I learnt so much in such a short amount of time and I really liked how he gave us time to have a go at things ourselves as he was speaking and also time to ask questions as we were going along. The technical set up/support was really helpful before the course started, they even made the effort to check up that I had received all the information and that InDesign was downloaded. Overall very good training."

Great personality and he came across brilliantly in his first virtual training session (confirmed by him) I really enjoyed the small group of four that we had and I would suggest keeping the groups small where possible. Matt was also very patient with my absolute beginner skills and never had an issue with going over the same thing many many times... I would definitely come back and feel like I can go and use InDesign confidently at work, with the basics learned. Thanks very much!"
