More course information.

If you know how to use InDesign (and don’t worry, just a basic working knowledge is enough) we can take you to the next level of online, interactive and electronic publishing. This is the hands on training that unleashes the power of ePub, Interactive PDF and the awe inspiring, app making, Adobe Digital Publishing Suite.

Starting with the layout in InDesign, we take you through several options to publish, and help you learn which format is right for which project. Our experienced instructors will help you figure out the pros and cons for each one – and take you a step at a time through real world design and build exercises to produce working content.

With ePub you can create eBooks ready for the global market, or iBooks ready for the iTunes store.

With DPS you can develop and publish immersive and interactive apps ready for any tablet – and we’ll even teach you how to submit to the Apple Apps Store!

Need a catalog that not only beautiful, it has interactive images, video and forms that your client can submit directly from the PDF? We speak Interactive PDF – and so will you after a few fun days with Bring Your Own Laptop.




The best part about all this inspired training is that you won’t be doing it alone, trying to balance a text book or keep up with a faceless tutorial video. All our training is done in small groups with likeminded keen folk ready to rock digital publishing. Your instructor is ready and waiting for your questions, and one of the best features is everyone is ready to work at solving problems as they arise. You don’t have to hope tech support is in the mood to understand your query.

We’ve long been masters of Adobe’s products, but we spend as much time making our training work for you. You get real world, not to mention hands on, training and you create actual working content that’s print, publish or audience ready. You will learn because you’ll be doing it. And you won’t get left behind because we start from the very beginning. It’s one our favourite ideas that we take you from zero to hero, and you finish with real world skills you can apply to you creative endeavours.

The support continues long after your course date too.

You get take home notes carefully matched to your course so you have a great resource for later – and it removes the pressure to madly take notes – we did that for you.

And we understand questions don’t stop at the end of the day. As you continue to use the software, you’re going to need more answers, so we give you the instructor’s email and 12 months’ worth of answers!

And if you don’t think you got it all in one go, you can retake the class up to a year later. We are serious about you succeeding and mastering digital publishing.

So if you’re ready to embrace publishing’s digital future, if you want to learn how to really use InDesign, ePub, Interactive PDF and Adobe ‘s Digital Publishing Suite – you’ve come to the best place in Sydney to get the best training.

You can either get into one of our regularly scheduled courses or we can work with you or your team personally by offering this course at your workplace as a custom onsite course.

Now it’s time to call or email and book in for the excitement of getting the big picture on Adobe’s fantastic array of digital content creation and publishing tools. Our real world training will help you make the most of it!
