Recent student feedback

4.9 stars I have now taken the Illustrator and InDesign classes with Chana and I think that she is amazing. I'm so glad that I took her two classes as well as the Photoshop class with Beverly. I'm now hooked to Adobe and I can't wait to practice at home! I wish that you guys had night or weekend classes because I don't think that my work would let me take more time off. :(
4.5 stars As someone with previous Illustrator experience, I found myself surprised by the number of new concepts, tips, and tricks I learned from the Training Connection course. Eva was knowledgeable, friendly, upbeat, and had a wonderful way of making the material approachable and easy to absorb.
4.9 stars Teacher was thorough, fun, engaging and not only answered questions but gave demonstrations of how to answer them. The step by step instruction paired with smaller projects as time went on seemed more effective than learning tools within the context of larger projects. Great teacher- fun class!
4.9 stars I'm very glad that I took this course. After only 3 days, I feel like I have a full grasp of Adobe Illustrator tools and how to best use them. I learned many tips and tricks that I will apply in real world situations. Gabriel was a wonderful instructor. He made the class fun, informative, and went above and beyond with every aspect of the class. I can't wait to take more classes with him! I learned more in these short 3 days than I learned in all of my online courses on sites like lynda.com. There's no substitute for a live teacher where you can ask all of the questions you want and get detailed answers on the spot. Thank you to Jeff, Gabriel and Training Connection Team!
