Key details

InDesign for fixed-layout EPUBS course teaching existing InDesign users how to develop graphically-rich fixed-layout ebooks for viewing on tablets, laptops, mobiles and desktop computers.

The course covers techniques for:

  • Incorporating graphics, audio, video and interactive elements in your ebooks.
  • Testing and validating your ebooks.

You’ll also explore the various distribution options available including email, website and stores, e.g. the Apple App Store.

InDesign for fixed-layout EPUBS 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) InDesign for fixed-layout EPUBS 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 type of EPUBS you require.

Training guide and certificate

Because of the flexible ‘workshop approach’ adopted with this course, delegates take their own notes on the topics covered, rather than work through a set training guide.

Delegates receive an e-certificate confirming successful completion of an Adobe‑accredited InDesign training course. Click here to see an example of the certificate you receive.

After course support

Following InDesign training, delegates are entitled to 30 days’ email support from their InDesign trainer to help with any post-course issues.


Delegates should be familiar with the fundamentals of InDesign, i.e. have attended Introduction to InDesign training or have equivalent knowledge.

InDesign version

Training can be based on any version of InDesign to suit you.
