InDesign private classes
If there is a group of 3 or more it may be worthwhile looking at a private custom InDesign course which we can teach at your location. You would need to facilitate the training venue which requires a projection system for our instructor and a computer with InDesign installed for each student. Please email us with your request so we can provide a quote at training@americanmediatraining.com

For individuals we recommend a 1:1 custom class which we can teach at the same cost as a public course. Please click here for more details
