So... you've been on the CorelDraw Introductory training course and now it's time to develop your skills? Or maybe you've had no formal CorelDraw training but have been using CorelDraw for a while and feel there are things you're missing out on?

Either way, this could well be the course you're looking for. This Advanced CorelDraw training course consists entirely of hands-on practical work using a series of exercises designed to help you refine your knowledge of CorelDraw.


  • This course is scheduled according to demand, please contact us to arrange a date.

Who should attend?

This CorelDraw training course is designed for those who have attended the Introduction to CorelDraw training course, or for those who are familiar with the basic features of a previous version of CorelDraw and who wish to learn more about CorelDraw. It may also be suitable for those who are self-taught and would like to move beyond the basics.

Time will also be made available during the course to discuss specific areas of interest with individual delegates who are encouraged to bring examples of their own work with them to the course.

Contact us to run this course or a customised version of it on your own premises for just £415+vat per day for up to two people. Add just £75+vat each for additional people.
