ANNOUNCEMENT: North American Adobe Training Providers Form Strategic
Alliance

Research Triangle Park, NC USA - December 24, 2001. A group of Adobe
Certified Experts has established an Alliance, created to bring
high-quality software training to users throughout North America.
Alliance members combine forces initially to provide Adobe FrameMaker
product training in every US state and most Canadian provinces.

"As a group, we are able to do things for the user community that we could
not do individually," says Bernard Aschwanden, WebWorks and FrameMaker
(Adobe Certified Expert) trainer.

Information about Alliance Members, their services, and training dates may
be found at http://www.adobecertified.com, a private site managed for the
Alliance. The site is being rolled out in early January 2002, and will
include training agendas, class locations and dates, and trainer bios.

Alliance member Web sites individually describe services such as software
licensing, hardware and equipment sales, consulting services, and
technical
writing. This Alliance is a private collaboration between:

-- Bright Path Solutions (http://www.travelthepath.com)
-- Front-Runner Systems (http://www.front-runner.com)
-- Grafix Training & Consulting (http://www.grafixtraining.com)
-- PUBSNET (http://www.pubsnet.com)

Alliance initial training offerings cover Adobe FrameMaker and
FrameMaker+SGML. Later, classes will be rolled out for Quadralay WebWorks
Publisher, Adobe Acrobat, Adobe GoLive, Macromedia products, and several
graphics packages. Non-software training is also available from individual
Alliance members. Visit Alliance member Web sites for training in: XML,
technical writing, HTML, and structured document publishing.

Alliance members are Adobe Certified Experts and accomplished trainers.
All members provide consulting services alongside training and are
knowledgeable in current publishing trends. This site is not managed by
nor affiliated with Adobe Systems Inc., but by members of Adobe's ACE
program. Adobe is a registered trademark of Adobe Systems Inc. (San Jose,
CA).
