Perfect choice! Classroom great! Fantastic people and facilities! They were very welcoming everyday, so I looked forward to the course very much! Thanks again for a great course - will in touch again later!


A very thorough introduction to InDesign, as a novice I now feel I have more than adequate knowledge to use the program successfully in my work.
