Why choose Rocky Mountain Training?

We use Adobe Certified Instructors. The Rocky Mountain Training instructors have Adobe Certified Instructor status (see About Adobe Certification for details). Three of our instructors, Barb Binder, Kevin Siegel and Khaled Hadi have been recognized as Top Five Most Highly-Rated Adobe Certified Instructors, Worldwide by Adobe Systems, Inc.

What makes us different from other instructors?

We do what we teach. In addition to our teaching credentials and passing all of those ACE exams, all Rocky Mountain Training instructors work outside the classroom in their fields of expertise: either in print publications, ePubs, web publishing, or all three. This is a very important consideration when selecting a training company, because many trainers only know what is covered the classroom materials, and have no practical knowledge beyond the courseware. The Rocky Mountain Training instructors have years of hands-on experience and will be able to help streamline your production workflow and answer your most difficult questions.

Does this sound too good to be true?

Barb Binder is the owner and lead instructor at Rocky Mountain Training, located near Denver, Colorado.

Barb is an Adobe Certified Instructor for Creative Cloud Design & Layout Solutions, which is the industry-recognized validation of one’s expertise and ability to teach Creative Cloud design & layout workflow and best practices to all audiences. This certification has a focus on Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign, and Creative Cloud workflows. She is also an Adobe Certified Instructor on both Adobe FrameMaker and Adobe Acrobat, and is a Certified Technical Trainer.

In her spare time, Barb stays busy supporting the local Adobe community: as a member of the Adobe Community Professional program she is an active volunteer answering questions on the Adobe forums, and she runs the Denver Adobe Creative Cloud User Group which is now meeting online.

Barb started in the publishing field in 1986 with Pagemaker’s first release for Windows. She has been delivering corporate training since 1987, starting out in the Washington, D.C area. She moved to the foothills west of Denver to escape the congestion and the craziness of life “inside the Beltway” in 2005. (Access to the fabulous skiing and living the outdoor life may have had a little something to do with the move, too.) She was an early adopter of online training delivery—beginning in 2007.
