    InDesign Course – how it works

    I come directly out to you to deliver the training on your premises, either home or office for either individuals, small company groups and larger scale projects at times and dates that work for you and your staff. Onsite InDesign training can be arranged for large team roll outs, 121 sessions, company groups /workshops. There are a number of benefits to onsite courses but the main ones are:  

    • realistic and reduced costs (I have no overheads such as marketing, sales team etc)
    • no traveling involved for you or your team saving travel & expenses
    • The approach is focused specifically on you and your specific needs this is not a generic one size fits all course. 
    • if required laptops can be rented and setup for the training with the software version of your choice
    • mutually agreed dates and times


    Laptop Hire

    Short of a laptop or 6?  If so, then I can supply laptops with 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.


    As well as delivering onsite InDesign Training in Notttingham I travel extensively across the UK so please get in touch to discuss availability and dates in your area.
