Acrobat Introduction
The course was good, it would have been nice to have digital handouts to be able to make notes on (but that is just the way that i work). also with working from home there was some backgorund noise from the training which can be distracting. Donna was patient and explained everything well. we didnt have the Pro package but this didnt throw her she adapted the training for us accordingly. I defintely came away having learnt lots and feel conifident that i can now create and edit PDFs.
