Adobe Captivate Training

CpOur Authorised Adobe Captivate training courses will show you how to make the most of this incredible e-learning software.

Led by highly experienced Captivate trainers with many years of industry experience, they are very hands-on and practical.

We make sure that you practise the techniques we teach you. That way you leave the course confident and ready to put them to use.

We offer training at our centres in GuildfordLondonManchester and also at our client’s sites. Many client’s find it more convenient to ask us to come to their site to provide training.

 We also provide private training for groups and individuals. This allows us to customise the course topics to your exact requirements, and run it on a date that suits you.

Captivate Course Approach


Our courses are designed to ensure you leave a more confident and faster Adobe Captivate user.

We believe that real skills are developed by using the techniques you have been taught to edit course material on your own so you should expect to spend a proportion of the day working in Captivate supported by your trainer.

Our exercises are carefully chosen to reinforce the key aspects of each lesson.

Our Guildford centre is in the Surrey Technology Centre, very close to the hospital.

What Is Captivate Used For?


Captivate is Adobe’s e-learning creation tool. It is a rapid authoring tool that allows users to create demonstrations, branched simulations and quizzes very quickly and simply. It allows your content to be interactive and very rich and engaging.

It is extremely simple to use.  It contains a number of built-in in themes, fonts and SmartShapes which make producing visually appealing content very straight-forward. It also contains a number of standard interactions which mean that making your content interactive is also very quick. For example, there is a YouTube interaction within the software. This makes inserting a YouTube video into your content very simple and it even allows you to set the time that the video starts to play.
