Latest Reviews

"The trainer (Ian) was very approachable and friendly - you felt comfortable asking him any questions or going over anything you'd missed first time. He has given me lots of good ideas that I'll definitely use at work. This course really usefully supplements Media Training's InDesign courses. I'd recommend doing it between your InDesign: Introduction and InDesign: Intermediate courses. The course is well paced, with well-timed breaks and lunch. Although I particularly liked your previous centre as it was so funky and full of character, the new centre is as good as it can be. Very spacious and airy, very clean, great views!"
