Past Training and Experience

Adobe inDesign - figured out how to use it myself, learned specific tips and tricks on the job.

Adobe Photoshop - learned at home, at school, on the job, got a lot out of the Photoshop Bible Series books by Deke McClelland.

Macromedia and Adobe Dreamweaver - I've been a self-taught user of this software for about 10 years.

Computer networking - learned on the job basic connectivity concepts.

Aldus/Macromedia FreeHand and PageMaker - These last items are for old school software that can be run only on antique Macintoshes. I learned Freehand using Deke McClelland's Macworld Freehand 4 Bible.

Quark xPress - attended an expensive on-site training course, learned on the job - I moved over the inDesign in a matter of days and just like that an era was over.
