Ebook Creation Training Course

The pace of change in publishing is ever increasing, not least in the creation and use of ebooks. Consumers and devises get ever more sophisticated and the demands on publishers to keep up are immense.

Our courses focus on the practical application of knowledge. This seminar provides a great overview of the creation of ebooks, the routes to market and the changing technology available to us and our customers. It’s a comprehensive introduction for those new to ebooks and a great update for those already in production.

All of our courses are designed in conjunction with a group of Production Directors from leading houses so that they focus on what you need to know. Each course contains a formal assessment recognized by many of the UK’s publishing houses.

To ensure that you get the most out of the day, we limit our groups to 12.

The course will provide you with the tools to be proactive in your role, better express your requirements and solve or even prevent problems efficiently.
