Recent student feedback

4.9 stars This was an excellent class. I had very little experience with Flash. Ron was able to answer every question I had. He also worked at a pace that was reasonable. The course focused on navigation through the software as well as application and some theory. This was very valuable to me being a beginner. Continue teaching this course as you are, I benefited greatly.
5.0 stars Thank you for the time spent with you these last few weeks. Jeff, you are an excellent instructor. I can't wait to get back into the classroom and put these new skills to practice. Job well done, from the front desk staff to the instructors. I would highly recommend these courses to anybody who is serious about learning Adobe Flash.
5.0 stars Ron B. was helpful and very knowledgable in Flash. He showed me several examples of animations and the proper way to use it for web banners. He also helped me understand things in a organized and clear way which were very confusing before taking the course (i.e. Movie Clips, Symbols & Keyframes). Overall I am extremely happy with the results and the knowledge I acquired during this course. I would definitely recommend others to take this course. p.s.The Starbucks Coffee is also a plus during break time.
4.9 stars Jeff was experienced and professional. He is very willing to work with individual user needs. The learning experience surpassed my expectations.
