    1. Mark Butler

      Matt was extremely patient and methodical showing us the key elements for a very complex piece of software. it was fun too.

    2. Jacqui Irving, Nutshell

      I first discovered Academy Class through the Cross Media 2013 exhibition. They instantly understood my problems, recommended some excellent solutions and I have already been on two training courses with more planned. They are friendly, approachable and flexible. I would highly recommend them, it’s certainly opening opportunities for our business.

    3. Joakim

      It was a lot to cover in just a week, but our tutor was lovely and when I came back to the office I could showcase my new skills without his help, which speaks for itself. I even considered a career change as I enjoyed it more than my day job!

    4. Josephine Clair

      I started the course with literally zero knowledge and by the end I knew everything I needed to know. The Instructor was very knowledgeable and knew all the answers. I have enrolled for the After Effects course and really looking forward to it. Academy Class was a great experience for me.
