    InDesign Course – how it works

    This is onsite InDesign training delivered on your premises for either individuals or small company groups.  You benefit from this more personal approach to InDesign training as:


    • The training is focused entirely on your and your company requirements
    • No traveling involved for you or your team
    • The approach is focused specifically on you and your specific needs this is not a generic one size fits all course. 
    • Prior to the training you chat with me about your aims, content preferences and levels of delegate /s knowledge, the InDesign course is then tailored to suit you / or your team
    • Flexible dates to suit


    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 Photoshop training course – again, please don’t hesitate to get in touch for an informal chat about your needs.
