Our experience has shown that group sizes of 4 to 5 persons are best suited for this form of training as this ensures the Q&A interactivity of small groups is maintained and one is better able to respond to the individual wishes of the participants - in addition this is less likely to adversely affect the internal workings of the client.


This course requires knowledge and experience of the popular operating systems, Mac OS X, Windows. Possessing an understanding of the basic concepts of DTP (Adobe Indesign, Quark XPress) and graphics (Import & Export, Adobe Illustrator) would be advantageous.
