I really enjoyed the course and the content/pace was easy to follow and gave us opportunities to play around and test what we had learnt.

Ashleigh Toll, NSPCC, InDesign - 2 Day Bespoke

A thoroughly enjoyable course, very useful and brilliantly tailored to our requirements. Have completed two other introductory InDesign courses and this has been the best by far. Would definitely recommend to others.

Juliet McEwan, University of Glasgow, InDesign - 2 Day Bespoke Introduction

I have studied a course with XChange Training before and it is extremely well organised, friendly staff and has a good work environment.

Victoria Hassett, ETM Group, InDesign - 1 Day Introduction

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.

Nigel Hopwood, Jacob Jensen Design, InDesign - 2 Day Advanced

Our tutor was very knowledgeable and very patient whilst training. He answered all questions no matter how small. Not only did he show us the Adobe way but also faster shortcuts to ensure workflow on the system is better. I would recommend this training to anyone remotely interested in print or digital design.

Marie Kinvig, Heron & Brearley, InDesign - 2 Day Advanced

Very organized training course covered all the basics needed and ran efficiently and in a nice relaxed and amenable environment.

Top quality facilities, instructor and training (as always.). I cannot praise everyone highly enough.
