  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    Excellent course as an introduction to the Creative Suite. Brilliant, knowledgeable tutors who check how you will be using the software and endeavor to teach you accordingly, even within the group. Class sizes varied over the three modules but maximum of 6/7 meant plenty of 1-1 tuition. Would recommend to anyone wanting to learn or brush up on the Adobe Creative Suite.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    The Designer’s Fiesta is an excellent learning day for anyone interested in design, web development and / or Adobe products. Having experience of only a couple of Adobe products I was uncertain how much I would get out of the day – the presenters were excellent, clearly masters in their field and enthusiastic to pass on their knowledge. They offered many additional tips and resources for further learning. I highly recommend this seminar.

  3. Rated 5 out of 5

    Training was carried out in a small group. The facilitator was very knowledgeable with a practical background. This encourages a group learning process. The exercises built up up skills and experience of using the software in a short space of time. A good location. Easy to walk to from Piccadilly Station.
