In preparation for our Singapore Adventure on January 2009, Doms and I decided to enroll for courses that we know will help us in our job hunt. So, when I learned about the courses offered by De Lasalle University in Taft, we immediately enrolled for the class that we want.
Doms choose the Desktop Publishing using Photoshop course. Even if he knows the ins and outs of Photoshop CS2 already, he still enrolled for this. Below is the course description and price:

On the other hand, I enrolled for the Web Design class with Dreamweaver.
