Refund Policy
If you need to reschedule or cancel a class, it's usually no problem. We will move you to a different session, or give you a full refund as long as you give us at least 7 days' notice. If, however, you notify us less than one week before the class (a "late-cancellation"), we do not offer a refund and you only qualify for a late-reschedule.

Students may withdraw from any course (except when they have late-rescheduled) after instruction has started within 2 hours and receive a full refund, provided the reason for their withdrawal is dissatisfaction with the course. In the case of multi-day and multi-evening courses, students may withdraw after any session before the course's half-way point and receive pro-rated refund for the unused portion of the tuition.

Before I attended the InDesign Fundamentals and Advanced courses, I was an amateur at best. I am leaving this 3-day course with not only a better understanding of the InDesign program, but greater confidence in my ability to navigate the program. Where before I saw this program as cumbersome and difficult to navigate, I now see the ease of use, the fluidity of the program and can now go forward with confidence. I am so excited to take the skills that I have learned and apply my new skills on the job! Thank you so much!!

The print part was pretty basic for me, but just because I have been using InDesign from the day it launched, but I have not kept up with all the cool interactive stuff it can do (and forms) so that part will be valuable when I return to share with my team. Worth my time
