Solidus are able to train on most common packages and provide customised training packages to meet clients needs. Most training is provided on-site using clients equipment but off-site training can also be arranged. The emphasis of our training courses is to provide the knowledge required to complete tasks quickly and efficiently rather than looking at all the features of a package. Course outlines are included for our most popular courses and updates can be viewed at together with details of scheduled courses.

A growing number of publishers are introducing publishing software in-house. Without adequate training, however, the enormous potential of such systems cannot be used to its full potential. Go Britain Ltd trainers are experienced both in training people in these powerful but complex systems, and in tailoring the training to the precise needs of individual clients.

Our training clients include merchant banks and financial trading houses, local authorities and government agencies, as well as publishers both large and small. We are one of the very few Corel-Accredited Training Partners offering Ventura training at all levels and in all versions, and when it comes to FrameMaker training we even train Adobe’s own technical support staff!

Among the many services we can offer are:

  • training tailored to your own particular needs by trainers who know the software and understand graphic design;

  • training which covers a topic rather than a single application – scanning and imaging, for example, or database publishing to the web;

  • ongoing technical/training support for complex publishing operations


Through our knowledge of the many different packages on the market Solidus are able to provide a bespoke support service to clients. Support packages are tailored for each client and range from regular updates in knowledge through to 24 hour telephone support. In addition Solidus own and operate Graphics and Publishing support forums on the Universal Thread at where you can find files, useful articles and frequently asked questions, as well as forums for exchanging messages with other users. On the Solidus web site at you will find a range of products, including books, for publishers.
