Adobe InDesign CC Core Skills: Level 1 Course

Adobe InDesign CC Core Skills: Level 1 Training Course


Course Description:  The Adobe InDesign CC Core Skills: Level 1 course is designed for intro level and self-taught InDesign users, and will teach them how to create, edit and manage documents and artwork in InDesign CC. Students will learn about the InDesign Interface, how to create text frames and graphic frames, how to customize and save workspaces, how to set up documents and document presets, and use zoom and navigation tools to work effectively with their layouts.

Students will build complex documents using master pages, guides, grids and placeholders. They will also learn about managing Pages, editing and formatting text, applying and working with colors, and exporting PDFs.

The course is always upgraded to latest version of CC as soon as Adobe published new training materials for that version. This normally happens 2-4 months after the version release.

The course will cover the following topics:

  • Introducing the Workspace
  • Getting to Know InDesign
  • Setting up a Document and Working with Pages
  • Working with Objects
  • Flowing Text
  • Editing Text
  • Working with Typography
