QuarkXPress Training Class - Introduction rating: 5 stars from 4 reviewers
"Not many places offer Quark XPress training and I'm glad the class with AGI was so good. Greg was prepared to instruct the material and contacted me early in the process to gain insight into my training needs, level of experience, and to obtain specific information so he could tailor the class to that. It was a customized session, and well worth it. He was patient with my questions, while still able to move through a lot of material. AGI has a comfortable, quiet, and roomy workspace with ample monitors and equipment. Very professional. I look forward to taking an advacned QuarkXPress class." -
