Overview of the course
Since the e-reading devices are revolutionising the publishing world, it is crucial that you understand the key concepts behind how it all works. For a designer who wants to be at the top of the game, it’s very important to learn how to design for e-Pub as well as print in order to keep pace with this revolution. In this course, you will learn how to adapt your designs for handheld tablet devices and desktop software so that they retain their original character.

We are committed to providing you with the best possible Adobe InDesign 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 InDesign inside out. All you need to do is to focus on the learning part, rather than worrying about the small details. We take care of those. Here’s how:

After attending a classroom, private or online InDesign training course with Docklands Media, you will have free access to our extensive online training video library for seven days. At the end of this period, you can continue to watch the training videos at your own pace by becoming a member for a small monthly fee. All of our online training videos are produced by our instructors in partnership with

You can choose to attend your InDesign 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.

Once you complete your InDesign course, you can come back and attend the same training session(s) that you’ve completed to within 24 months. This is especially useful when a new version of InDesign 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. 

Lifetime Support
After your InDesign training, you will have access to our email and telephone support for a lifetime. You can contact us for any technical questions related to what you’ve learned on your InDesign course. We aim to get back to you with an answer within one business day.

We then can prepare the course, which can be run at our training studios in London or online, as well as your own premises both in the U.K. and abroad. We’ve trained individuals and companies from more than 25 countries worldwide.
