Great class for someone who has never opened the program and want to learn about it. We walked through all of the basic tools and leaned how to navigate in the program. The class moved at a good pace with a really good instruction. The instructor always helped us and made effort to make sure about we are all in the same level. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone wanting to get started with inDesign, you will learn a lot and will be able to work with the program in 2 days!

I’m very happy I took this glass! It gave a great foundation of InDesign. The teacher was very good at timing out the class although sometimes other students with less computer skills knowledge did slow the lesson down a bit. The homework tasks were interesting and did a great job challenging and helping practice what we learned. Would highly recommend

David Arcos the instructor was very knowledgeable, patient and organized. He provided us with step by step guides and resource pdfs to take home after every class. I learned a lot from this class, enjoyed the fun homework assignments I could apply directly to my professional work and know it will help me move forward in my career. I highly recommend this class and this instructor. He and his teaching assistant Darkin will take the time to make sure everyone understands the basic skills of InDesign and feel like a rockstar after leaving the class. I enjoyed my experience so much that I wanted the class to go on and continue into InDesign 2..and will be taking more classes at FIT with David Arcos going forward.
