Whether you're designing for offline or online publishing you want to get it right and our InDesign training courses enable you to do exactly that.

InDesign has grown to become the most widely used desktop publishing tool on the market today, yet the number of people who only use 10% of its features is staggering. It's not because they don't need the rest, it's just that they don't really know how to use them or what they do.

Our InDesign CS6 Getting Started course is aimed at users who are new to the InDesign package, teaching best practice right from the start and allowing you to make the most of InDesign's powerful array of tools.
