Now that there are more than one million Adobe Creative Cloud users, I’ve assembled some Adobe training resources to help you get the most out of the Adobe CC apps and keep your career in the fast-lane with the skills you need:
Live Adobe Classes: You can enroll in any of these Adobe training classes with a live instructor in the classroom with you, or with a live instructor online from American Graphics Institute. These courses cover all the Adobe Creative Cloud apps, including Photoshop, Dreamweaver, InDesign, Illustrator, Premiere Pro and also After Effects. Most classes are held monthly, and there are public open-enrollment classes for individuals and options for private training programs.
Adobe Training Books: The Digital Classroom book series includes a number of good options for self-paced Adobe training, including Photoshop Books, Dreamweaver books, and other Adobe CC books. Of course I recommend my Adobe Photoshop CC Book.
Recorded Online Adobe training videos: If you prefer to learn from video tutorials, you should try the Adobe training tutorials at DigitalClassroom.com. They include Photoshop tutorials as well as Dreamweaver tutorials, and InDesign tutorials.
Free self-paced Adobe tutorials: American Graphics Institute also offers written self-paced Adobe tutorials covering most of the Adobe CC apps.
The training options available for you to learn to use the Adobe Creative Cloud apps have expanded greatly over the past few years. You’re now able to learn at home, in your office, or in a traditional classroom. If you haven’t ever taken a live online course and you aren’t near to a training center, you should consider this option. You’ll learn from a live expert instructor, at AGI this is often the author of one of the Digital Classroom books, in a small online group. You can see the instructor’s screen and ask questions, just like in a live class – the only difference is that you can save the trip to the classroom.
Investing in training is an important professional development effort, and you’ll not only find that you can work more efficiently, you’ll often find that you can get new work and qualify for more interesting and exciting projects with the skills that you’ll be learning in the classes you take.
