  8. Rated 5 out of 5

    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.
