"Clear, concise and informative teaching. The group sizes were perfect for the class."

"Absolutely fantastic, really thorough introduction to photoshop, Simo was so eloquent at describing everything in simple terms. Never felt rushed or like we were moving too fast.Really good to have regular coffee and biscuit breaks as I found it quite exhausting. Perfect number of people (there were six of us) to teacher ratio. Lots of good tips to take away. Fantastic post engagement options. Has given me such a solid introduction to photoshop and I now feel really confident in using it."

Perfect pace of course. Good clean environment as ever. Highly organised organisation and trainer. course did what it said on the tin and more."

"The ability to answer question about other areas of the program in which we were using, even if it wasn't specifically relevant to the course objectives. It was very useful for myself due to what I do for my day to day job, and being able to apply the knowledge from the retouching side of things and transfer them to my somewhat artworking side of my job in order to make posters and people within it look more appealing to the eye. I felt all the topics that we covered, were done at the right pace in order for to absorb information quickly and efficiently like we would in any other working environment in my eyes that is. "
