Solid foundation for learning the program and relevant examples, will need more time to become comfortable. It was nice to have someone show the easiest ways for creating designs.
- Alex Hall, Genomic Health

Great! A small class size allowed for open inquiring. I think a few hours of training a day was very effective.
- Erika Myszynski

Instructor is awesomely connected to her students, and knowledgeable. It is definitely a beginner course, and my employer chose the wrong level for me... the others in the class were just starting, but I knew 85% of the material. She tried to keep me engaged by trying to specialize questions for me.
- Vanessa Luke, WSP

Really great class. Instructor is incredibly knowledgeable on InDesign and is really skilled at presenting the information as well as providing context. She went more in depth than the booklet, providing the meaning behind the concepts. She was great at slowing down if needed. If any of us fell behind, she made sure we caught up without making us feel uncomfortable.
