  • Adobe InDesign Training - Introduction to InDesign Course

    Adobe InDesign Training, Rugby, Warwickshire

    This Adobe InDesign Training course is delivered across the Rugby, Warwickshire region including Stratford upon Avon, Nuneaton and all surrounding towns and counties. This is an introduction course but  InDesign Training can be delivered at all levels from Introduction through to Advanced courses. Your training can be completely customised around you and your business to give you a perfectly tailored InDesign Course with content relevant to your needs and focus dedicated to specific areas.


    All the InDesign Courses are fluid and constantly updated. They have been developed over many years to ensure you get a clear and concise grip on the tools and features contained in the software. During our time together you will learn how to create a variety of documents including reports, flyers, bid tenders, magazines amongst others. Having many years experience delivering InDesign Courses to both public and private clients gives me a unique perspective with real world relevant to your business. These courses are ideal for private company training, 121 sessions or large team roll outs.


    InDesign Training – what will you learn?

    This InDesign Course covers the following but for a full course overview please take a look further down the page

    • Create New Documents & Edit Existing Ones
    • Work with Type & Styles
    • Typographical Control
      Keep, Leading, Tracking, Kerning, Optical Aligment
    • Text Threading

    • Smart Layouts
    • Text & Image Wrapping
    • Colour

    How long is the InDesign Course?

    This depends on the amount of people sitting on the InDesign training. For a 121 session it could be completed in one day but for a group of people then two days is more realistic. It also depends upon exactly what content is to be included or removed. 


    How does it work?

    This Introduction to InDesign draws you gently in and begins by giving you a comprehensive knowledge of its tools and features. This then enables you to edit existing documents (perhaps some you’ve inherited from a former colleague) and the skills to create & design documents from scratch. The InDesign course then builds in momentum using the more advanced tools and techniques to produce various spreads & layouts including flyers, multi-page documents, tenders and so forth then export them as beautiful professional layouts.


    Onsite InDesign Training –
    & the benefits are?

    This is an onsite InDesign Training Course which is delivered on your premises, at your home or desk-side. It is ideal for team roll-outs, private closed company courses and individual InDesign Tuition. It provides a far more targeted training approach than courses delivered at the local training centre.


    Some of the practical benefits to this type of InDesign Training is basically you save money because:


    • The training is focused entirely on you and your company requirements
    • These are not generic one size fits all InDesign Courses you cover the content you need to do your job, everything is designed around you and your specific needs.
    • The trainer comes out to you.
      There is no traveling involved for you or your team saving money on expenses, overnight accommodation etc
    • Prior to the training you chat with me about your aims, content preferences and levels of delegate /s knowledge and the course designed around this
    • Flexible dates and times to suit you


    Laptop Hire
