Vicki was a fantastic trainer; she was so patient and was happy to go over lots of steps and enthusiastic throughout the course. Not only is she very knowledgeable, she was a fantastic instructor in teaching me InDesign for the first time. I am also so impressed that we get help even after the course should we need it; excellent aftercare. Thank you Vicki!"

"I was very impressed with everything about this training. Our trainer, Simo was friendly and knowledgeable and structured the training really well so that we moved through exercises at a good pace. I found the opportunity to work on some of my own projects at the end of the session with Simo's support an added bonus that I hadn't expected. I feel really well equipped to do what I need to do with PhotoShop in my day job now. Thank you so much and also to the staff at the centre, particularly Marianne who was extremely friendly and welcoming."

"Ian was impressive, really prepared with both learning materials (handouts) and practical tasks. The course gives you a great basic knowledge of Graphic Design, especially InDesign.

  • Expert - Ian


"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!"
