Adobe Creative Cloud Introduction

Adobe Creative Cloud


Adobe Creative Cloud Computer Training Course

Course Overview

Participants on this 2 day Adobe Creative Cloud Introduction course will gain an understanding of the fundamental principles of the three main Adobe Creative Cloud programs, Illustrator, InDesign, and Photoshop. You will gain a solid foundation of skills in each package upon which to build.

The course is aimed at those who need to pick up work created by others, such as Ad Agencies, and make changes to files, saving time on having to wait for the agency to make the amendment.

This course assumes no prior knowledge of any Creative Cloud package.

Am I Ready For This Training?

You don’t need any previous experience with Adobe Creative Cloud to attend this training.

This course is designed for people who haven’t used the programs before.

If you have a solid understanding of how to use computers, and how to navigate the desktop, including opening and saving files, you should be good to go.
