Extremely interactive and worthwhile. I have taken away so much more than I had expected and excited to put all my new knowledge into practice.

This is the second time i have taken this course. I am glad i came back a second time as i was struggling with piecing all the elements together.

Very valuable course, the instructor was patient while we were learning. Very knowledgeable as well, knew Adobe thoroughly
(4.90 out of 5) Moira H [ 03 April, 2018 ]
An enjoyable and informative workshop. I appreciated the fact that John worked to our needs and was willing to answer any questions that we had. It gave me a great overview of the product and how user friendly it was. It did assume prior knowledge of the package so sometimes lost me on where the functions where on the screen. But facilitator was patient with helping me catch up.
