Course Title: InDesign CS5 CS6 CC - Intro

Summary: Belfast’s Mullan Training offers a complete 2 day training experience for those among you who want to come to grips with Adobe InDesign CC. It’s a powerful program, and many of us could use a little (or a lot) of help getting started. But even though it’s called an ‘intro’ class, this training has a very comprehensive content list that really outshines most 1 day courses.

Starting with the appreciated and obligatory ‘we know you’ve never seen this before’ quick overview of all the features, the course list quickly offers up a very substantial, and well thought out, collection of topics.

Unfortunately, the website doesn’t list anything about who runs the course (Adobe certified?) or how much it costs – so be sure to ask questions if you are calling or using the contact page.

One of the things not mentioned is after course support, several other vendors provide quite a lot and it’s worth factoring in as you choose a training provider.

This course appears oriented around print design, but of course all those skills are applicable for web and eBook work, and there is a limit to how much you can put into a 2 day course.
