Whilst browsing the excellent CreativeBloq.com website I noticed that Adobe have launched a paid for training website called ADOBE KNOWHOW (some classes are free) with prices ranging from $29 – $99, although do note that once you go through to purchase a $49 class for example, it will actually cost you $58 with VAT added
“We have estimated your order total as £38.09 based on recent exchange rates. Your actual payment will be submitted as USD58.80 – this is for a $49 class”
The classes are wide and varied, some are almost 12 hours of tuition so you’ll get your money’s worth on a $49 class and others are as much as $99 but only run 1hr 50mins. I guess it all depends on the value you put on what you need to learn. I’m not familiar with any of the instructors, they aren’t the regular Adobe guys you see on Adobe TV so I’m interested to see how they fare compared to the instructors and styles of teaching we are used to. Each class does have a preview of around 15 minutes so you can get a taste before you buy.
It looks like once you have purchased a class its added to you list in your account, presumably permanently, there’s not a great deal of detail on the site to explain the workings of it all as yet.
But we all love training and the more the merrier, if Adobe are backing this then it wouldn’t be a ‘half a job Harry’ kind of training, these guys and gals will all be certified Adobe trainers.
Have a look, tell me what you think.
Next week I will be posting about my recent Adobe InDesign CC training with UK based Adobe Certified trainers CERTITEC.
