Generally the individuals supporting this tool in our organization are either IT department staff members that distribute the software or the training staff that use it for authoring.

Once users are up to speed on the software there is very little necessity to support captivate, but if support is needed, good analyical thinking is a must. Adobe Captivate is great but there is a steep learning curve, this curve can be lessened with experience in graphic design and a basic understanding of Adult Education principles (in my environment).

I am the primary support for Adobe Captivate. I function mainly in how-to scenarios. If there is an issue with Adobe Captivate, we utilize their support. They have been quite helpful every time support has been required. They are thorough and efficient. They ensure the issues are resolved and stay connected until then.
