Those who can, teach!

We have been using this software and teaching others how to use it for years. Our trainers draw on their years of real-world experience to present instruction in ways that you as a designer or production staffer will immediately understand. You learn not just how to use the software, but how to use it in combination with other software, and how to make it all come together for your print, web, and eBook projects.

You’ll Learn By Doing

Our training sessions are a careful combination of talking, listening, seeing and doing. It’s the opposite of the all-too-typical “this button does this, this button does that” lecture type of training. Whether it’s hands-on-the-computer training, or lecture-and-demo, our gentle coaching and exercises are customized for your skill level and the kinds of projects you need to learn how to do (we can even use your own files!). That means more content is covered faster, and sticks with you longer, than is true with the usual, canned-presentation type of training.
