  6. Rated 5 out of 5

    I really liked Peter – he was much friendlier and more approachable than other tutors I have had in the past and I was not afraid to ask questions.

  7. Rated 5 out of 5

    I have recently completed the Green Belt Photoshop Course through Academy Class and have found the classes to be well organised and very professional. I was very lucky to have a tutor that took the time to explain, in great depth, the inner workings of Photoshop and as a regular user of this software there were many things that I was not familiar with. The great aspect of the course was that we were assisted with a separate screen to help follow the tutor. Academy Class had also offered the hardware that I needed to pass the exam for example a wacom tablet, apple mac and indepth course notes. I would certainly recommend Academy Training especially to anyone who found themselves needing to retrain, a position I found myself in not so long ago. The calming influence of our tutor made it easy to absorb some quite tricky workflows, which can be quite daunting. So, all in all a very enjoyable experience. Thank you

  8. Rated 5 out of 5

    I was very pleased by how well organized everything is. It’s really easy to follow the teachers as there are plenty of monitors placed around the classroom where you can see what is actually going on on their PCs (or Macs). All my teachers were very kind and kept a reasonable pace so that I never felt like I was falling behind. Professional and high-tech training facilities. I hope I’ll get to do some more courses with Academy Class.

    Went on the Adobe 201 photoshop course in Manchester a few weeks ago and thought it was fantastic! The course leaders really get to know you so they can not only deliver the course material but tie it into how you plan to use your skills in real life. You get great aftercare and support, and they provide you with plenty of material so you get the most out of the information you are taught. fully recommend the course especially as the tutor is adobe certified so you are able to sit the Adobe certifications and become qualified at the end of the course!

  10. Rated 5 out of 5

    I attended the Photoshop Green Belt course at the Academy in Manchester. the learning environment was very good, the instructor with sound knowledge and trained to Adobe standards.

    I have recently completed the Yellow Belt and the Green Belt courses in InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop. The tutors are excellent � knowledgeable, professional and very friendly as well as the rest of the team. The courses are very well organised and structured. I have learned a lot, became a lot more confident using the programs, passed all Adobe exams and became an Adobe Certified Associate in InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop. Overall it was an amazing and enjoyable experience. I highly recommend Academy Class and I am definitely planning to take more courses in the future!

  16. Rated 5 out of 5

    Really enjoyed the lessons and the information given/background and reasons for using tools etc. Days felt informal but followed a better structure than previous Academy classes I’ve been on.

  17. Rated 5 out of 5

    Sometimes it was difficult to understand the instructor’s accent but she made sure we knew what was being discussed before continuing.
