Adobe Presenter training course for beginners, teaching how to create high-quality multimedia e-learning content.

Adobe Presenter is a Microsoft PowerPoint plug-in that makes it possible to create e-learning content using PowerPoint’s familiar interface.

Our one-day Adobe Presenter training course teaches everything you need to take full advantage of its capabilities. Sessions include:

  • Converting existing PowerPoint presentations into e-learning content.
  • Creating new e-learning content from within PowerPoint.
  • Adding rich features including narration, audio, video, animation and navigation controls.
  • Including quizzes.

The e-learning content you create can be generated in HTML5 format, making it accessible through any standard web browser, tablet or mobile device. You can send scoring data to leading LMSs and track learner progress.

Adobe Presenter training is arranged on-request, i.e. one-to-one training or a ‘closed course’ for your group. Your training can be tailored to take into account any existing knowledge you have, and the work you’re going to be doing.

In-class or online

This course is available in-class at eight centres or live online.

Expert trainers

Presenter courses are hosted by expert trainers, with vast experience of using the application professionally.

Presenter training guide and certificate

Course delegates receive:

  • A practical Presenter 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 course completion. Click here to see an example of the certificate you receive.

After course support

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


You need to have a good working knowledge of PowerPoint. No prior Presenter knowledge is necessary.

Presenter version

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

Live online training

Live online training

We do everything possible to make your online training experience as close as possible to actually being in the classroom. You can:

    Live online training - see your trainer and the other course delegates
  • Watch our trainer demonstrate techniques in Presenter.
  • Interact by speaking, using chat, or raising your ‘virtual hand’ if you need assistance.
  • Share your screen with our trainer, and allow them to take control to explain something.

Like our in-class courses, online Adobe Presenter courses…

  • Are presented by expert instructors.
  • Give you plenty of opportunity to carry out assisted, practical exercises using Presenter.
  • Offer 30 days’ email support from your trainer.

All you need is an Internet-connected computer with…

  • Presenter installed.
  • A webcam and audio capability. If your computer running Presenter doesn’t have these, you can use a second device, such as another computer or tablet. See Hardware recommendations for live online training for further details.

If there’s anything you’re not sure about we’ll do our best to help you. We won’t, however, be able to assist with your Presenter installation.

We provide everything else…

  • Links to download the files, resources, etc. you’ll use in your course.
  • A training guide. For most courses, you can choose from a printed copy that we post to you, or a PDF.

In the week before your course, we’ll send you an email containing everything you need to prepare for and participate in the training. Then, a couple of days before your course, we’ll give you a courtesy call to make sure you have everything in place and answer any questions you may have.

Please note that we are not able to record scheduled online courses for privacy reasons.

When you attend live online training, you’re participating in a real course, hosted by a real trainer, in real time
