InDesign Advanced with ACA 3 Days Overview

InDesign Logo and ACA advanced course participants

This 3-day Advanced course will help to develop your skills as you explore the advanced features of Adobe InDesign CS6. We will help you understand how this industry-leading program takes desktop publishing and design to a new level, and combines production power and creative freedom with tight integration with Photoshop, Illustrator, and Acrobat software.

You will already understand the basics of the program, and we will show you how to take that knowledge to the next level. We will cover advanced topics such as creating eBooks, generating indexes, and automating workflows.

Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Create complex documents such as interactive PDFs and eBooks
  • Use advanced tools and palettes
  • Re-use data via libraries and snippets
  • Generate tables of contents and indexes
  • Store PDF presets

The final day of the course is dedicated to the Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) InDesign exam, including trying a mock exam, reviewing answers, and then taking the real exam. The ACA exam represents an official qualification, and you will be provided with an instant pass or fail result. We are confident that you will join everyone we have already helped to pass the exam and collect an official certificate of Adobe Certified Associate status.

As well as giving you the opportunity to take the ACA exam, this course is the perfect preparation if you plan to take the Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) exam.

Our goals are for you to understand the advanced features of InDesign, to become a confident power user, and to leave with an ACA qualification under your belt.


Course Target Audience and delegate prerequisites

This course is intended for those who wish to enhance their existing knowledge of InDesign and who work as graphic designers, creative professionals, print professionals, publishers, pre-press professionals, or marketing communications professionals.

You will need basic experience in using InDesign. Ideally, you will have taken our Adobe InDesign CS6 Introduction 2 Day course.

Excellent. Course was tailored to our requirements, so didn't feel that any time was wasted.

Thanks for a very pleasant and educational 2 days. I think it was especially good because it was a small class which gave very individual training.

Training is/was comprehensive and a good overview for the beginner. Good outline of course and structured day's learning.

A thoroughly fun and enjoyable course delivered by an enthusiastic and knowledgeable tutor - can't wait to get back into the office environment and put it all into practice!

Katrina Gillespie, Vinci Academy, InDesign - 2 Day Advanced

Excellent facilities, close to the station. The tutor really understood the program and the work of designers. He taught more than was required and answered advanced questions with knowledge and understanding. The course will help me enormously with my work and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend XChange Training to my fellow colleagues and friends.

Gary Stafford, Shoreline Housing Partnership, InDesign - 1 Day Introduction

I found the course very enjoyable. After using InDesign for a year just teaching myself how to do things, it is good to now know how to do them properly! Thank you very much.

The trainer was easy to follow and very easy going, which creates a excellent training environment. I will certainly be coming back in the future. A great teacher and a great course!
