Catherine

Background

  • Name: Catherine Nelms
  • Company: Fire Industry Association
  • Location: London
  • Course: Adobe Photoshop Masterclass + Adobe Certified
  • Date: January - April, 2017
  • Qualification obtained: Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) in Adobe Photoshop

Why did you choose this Certitec training course?

I had no previous experience at all using Photoshop and my job can be really creative and diverse, often calling on my design skills to create banners, adverts, and edit photos to make them suitable for print in magazines. I knew that Photoshop would help with that - plus save our business money in the long run if I could take on some design work rather than outsourcing to a media agency. However, I needed to get the skills as quickly as possible. I chose the 5 day Photoshop course with the exam as I knew it would get me where I wanted to be in a very short time. Time, as they say, is money! And we had a number of projects coming up at work that were really going to need my new skillset.

What did you think of the training facility and area?

Covent Garden is super easy to get to and the facility was easier to find than expected. Being able to get out at lunchtime and have the whole of Covent Garden to choose somewhere to eat was really handy, especially with the provided lunch vouchers.

How do you rate your trainer and their instructional skills?

Our trainer was very knowledgeable. The course was really well planned and easy to follow, even for a complete novice like me. I have since had other training courses at different locations on other Adobe programs and the trainers were nowhere near as good. I wish I'd booked again with Certitec!

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

I work for a very small company, so no, I didn't gain more work or a promotion. However, I felt much more equipped to be able to do some aspects of my job much better and quicker.

Why would you recommend this training course to others?

I would absolutely recommend since I felt all my expectations were met!
