Adobe Acrobat Introduction

Learn how to really use Adobe Acrobat to create quality PDFs, aid navigation for users, and use robust collaboration to improve workflow.

About this Event

Most of us are familiar with reading PDF documents using the free Adobe Reader, but Acrobat allows you to create, manage, organise and manipulate PDF files.

Learn the best ways to use this incredibly versatile, but largely misunderstood application. Create PDF documents from multiple sources before combining, modifying, collaborating and adding bookmarks, plus a whole lot more.

This is an introductory level course.

  • Class size kept to a maximum of 10 participants.
  • Average class is 4-6 people.
  • Qualified, experienced and approachable facilitators.
