5.0 stars Rob Shultz Rocks! He is a Adobe PR and AE guru :) Rob's approach to teaching is effective and holistic. I've edited with Premiere for 6 years and wanted to add After Effects to my tool belt. In one week I have learned advance techniques to help polish my PR skills and now I know how to begin using AE. I can't tell you how many OMG moments I had, now my level of editing will go from amateur hour to animation power. LOL :) I'm really excited to see what I can do, Thank you Rob!Jennifer Tomasik
5.0 stars Kristian was one of the best yet software trainers that we have had. He engaged all in the class, did not hesitate to bring be along when I lost the training thread. He went outside the core software training to provide better understanding of what Ai was actually doing and why certain choices were more desirable than other. Can't say enough good about his knowledge/style.
5.0 stars I knew very little about After Effects before starting this course other than I really needed to learn it. This course exceeded my expectations greatly, as I found the hands-on, in-class learning environment to be a great way to learn sophisticated software. I now feel confident to take my own self-teaching to another level now that the intimidation I previously had is gone. The Training Connection company was very welcoming and the computer systems were great! It would be better if the footage files we had were of better HD or even 4K quality. Thanks!Stephon Litwinczuk

5.0 stars The level of detail offered was beyond what I expected; I greatly appreciated that. The instructor's knowledge of the software and all it's applications, including how it interacts with other programs is astounding. Her knowledge of video and audio technology, industries standards, and etc. is impressive. In addition, McKinley Marshall is a comprehensive instructor; she provides real world examples and uses humor as well. Terrific classCheryl Lee
