims, content preferences and levels of delegate /s knowledge which means we both have clear guidelines for the Illustrator Training

    • Flexible dates & times to suit you


    Illustrator Course Info

    This Illustrator Course content takes between one and two days depending on the amount of people sitting on the training – for one person a day usually suffices but for small groups of between 4 and 6 people two days is more realistic.   


    Laptop Hire

    Short of a laptop or 6?  If so, then I can supply laptops and projector hire and take care of all aspects of your Illustrator training course – again, please don’t hesitate to get in touch for an informal chat about your needs.

    Thank you for visiting my site.

    Don’t have a good day have a great one.
