The training sessions are held at our centrally located Canary Wharf training studios in London. If you wish to attend the training from your home or office, you would be connected to the same classroom over the internet and follow the exact same class as you would do in person.

This is especially useful when a new version of Illustrator is released, and you would like to retrain on the most up-to-date version of the software.
