Why did you choose this Certitec training course?

After a lot of research It became clear to me that Certitec was the only real option considering online feedback and course location.

What did you think of the training facility and area?

The facilities at 90 Long Acre are exceptional, the staff are all extremely friendly and approachable from the reception/door staff through to the instructors.
The location can't be faulted Covent garden is a wonderful area loads of food choices and a great place to just have a wander.

How do you rate your trainer and their instructional skills?

I've been lucky enough to have attended Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign and MUSE courses at the Certitec facility and have had the pleasure of three different trainers. All of them have been excellent both on a technical and supportive level.

Did you gain more work/a promotion/a new job as a result of the training?

Prior to training with Certitec I was responsible for about 50% of the design output required by my company the rest being handed to outside agencies, since my training I'm now responsible for 99% of all our design output, such are the skills that Certitec have given me.

Why would you recommend this training course to others?

Comprehensive training packages, first class trainers, excellent facilities, fabulous location and very reasonably priced.

Charlotte

Background

  • Company: McCann and Partners
  • Location: Cardiff
  • Course: Adobe InDesign Masterclass + Adobe Certified
  • Date: January, 2017
  • Qualification obtained: Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) in Adobe InDesign

Why did you choose this Certitec training course?

I started a new job as an office manager in a Design Consultancy, and instead of using PowerPoint for presentations they had moved to InDesign to match what Architects and Main Contractors were using - it was a totally different ball game so I needed help quickly!

What did you think of the training facility and area?

Lovely facility, comfortable space, easy to learn as a small group and following your tutor on screen was perfect.

How do you rate your trainer and their instructional skills?

Terry Kendrick is an absolutely fantastic trainer, passionate, personable and very thorough - with the advanced course (with exam) we covered such a lot in a short space of time but he made it bearable and helped us feel confident. Terry made the environment open and friendly so even us students ended up making friends and going for lunch - since my course I have booked 3 colleagues onto the same course with Terry.

Did you gain more work/a promotion/a new job as a result of the training?

Not yet but I could do - it has just made my job far easier now I understand InDesign.

Why would you recommend this training course to others?

I already have booked three of my colleagues onto the same course! Great courses, Great tutors followed by great results - you get exactly what it says on the tin!

Claire

Background

  • Company: AQA
  • Location: London
  • Course: Adobe InDesign Masterclass + Adobe Certified
  • Date: March, 2017
  • Qualification obtained: Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) in Adobe InDesign

Why did you choose this Certitec training course?

I was looking to hone my InDesign skills and Certitec offered the full works: the courses I attended explored all the nooks and crannies of the software, including animation, online publishing and preparing pages for commercial printers!

What did you think of the training facility and area?

The London facility in Covent Garden is ideally located (I even managed to get a standing ticket at the Royal Opera House after a hard day's training!). The lay out works well for group teaching. The screens were all large and new.

How do you rate your trainer and their instructional skills?

I was taught by three different trainers and all of them were excellent. I was nervous about taking the Adobe exam and the tutor did a great job to ensure that I was well prepared - I passed first time. I also enjoyed the various anecdotes from the trainers' experiences in the field as designers. I could have listened to Jon talk about ink for a whole week!

Did you gain more work/a promotion/a new job as a result of the training?

I'm using InDesign more frequently than before, and I'm now able to focus solely on publishing projects - brilliant!

Why would you recommend this training course to others?

These courses are led by competent trainers who are passionate about the software - there's nothing they don't know about design and layout!
