Acrobat XI Pro Introduction Training Course Reviews:

“Great class with useful tools, shortcuts and information even for users who are familiar with using Adobe products. The smaller class size itself added to this Adobe Acrobat Pro training being tailored to our needs. Very helpful!” – Alisha D. – MdTA

“This Adobe Acrobat training will help my office revise a reporting process that really needs an overhaul. We will be able to eliminate the unnecessary printing of multiple documents and reduce our time capturing reports. The hands-on style of learning works well for me. Having an extremely knowledgeable instructor really helps.” – Troy P. – MdTA

“This Adobe Acrobat training will allow me to move up and begin creating and editing forms for my entire company, instead of for just one location. It will also help me with my college major which is Public Relations/ Marketing. This training has given me a foot up against the competition. I would recommend this training because I came into this class not knowing how to operate Acrobat at all and now I know how to create forms, apply watermark, enhance documents, and a lot more. This class was great.” – Breayana B. – Anne Arundel Workforce Development Corporation
