4.9 stars My fave instructor, ever. This was a fun, informational class that I really enjoyed and learned a lot from. It wasn't too advanced, and it wasn't too simple. The instructor paid attention to our level of comfort. Thanks!
5.0 stars This class was awesome. The only regret that I have was that I didn't do it sooner! Kristian was awesome! He far surpassed any expectations I had. His skills and teaching methods were top notch. His patience and concern for the students to learn was great. I would highly recommend this class to anyone. So glad I got to do this. Thanks Kristian!
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!
5.0 stars Excellent. Best Adobe training that we have received. Kristian is extremely adept at tailoring the coursework to align with career goals.
4.9 stars The class was wonderful. Many questions I had when I walked in ended up being answered. Rob is an excellent instructor, and the classroom training is worth every penny. Also, making the training lessons available for home use is handy.
5.0 stars McKinley Marshall is now the best teacher I have ever had going back to elementary. She did a wonderful job in everything this course had to offer. She kept everyone engaged and worked at a pace that was perfect for beginners to advanced AE editors. The course was everything I needed to execute my ideas in my profession. Thank you to McKinley for doing such a great job with everything and I look forward to taking more classes here at Training Connections.
5.0 stars The After Effects class was great. I learned a ton in only three days and now feel equipped to take on my own projects.
5.0 stars I really enjoyed this course. I enjoyed the wide range of examples and Rob had a great balance of scaffolding each lesson so that I felt more confident with each exercise. I also appreciated the small class size. Thank you, Rob!
4.9 stars This After Effects Fundamentals class is an absolutely fantastic class. I feel confident that I know have the basic skill-set and hands on experience to be able to navigate the program with confidence. I am also aware that the key to success for a lot of these programs is practice and patience. McKinley was a patient kind and fun teacher. She maintained a great level of enthusiasm and instruction; she is extremely knowledgeable and shared a high level of confidence in her skill-set and professionalism. Overall, this was an awesome way to learn and to spend a day! Thank you.
4.5 stars I gained extra value and context from McKinley's detailed introductions to each lesson, making it easier for me to understand and learn what we were doing. She gave great personal and professional examples of use of the skills and AE tools. I like the inclusion and reminders of good workflow practice. Super fun personality.
5.0 stars Kristian was a great instructor, very knowledgeable, entertaining and extremely well organized. He was able to keep the class moving while adding interesting sidebars that made it enjoyable to attend.
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 Great class with real world examples. Questions were answered and instructor was patient and kept pace with class' abilities. Would come back for sure.
5.0 stars Rob Schultz is an absolutely outstanding instructor -- extremely knowledgeable, very patient, highly skilled. I can't believe how much I've learned about After Effects in just a few days. This course will pay for itself many times over in terms of increased productivity and much higher production levels. Now I really want to take the Premiere Pro course!
5.0 stars Love this course. Kristian Gabriel is the best. Friendly, patient and great teaching techniques. Very creative. This is my second time here. Had so much fun the first time I had to come back. This training has really changed my career as an editor. Looking forward to taking more Adobe courses here in the future. Thanks!
5.0 stars Kristian was an amazing teacher and was incredibly thorough, patient, and knowledgeable. Great guy and great class! Will recommend for sure.
4.9 stars I've taken this course before and decided to take the refresher course before my 6 month period was over and am very glad I did. It allowed me to revisit concepts that I hadn't thought about since first learning them some months ago and think progressively as of how to apply them for future projects versus the regular tools/techniques I found myself falling into. McKinley is an incredible instructor and very thorough in going through the material that the book leaves out. Thanks!
4.9 stars Rob was awesome. Great Job Rob! I lam hoping to attending future trainings ith TC.
4.7 stars Rob Shultz was an absolutely wonderful teacher and I walked away with more knowledge in 5 days than I could've ever figured out from any book or googling. He had helpful hints and in-depth knowledge of almost all questions and subjects After Effects related and was able to cater the experience to each student's specific needs.
5.0 stars Excellent course that has opened up many new possibilities for us work wise. The instructor shared many real world concepts that will help us apply these new skills to what we do on a regular basis.
4.9 stars The professor was very knowledgeable about the program and willing to go off topic to teach other aspects of the program when asked questions. I am very pleased with the overall experience of the class and the teacher.
4.7 stars McKinley was an excellent instructor and had a vast amount of knowledge to answer all of my questions. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for real world education. Not a simple follow the book and do your home work.
4.4 stars I really enjoyed this course. Even though I have been using Adobe After Effects for about 6 years, I feel like learning the fundamentals along with other beginners from scratch was very useful for filling in some of the gaps of my understanding of the software. Looking forward to taking the Advanced Class and really sharpening my skills!
4.9 stars Kristin was very patient and a pleasure! He was very knowledgeable and great at troubleshooting! I enjoyed him very much and wish we could take more classes with him!!!
5.0 stars Rob was very patient, and made it easy to ask questions... I had a lot of them, and he never made me feel like I was disrupting his teaching. He spoke slowly and re-explained directions enough for the material to sink in. I will definitely recommend to my team!
5.0 stars McKinley was so helpful and knowledgeable. I come from a print background and a lot of the After Effects concepts were new and challenging but she made it fun and accessible. I'm excited to use can't recommended this class enough.
4.6 stars We covered a lot of material in a few short days. McKinley really knows her stuff and it made all the difference. The class was both informative and fun. I would definitely take another course with the Training Connection and recommend to others.
4.9 stars This is my second class here. I took Premiere Pro with McKinely, which was really helpful in learning After Effects. Both of those worked together so that each one reinforced the concepts of the other and I feel more confident in my editing skills. I am extremely excited to take what I learned here and apply those skills in my work place.
5.0 stars McKinley Marshall was absolutely the best. She explained everything so well and was patient and spent time answering any and all questions we had. I absolutely loved taking her class and felt like I benefitted a lot from her experience and teaching style. I feel super strong with After Effects now and it's because she laid such a solid foundation.
5.0 stars Once again, McKinley Marshall was an excellent teacher for the AE Boot Camp class. I had the privilege of taking her Premiere Pro Boot Camp class as well. McKinley is very informative, friendly, and funny. I would take another class with her in heartbeat. She takes time out to make each student feel confident when taking her class. The staff is very friendly and the facility is top notch. I would highly recommend Training Connection to anyone.
