      Susannah Hall was an excellent instructor.

    2. Tim

      Excellent facilities; knowledgeable and amiable tutor. The next time I’m looking for a training course, Ill certainly look at Academy Class first.

    3. Verified Client

      Great course supplied by Academy Class and we got a huge amount from it. Really well delivered and pitched at the right level, many thanks to Marc for the good day!

    4. Helen D.

      Took a 5-day Adobe Captivate course. It was a big investment, but worth it because the learning doesn’t stop with the 5 days. Lots of materials are provided to help you maintain and develop your skills post-course. Great location and friendly staff.

    5. Verified Client

      A 5 day Adobe Captivate training course. Great location, helpful staff and I learnt a lot. The post-course support to maintain your skills is excellent too. It was a big investment – but I think it was value for money.

    6. Sarah Covell, NHS Digital

      I attended a week long course learning how to use Adobe Captivate 9. As a complete beginner with no experience of eLearning design, Academy Class was the perfect place to learn. Excellent venue and facilities and a superb trainer who went at a pace to suit all the class. I came back to work enthused and experienced and ready to use my new skills.
