Accredited FrameMaker training
Armada is an Adobe Authorised Training Centre (AATC), accredited by Adobe to provide FrameMaker training.
FrameMaker training is hosted by Adobe Certified Instructors, who are Adobe Certified Experts in the application, with over 20 years’ experience working as a technical authoring professional.
How will I learn?
FrameMaker training is hands-on and practical.
Our trainers teach the necessary theory then demonstrate techniques step-by-step. You then practice the techniques taught on a computer running FrameMaker.
There is plenty of time to ask questions, and you can take away all the files you create.
Training guide and certificate
Course delegates receive:
- A comprehensive training guide for FrameMaker, to refer to throughout the course, and to use as a refresher afterwards.

After course support
Following FrameMaker training, delegates are entitled to 30 days’ email support from their FrameMaker trainer to help with any post-course issues. For further details, see Support.
Delegates should be familiar with the techniques taught in our Introduction to FrameMaker course, in particular character formatting, paragraphs, the table designer and master pages.
Training is based primarily on FrameMaker 2017, as contained in Adobe Technical Communication Suite 2019. The techniques taught are relevant to all recent releases of FrameMaker.
