Acrobat Fundamentals Training

PDF (Portable Document Format) is today's standard format for document distribution. And the application that makes it possible to create PDF files from almost any program is Adobe Acrobat.

Our Acrobat training will give you the control you need over your PDF documents. We'll show you how to use Acrobat to create PDF files, make changes and mark up a PDF file, even edit text. You'll learn how to safeguard your information with Acrobat's security features, and how to produce high-quality PDFs for print vendors.

Our two-day Acrobat training class will guide you step-by-step from the basics, like creating a simple PDF file, to advanced features, like creating interactive forms.
