Accredited Photoshop training

Armada is an Adobe Authorised Training Centre (AATC), accredited by Adobe to provide Photoshop training.

Photoshop courses are hosted by Adobe Certified Instructors with vast experience of using the application professionally. For further details, see Expert trainers.

In-class or online

Our centres are open for in-class training, with full safety measures implemented. Where numbers allow, you’ll sit at a desk without anyone sitting next to you.

All courses are available in our popular live online format.

How will I learn?

Photoshop 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 Photoshop. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to ask questions.

Windows or Mac

Photoshop works almost identically on the Windows and Mac platforms.

Our centres offer both Windows and Mac computers for delegates to use, so you can choose to carry out exercises on the platform you’re familiar with.

Photoshop training guide and certificate

You’ll receive:

  • A practical Photoshop training guide, to refer to during the course and use as a refresher after. Choose from a printed, bound guide or a PDF – whatever suits you best. If you’re participating online and you choose a printed guide, we’ll post this to you.
  • An e-certificate confirming successful completion of an Adobe‑accredited Photoshop course. Click here to see an example of the certificate you receive.

After course support

Following Photoshop training, delegates are entitled to 30 days’ email support from their Photoshop trainer to help with any post-course issues. For further details, see Support.


No prior Photoshop knowledge is necessary.

Photoshop version

Training is based primarily on Photoshop 2022. The techniques taught are relevant to all recent releases of Photoshop.

All Photoshop training is suitable for both Windows and Mac users.

Our guarantees to you
