PDF Training Courses

As organisations produce ever more complex documents and workflows, it is now as important as ever to understand the foundations of how these work. The Portable Document Format (PDF) is one of these standards.

At XChange Training, we know that every professional now needs to be able to communicate digitally and that one of the best ways to do that is through the PDF standard. From creative professionals making shared design reviews to marketing consultants building interactive feedback forms, our range of courses is applicable to workers from almost every discipline.

Our Acrobat courses focus on the world-renowned program made by the inventors of PDF, Adobe. These courses show you how professional organisations use intelligent workflows to improve the way they run their businesses. We also offer courses on Livecycle and PitStop for those looking to enhance their PDF workflows even further.

We know users have a wide range of abilities, so we have produced a selection of courses that appeal to all skill levels, from complete beginners all the way up to advanced documentation specialists.
