  1. Will

    Really very helpful

  2. Helen Ingram

    Matyas was very engaging and extremely knowledgable

  3. Daren Cooper

    Very well structured event, taking you through the basics of Adobe Captivate. The resources provided by Academy Class were great and the lecturer was very approachable answering all questions we had. Although I was hoping to go into a bit more depth with some f the aspects of the programme the whole training was done extremely well. I completed a 2 day yellow belt course and came out a lot more confident in how to plan and use the Adobe Captivate software.

  4. Nazy Hashemi

    The Academy Class instructor was well informed about subject matter and was able to teach it to us clearly.

  5. Miss Syeda Din (Priya)

    The presenter had excellent training skills and was very patient when you got stuck on certain elements of the captivate course. The presenter Ian Gilbert went through the training course at a pace you could keep upto.

  6. Sarah Covell

    Trainer was informative, easy to approach and took the time to ensure you understood before moving on.
    Excellent training facility and on site facilities.

  7. Oriana

    The instructor was informative and knowledgeable about the programme. It was relevant and practical for current role. I’m more informed and aware of new way of developing projects.

  8. Valentina Cattane

    Craig was the best instructor I had during my workshops in Academy Class. He made sure we could all follow and practice and he was clear in his explanation

  9. Georgina Ghigo

    This has been a great experience and I have enjoyed every moment of it. I have learnt a lot more than I expected and the trainer is very knowledgable and happy to answer any questions. I will be recommending this course to my business as a must for trainers.

  10. Danielle Moffat

    I was really impressed with Ian – he was friendly and knowledgeable, and made the training sessions fun and interesting

  11. Shane

    Overall a very thorough and enjoyable course. The instructor was knowledgeable and broke everything down to an easy to understand level. Elements of the course were split up into small chunks which made them easy to digest. The pace of the course was just right for beginners.

  12. Jake

    Good instructor, Nice atmosphere , would recommended to others! Looking forward to the black belt course.

  13. Michael

    Ben has been a brilliant instructor, very engaging and entertaining, also extremely knowligable

  14. Richard

    I found Simon to be very engaging and very informative. The course was delivered in an easy to follow manner and would recommend anyone with an interest in Captivate to attend.

  15. PY

    Ben is awesome and very knowledgeable, his industry and teaching experience really shows. This is my 2nd time doing a course taught by Ben and I would love to be taught by him again.

  16. Brian

    Fantastic course led by a very professional instructor. No attitude and nothing to elevate ego over the students (as sometimes experienced elsewhere). Always happy to answer questions and figure out specific techniques pertinent to our jobs. A great experience over the entire course. Friendly staff. Beautiful location. Nicely timed breaks. Would definitely recommend.

  17. Nandi

    It is a lot to learn in short time so it is a bit tricky to evaluate if the exact learning/teaching route is optimal for every design background/interest. I have a background of multiple fields – 3D being one of them, and I could make good use of what I learned in 3 days.

  18. Frederique

    covered lots of different aspects of the programme.

  19. Dean

    great course, a good foundation of the basics of C4D.
