Adobe InDesign Introduction

Adobe InDesign


Adobe InDesign Computer Training Course

Course Overview

Participants on this 1 day Adobe InDesign Introduction course will gain an understanding of the fundamental principles of InDesign, setting up documents for consistent layout, before working with text, graphics, and other elements to create eye-catching content ready for print. You will be given a solid foundation of skills upon which to build.

The course assumes no prior knowledge of InDesign, however people with limited exposure to the software or those who are working with documents created by others will also benefit from this course.

What you need to Bring

  • Laptop with the relevant software installed.

People feel more comfortable using their own laptop, since they will be familiar with its layout and options. Having access to all of your applications and customisations will come in handy through the training.

  • No laptop? Please get in contact with us.

If you don’t have a laptop, please let us know beforehand so we can supply one on the training day.

Am I Ready For This Training?

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

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

Once you’ve completed this course, you may like to progress to our Adobe InDesign Intermediate course.
