Integrate interactivity, animation, sound, and video in documents and presentations to attract, engage, and inform your audience. Take advantage of intuitive tools that simplify object selection and editing. Streamline file management by including mixed pages sizes in a single file.

The course is designed with a balance of hands on practical exercises, demonstrations and reviews. Using the latest software on MAC and PC platforms each course is delivered with training material or reference for the delegate to take away.

The InDesign CS5 Essentials course starts from the program basics and quickly builds knowledge and confidence in how to navigate the application and use the tools to create layouts from single pages to complex multi-page documents.
