Many people use Photoshop and just about get by – knowing that there are probably quicker and better ways of doing things and knowing that they are not tapping into the huge creative potential of the software.
If you are in this zone, or if you're a complete beginner with a specifc set of tasks you need to perform accurately and quickly, an on-site Photoshop training course, tailored to your requirements, is one of the best ways to start to understand and use Photoshop efficiently and with confidence.
On-site training is where we come to you – training takes place at your offices – and it's one of the most effective ways of learning new software. For a start there is no extra travel involved to and from a training centre, meaning less stress about getting somewhere unfamiliar and on-time, less travel costs and fewer hours on the road getting there and then getting back.
It can also be one of the most beneficial from a learner's point of view. The learner is comfortable in their own environment and samples of typical work requirements are close at hand and can be built into the training as and when appropriate.
When an experienced trainer delivers this kind of training it can be highly targeted and very effective, delivering an immediate and relevant impact.
On-site training can also be very cost-effective.
