About this Course

This course is designed for anyone needing to go beyond word processing into the world of professional page layout in order to enhance the quality of your work and save you time.

Our aim is to provide you with the necessary skills to use InDesign to produce newsletters, brochures, pamphlets, flyers, magazines, books and other high quality documents. We will introduce many time-saving features using quick keys and short cuts.

InDesign is a page layout or desktop publishing program, used by magazines, publishers, advertising agencies and companies around the world to produce both long and short publications. Although modern word processors allow the use of many traditional publishing features such as multiple column layouts and text wrapping around graphics, it is easier and much more efficient to achieve these and other effects using InDesign’s specialist tools.

It is important that you use your new skills as soon as possible on completion of this training course. We encourage you to take your own notes and to review this Course Guide once you are back at your workplace.
