Other Information
  • Please note, all Adobe courses at Sydney Community College require a basic computer competency as a pre-requisite. We expect that you are able to confidently and quickly navigate the computer directory and be able to locate files with ease. Adobe programs are professional level programs and an inability to use a computer confidently will restrict you from progressing in the class. If you are unsure about your computer competency, please contact Customer Service so that we can arrange a call to discuss.
  • This is a crash course in Adobe InDesign, the course facilitator will aim to fit as much in as possible but some of the above might not be covered in time. If you have a specific aspect of the program you are interested in learning then please let the tutor know.
  • This course runs in our CBD computer lab, which is fitted with 17 inch MAC computers, all installed with updated Adobe Creative Cloud programs. Adobe Premiere Pro functions the same on both Windows and Macintosh computers except for a few minor differences with keyboard usage.
