stars “This class was awesome! I am amazed at the power of this program and the ways that you can apply this to so many things in the real world. Our instructor (Eva) came highly recommended and after 3 days - I can understand why! She was passionate, excited about what she was teaching, gave us real world examples - I would recommend her to others as well. Thank you for providing an overall A+ experience. This facility was clean, modern, a great place to learn!” BECKY SZTELLE
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!” Grace Ko
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. :(” Peyton Nealis
