Other information

  • All Adobe Creative Cloud training courses at Sydney Community College require a basic computer competency as pre-requisite. We expect that you can confidently and quickly navigate the computer directory and locate files with ease. Adobe applications are professional-level software, 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.

Course testimonials:

  • said: The tutor was excellent - very encouraging and patient!

  • said: 5 STARS

  • said: Very enjoyable course and a good introduction to InDesign.

  • said: This course is perfect for someone who has never opened InDesign before, and if you have, you may find it a little slow on Day 1. But Mel's knowledge of the program and insights into how to get the most out of it and develop a best practice process are INVALUABLE. Highly recommend.

  • said: The course was fantastic. Alot of useful and practical information that didn't dwell on the theory too much. The tutor was great- very open about sharing her skills and experience and patient with those that were starting from the basics and a PC user. Overall a great course!
