PubCom's classes & training

Whether you come to our training lab, or we come to your office to conduct onsite training, all our instructors are seasoned industry pros as well as professional instructors, full of enthusiasm, tips and tricks to get you up to speed fast. PubCom's instrutors have faced many of the same challenges you face. They know what works — and what doesn't — and teach you skills that are practical, proven, and effective. (•> See our instructors' bios.)

All students who complete a course receive CEUs and a certificate of completion. Most classes generally include a textbook, workbook, and handouts. (This doesn't apply to some classes as noted in the course description.)

Classes at our studio lab

PubCom reserves several days each month for studio-based classes (see list at left or view •> full list of training topics) in its state-of-the-art training lab equipped with Macs and PCs.

Classes at the training lab are limited to six students to ensure plenty of individualized attention.

The PubCom's studio training lab in Takoma Park, Maryland, is cozy and complete with plants, refreshments, and two docile Shetland sheepdogs who sleep in the corner. Students have full access to the studio and learn in a unique, relaxed and creative setting.

Classes run from 9:00am – 4:00pm unless otherwise noted. The training lab stays open for an additional hour after each class for self-paced practice time.

Full- or multi- day classes include a one-hour lunch break (on your own) and morning/afternoon breaks.

Comprehensive textbooks and handouts are included in the registration fee. (Note: For some seminars and short classes, formal textbooks aren't available; if so, it's noted in the class description.)
