    Fantastic courses couldn’t recommend them more. I’ve had the same instructor for both and I’ve learnt more in a few days then I could on my own. The course goes at a pace which suits all users and the practice examples they use cover a lot of different techniques. So far I have completed:101 & 201 in InDesign 101 Illustrator hoping to go and do the 201 later in the year.

    I attended the InDesign Green Belt course and thought it was a very thorough course. I learned a lot on the 2day course and thought the trainer and facilities were fantastic. Highly recommend it to anyone who’s thinking about doing an academy class course!

    Always go blank when asked to do one of these reviews. Recently completed a 3 day InDesign course at Academy Class. From the initial enquiry I found their staff to be helpful and knowledgable about the course requirements and I must admit the price of the course was very reasonable indeed. Couldn’t fault the person running the course. Knew what he was talking about beause he had used this software for years, yet he was able to put us all at ease and if you had a problem he was there to go through it with you. Gave us all additional understanding of getting the best out of external printers so that was a great bit of information too. The course work covered 99% of what I felt I needed to know (the remaining 1% I had already figured out through blood, sweat and a lot of tears myself) The course notes have already come in useful and I must admit I seem to have remembered what he said during the 3 days – considering what we covered I expected to forget a fair percentage of it. I recommend Academy Class!

    Have recently undertaken both the 201 Green Belt courses in InDesign and Illustrator. The tutor was excellent, and covered topics thoroughly and at a steady pace. Topics were revised throughout the 3-day course to ensure effective learning and preparation for the Adobe Certified exam. Overall a very worthwhile few days, which will help me, achieve a great deal more from the programmes I use in a professional capacity.

    I recently trained at the Manchester Academy in Adobe InDesign. I found the course content perfect for my current level of ability and the delivery was great. Class sizes are small enough to get the time and necessary attention required and the style of teaching has proven very effective. I am now using InDesign on a regular basis and have received feedback from colleagues around what a difference the course has made to my abilities.
