TARGET USERS

This course, entitled “AutoCAD Adobe Lightroom Classic Essentials” is for all levels of users. The course is purposefully designed to be a hands-on duplication of the real-life experience of the authors. So, this will allow first-time users to save significant time in the inherent trial and error process of learning new software. On the other hand, more advanced users can reinforce their capabilities. At the same time, they can compare their design practices and processes to the methods used by the designers of this course.

Infratech uses a “To The Point” approach to tackle the subject at hand. In particular, Infratech uses a solid instructional experience and a cutting-edge presentation technique.  With this approach, we can highlight the most important points of the course.
