Rated 4.7/5 based on 409 student reviews.

This class was fantastic! The instructor went a speed that allowed me to follow along, understand, and digest what I was doing. I learned so much and would love to take more classes!

This was a great way to cover a ton of basics in a short amount of time! Instruction was very clear and facilities were also great. It was the perfect intro to go figure out more things on my own.

The training was great! It was very informative and I love that it was hands on. I'm a visual learner so seeing the steps that the instructor was doing made the class 10x easier than expected. I'll continue to take courses here in the future!

Enjoyed the small class environment and ability to practice on a computer while learning. Great that we are able to take notebooks home, they will be good tools for when questions arise as I'm working on creative documents at work and home.

So useful! I didn't realize how much I could do with InDesign, and this was a great overview. Our instructor answered all our questions and was patient when I fell behind.

The training was incredibly informative with a healthy amount of Design Principals mixed in with the Adobe instruction - giving the course a double-value.

It was excellent, and exceeded my expectations. The instructor is the best instructor that I have had in a long while, she's a great educator, consistent with what she said she would review, was able to manage a class with various learning curves (always a plus)!
