    1. Richard Blakeborough

      I took the AutoCAD Yellow Belt 101 course at Academy Class Manchester and was impressed by the thorough and comprehensive way that the course was delivered. Simon, our tutor, made the whole application very interesting and the whole service was both friendly and professional.

    2. Rookie

      To be completely honest the course far exceeded my expectations. I felt it was incredibly useful. On top of that I think the facilities are brilliant, good locations friendly relaxed people. I thought it was particularly good that there were things, such as meal vouchers, tea coffee etc which whilst only small made me feel as though you guys went the extra mile. I would come back for further courses and i would recommend it to other people.

    3. Angelo D.

      I recently did the AutoCAD 101 Yellow Belt at Academy Class. I found the tutors to be very knowledgable with great teaching techniques, I have learned much am and now using the program on a daily basis. I do think due to Academy I am now learning even faster and using AutoCAD very efficiently. I do now look forward to my next two course which I have already booked.

    4. Toine H.

      I cannot recommend Academy Class enough. A thoroughly useful experience and well worth it! All staff are willing to help in any way they can and will listen to your needs. The instructor for the AutoCAD course Ricardo De Jesus was a great instructor who knew everything there was to know about the program. An excellent experience and one which may lead to other courses in the future. I knew nothing about AutoCAD before beginning, but now feel that I can comfortably use the program for my needs. Excellent!!!

    5. Daren-Marc H.

      Excellent course for beginners! Great format & supporting material. Highly recommend the AutoCAD Yellow Belt for anyone starting out in CAD.

    6. Leonardisme

      I enrolled for an AutoCAD introductory course, and after it was completed I felt completely satisfied. I learnt new skills that will help with my employment and found that Academy Class is a very supportive and consistent educator, I would definitely sign up for another course whenever needed, and would recommend it to anyone.

    7. Verified Client

      Having attended the AutoCad Yellow Belt 101 course with no previous experience, I walked away from the 3 days with a good knowledge of the software and an ability to immediately apply it to my company as a prop maker. The staff were all extremely helpful and welcoming, and the tutor, Ricardo De Jesus, was equally friendly, clear, experienced and informative. I am certainly looking to continue my learning with Academy class further and found it fulfilled my requirements across the board. Highly recommended!

    8. Verified Client

      Excellent course! Great format & supporting course material! I sat the 3 day AutoCAD Yellow Belt with Ricardo as the tutor & got to say he was informative & above all PATIENT! Highly rate Academy Class & will be sitting further courses with them.

      I thought it was very good and wish to further my education in this software

    10. Mac

      Really nice and concise content, that was curated specifically towards us.

    11. Esmeralda

      The course has been really great. Ruta is very welcoming and makes you feel at ease. My only comment is that I think that, for my ability, level I would have liked it to be a little slower.

      Ruta is a very good teacher and exercised a lot of patience and very approachable.

    21. Ben

      Very informative and useful, good to get a certificate at the end. Possibly would like to have had more tasks to complete individually and maybe gone over some areas slightly slower or go over harder areas a few times.

    22. Matt

      I struggle with dyslexia and at times found the trainer going too quickly. The trainer would kindly show me things again which was great.

    27. Clodagh

      Really enjoyed the 101 course, we managed to get a lot covered in 3 days whilst having plenty of time to work through any queries we had along the way. Ruta is a fantastic instructor, she was patient and helpful and took on board our specific requests for teaching items we felt we need in our day to day work. The structure was on point and flowed very well. We all enjoyed the course and had a great time with Ruta.
