Adobe CS4 Design Software training - free

DPN are delighted to announce the launch of a newly tailored qualification course to aid your design using the Adobe CS4 software of Indesign, Illustrator & Photoshop.

Please note you will need to comply with the following in order to secure a place:
• Good keyboard and file management skills.
• Two new pieces of design work (leaflet, flyer, poster etc) must be produced for REAL work purposes – these will need to be justified by evidence of instruction from e.g. a client or colleague.
• There will need to be feedback on your design work from your clients or colleague, nothing too onerous though.
• As this course covers a lot of ground in a short time, it is essential that you don’t miss any sessions as you will find it difficult to catch up and complete the course successfully.
DPN would like to launch this course from Monday, 27th October but depending on numbers may need to make the start date a week later. It is intended the course will run each Monday from 27th until and including 21st December. The times of the course are likely to be 9:30am – 3:30pm and will be held at our offices here in Penzance.
If you are able to comply with the bulleted list above, are free to attend and would like to reserve a place please email asap for more details and to check your eligibility for a fully funded place.
Or, if anyone has any questions, or is very interested but just can’t make these dates/location/times please let me know as we are also trying to arrange other dates and venues.
* Wherever possible DPN will endeavour to provide this course totally free for eligible delegates.
