Adobe Photoshop Core Skills: Level 2 Course Outline

 (3 days)
Version CC

*** Platform Note: This class for Mac or PC Users ***
Adobe software is virtually the same on the Mac and PC platforms. When taking this class from one of our locations, it will be taught using PC hardware with Windows software. Minor Mac keyboard and interface differences will be highlighted by the instructor. When taking this course from home or office, students can use either PC or Mac hardware to attach to the hosted Windows-based Adobe software.

Overview
Once you gain a foundation and some experience using Core Skills, you are ready for Level 2 training. IMPORTANT: To ensure you have the necessary skills for successful participation in the Level 2 training for Photoshop, please carefully review the topics included in the Level 1 course for Photoshop.

In Level 2 classes, content is covered at a faster pace and additional focus is placed on use of shortcuts and real world 'tips and tricks' to improve your workflow.

Each lesson includes unique and challenging project files. The Level 2 class also goes more thoroughly into advanced topics with some of the project files from our Level 1 courses.

*** Version Note ***
Our Adobe classes are for users of the CC and CS6 versions. These clases are run on the CC version of the software but are relevant for CS6 users as well. In addition, we upgrade our software shortly after new training materials are released from Adobe. Typically new content is available within 2 to 4 months of a software release.

Preparing for Certification
Our Adobe classes use "Official Training Workbooks from Adobe" which are in alignment with the Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) exams. For individuals seeking certification, we offer Certification Bundles which include training, practice exams, certification study guides, and test vouchers--everything that you will need to successfully obtain Adobe certification. For more information, go to:

Having Trouble Taking Off Work for Training?
Many people are not able to take off for a 2 or 3-day class. We have another option. Our Adobe On-Demand self-study classes let you learn at your own pace on your own time. Our classes blend Adobe Official training materials with video tutorials, quizzes, and real world project-based labs to offer a cost-effective alternative to our live instructor-led classes.
