Power Training is the only Corel training system that shows you how to use both CorelDRAW and Corel PhotoPaint and how to use them together.

CorelDRAW and PhotoPaint were developed by Corel Corporation to work together. If you are not effectively using PhotoPaint and CorelDRAW’s bitmap functionality you are limiting your design and graphic work productivity to 50% or less of the CorelDRAW Graphics Suites functionality and power. That’s why we call this training CorelDRAW Power Training.

Power Training comes from my nearly two decades of experience in graphic design and business management. As a professional Art Director in a multimillion dollar screen printing and sign business it was my job to develop routines, scripts and work methods that expedited work flow and reduced out put and production errors.

Your training was developed to help you not just learn CorelDRAW and Graphic Design but also to show you how to do your design and production art work faster with greater accuracy. My goal with this training is to help you increase your speed and graphics profitability.
