Welcome to the Acumen Training Archive Site
Welcome to the former home page of John Deubert's Acumen Training, a training consultancy specializing in engineering classes and consulting in PostScript and PDF.
Acumen Training is now dead, I'm afraid. The company still exists, but the market it used to service has dried up. (Few people need training in the PDF file format and PostScript is functionally dead. )
I have made no changes to the site, except for the addition of these explanatory paragraphs.
I no longer offer any of the services described on this site. I'm maintaining the site because (a) why not? and (b) people still occasionally download the Acumen Journal.
If you're interested, I am now tutoring math and physical science to Middle- and High-school students under the moniker "Acumen Tutoring." Click here to go to that website.
Again, everything on this page below the following horizontal line, and everything in the
rest of the site, is archival.
What Services Does Acumen Training Provide?
Acumen Training offers three kinds of services and products:
John teaches a variety of engineering-level classes on PostScript and PDF. The current curriculum consists of:
These classes are offered:
You will not find classes better than these or backed up with more experience and expertise. John Deubert has been programming and teaching PostScript since 1984 (he was one of Adobe’s earliest employees); he has been teaching and working with PDF since 1996.
John is widely considered to be a gifted teacher; his classes are routinely described by students as the best classes they have ever taken. He brings to his classes an unusual combination of technical expertise, printing and graphic industry experience, and teaching acumen.
Acumen Training's classes are the only ones of their kind anywhere in the world. If you are looking for engineering-grade classes in PostScript or PDF, this is the place.
