You will need to bring a laptop, with a version of Lightroom CC Classic on it, a mouse, memory stick, pen and paper for taking notes. You will be expected to have some basic laptop knowledge. If you do not currently have Lightroom installed on your laptop you can install it for free for 7 days so please load it a couple of days before the course and ensure that you have started the program at least once.

This course takes place in Tunbridge Wells.

If you do not have a laptop please let us know and we will contact you to let you know when we will be running our next course at a location that has a computer suite for us to use.
