Photoshop Masterclass Training

The Advanced Photoshop course was excellent, the trainer was very knowledgeable and was flexible enough for us to come along with issues that he could train us on. I would say this was the best course I've had in many years

Course Feedback

The advanced course in Photoshop enabled me to better understand the background dynamics of the programme.... I was impressed by the tutor who was extremely clear and responded exhaustively all to the different queries that were raised. Finally the training environment was very comfortable and friendly which made me feel relaxed and at my ease.

Rein Skullerud - World Food Programme

Very useful course, much of what I was taught I will be teaching my students. The tutor's knowledge was excellent and they were very patient. The teach was varied and open to questions on anything that individuals wanted to address.

May Everett - Bhasvic College

The course was extremely well prepared and carried out. This is the second time I have had the Trainer and as before, she was very thorough and made sure that all questions were answered. Definitely recommend this course for other designers.
