  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    I thought it was very good and wish to further my education in this software

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    Excellent course! Great format & supporting course material! I sat the 3 day AutoCAD Yellow Belt with Ricardo as the tutor & got to say he was informative & above all PATIENT! Highly rate Academy Class & will be sitting further courses with them.

  3. Rated 5 out of 5

    Having attended the AutoCad Yellow Belt 101 course with no previous experience, I walked away from the 3 days with a good knowledge of the software and an ability to immediately apply it to my company as a prop maker. The staff were all extremely helpful and welcoming, and the tutor, Ricardo De Jesus, was equally friendly, clear, experienced and informative. I am certainly looking to continue my learning with Academy class further and found it fulfilled my requirements across the board. Highly recommended!

  4. Rated 5 out of 5

    I enrolled for an AutoCAD introductory course, and after it was completed I felt completely satisfied. I learnt new skills that will help with my employment and found that Academy Class is a very supportive and consistent educator, I would definitely sign up for another course whenever needed, and would recommend it to anyone.

  5. Rated 5 out of 5

    Excellent course for beginners! Great format & supporting material. Highly recommend the AutoCAD Yellow Belt for anyone starting out in CAD.

  6. Rated 5 out of 5

    I cannot recommend Academy Class enough. A thoroughly useful experience and well worth it! All staff are willing to help in any way they can and will listen to your needs. The instructor for the AutoCAD course Ricardo De Jesus was a great instructor who knew everything there was to know about the program. An excellent experience and one which may lead to other courses in the future. I knew nothing about AutoCAD before beginning, but now feel that I can comfortably use the program for my needs. Excellent!!!

  7. Rated 5 out of 5

    I recently did the AutoCAD 101 Yellow Belt at Academy Class. I found the tutors to be very knowledgable with great teaching techniques, I have learned much am and now using the program on a daily basis. I do think due to Academy I am now learning even faster and using AutoCAD very efficiently. I do now look forward to my next two course which I have already booked.

  8. Rated 5 out of 5

    To be completely honest the course far exceeded my expectations. I felt it was incredibly useful. On top of that I think the facilities are brilliant, good locations friendly relaxed people. I thought it was particularly good that there were things, such as meal vouchers, tea coffee etc which whilst only small made me feel as though you guys went the extra mile. I would come back for further courses and i would recommend it to other people.

  9. Rated 5 out of 5

    I took the AutoCAD Yellow Belt 101 course at Academy Class Manchester and was impressed by the thorough and comprehensive way that the course was delivered. Simon, our tutor, made the whole application very interesting and the whole service was both friendly and professional.
