You do not need to have access to Fireworks to take or complete this course. However, it is recommended.  Please note that a 30 day free trial of  the current version of Fireworks is available on the Adobe website for those who want to follow along and practice what they learn.
We have broken this course down into multiple lessons to make it easier for students to study and practice the program. Each lesson details different features of Fireworks and provides step-by-step instructions on how to use them. At the end of each lesson, you will find a lesson exercise and lesson assignment. 
Additionally, each lesson has an HD video that reviews all lesson materials. Because this course utilizes well written directions, comprehensive screenshots that you can print out and view offline, and interactive HD Videos--along with lesson assignments, exercises and quizzes--this is by far the best course available on Adobe Fireworks!
