Adobe Acrobat training course for beginners, teaching key techniques for creating, converting, sharing, signing and managing PDFs.
PDF is the de-facto standard for distributing documents via the Web to view or print.
Our Introduction to Adobe Acrobat course teaches how to create PDF documents from a variety of sources, and goes on to cover:
- Sharing PDFs with virtually anyone, anywhere.
- Unifying content into a single compressed PDF portfolio.
- Collaborating through shared document reviews.
- Creating interactive forms and collecting data easily.
- Protecting and controlling sensitive information.
- Extending Acrobat functionality to users of Adobe Reader software.
Introduction to Adobe Acrobat training is available on-request only, i.e. one-to-one training or a ‘closed’ course for your group. We don’t currently offer scheduled (public) Acrobat courses.
We can host the training at one of our centres, or your venue anywhere in the UK.
The training can be tailored to take into account any existing knowledge you have, and the work you’re going to be doing in Acrobat.
