    I accessed the class remotely. I was a bit wary at the start but overall I think it was a success. However it still does not replace being in the class with other participants who you can also learn from.

  3. Rated 5 out of 5

    I attended only the last 2 days of the course, so cannot comment on the first 3. My experience was a satisfying one, ad Dom is knowledgeable about his subject.

    Ian is a very good instructor. He ensured all delegates could work at a pace that suited them while not allowing anyone to fall behind. His knowledge and demonstrations of the AE package were to a high standard and he had a great teaching manner that was both easy-going and informative.

  14. Rated 5 out of 5

    I recently completed a course on After Effects with Academy Class. We had a great tutor who took the time to explain everything clearly. The course covered a great range of techniques and i’ll definitely be able to put my new skills to use. Class environment and refreshments all good too.

    I would just like to take this opportunity to thank Jason Cox of Academy Class for his excellent tuition and explanation of Adobe After Effects. The course lasted two days of light hearted examples that really delved into the depths of Ae’s. We left no stone unturned and I left the course with new skills, envigoured enthusiasm and renewed belief in my own ability to an industry standard. You can’t buy that kind of experience.

  18. Rated 5 out of 5

    I took a week-long crash course in After Effects with Academy Class and the pace was fast, but good. The tutor knew his stuff and explained everything thoroughly. If someone in the class blinked and suddenly found themselves ten minutes behind, he made sure they quickly caught up and the class progressed together. It also helped that the classes were friendly and lighthearted. Excellent tutoring and friendly staff made this a very worthwhile experience and I would highly recommend Academy Class for anyone looking to improve their software skills.
