John was professional and knowledgeable regarding Adobe Captivate. He was patient and helpful when I required clarification on certain points.
(3.90 out of 5) Sasha H [ 24 February, 2022 ]
The instructor was able to adapt delivery to accommodate my lack of software and was able to still deliver the content in a way where I was able to understand key messages, and I was provided with additional resources and ongoing support to ensure I had all that I need to gain value from the training.

Excellent course. Very informative and the pace was great. The instructor was very helpful and showed lots of helpful hints and tricks. The material was well structured and easy to follow.
(5.00 out of 5) Matthew R [ 21 October, 2021 ]
I liked the hands on approach, although working on the laptop at home was tricky as captivate was quite slow and lagging. I ended up watching more than practising, but I found it really useful and I feel that I have upskilled.
