This class is for advanced users of InDesign with strong understanding of all the general concepts of using the application. The course’s content is put together especially for those users who plan to take the Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) exam. On this course we learn the most advanced techniques and lots of best practices but at the same time we focus on the requirements of the ACE exam. This course is really intense, so for those with doubts in their knowledge we recommend the InDesign Rookie and Hot Shot courses first or to consult our sales team and the instructors.
