Overview of the course
This class will teach you how to generate rich and interactive content for tablets and mobile devices by using Adobe Digital Publishing Suite. Most of the high-end digital publications are created with Adobe DPS. After attending this course, you will also be able to create and distribute dazzling work on-line.

We are committed to providing you with the best possible Adobe DPS training experience. That’s why we have a number of options to make the whole training process more manageable and put your mind at ease. Simply put, we want ensure that you actually learn DPS inside out.

You can choose to attend your DPS training course either in person, or as an online student. If you would like to attend in person, you would physically be in the classroom where the training takes place. 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. You would be able to see and hear your instructors as well as their monitors and ask any questions, like you would if you were physically there.

This is especially useful when a new version of DPS is released, and you would like to retrain on the most up-to-date version of the software. Otherwise, you can just come and resit the same course to refresh your skills.
