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.
4.4 stars Rob was patient with all students, and would go back to review with each student if the student did not understand the first time of instruction. Even though I had some experience I learned alot more by taking the Boot Camp Training. Thank You Rob.
5.0 stars Mckinley was an amazing instructor and I would definitely love to take another class with her. She was very informative and also entertaining throughout the course. She explained each step clearly and also assisted us when we needed her help. She was great. I would recommend her to anyone. Triple thumbs up as an instructor.
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 I loooooved this course and everything McKinley taught us. I didn't know what to expect, but I'm so impressed by the ground we were able to cover in such a short amount of time. I would highly recommend this course and would be super interested in taking any other class she teaches that might match my interest.
5.0 stars AMAZEBALLS!!!! My style of learning! Throw me in the water and tech me how to back stroke! GREAT BOOCAMP!!!
4.6 stars McKinley was incredibly knowledgeable in the field of video graphics, as well as having expertise in complimentary areas to give a full understanding. She was very patient with questions and was able to find alternative ways of explaining concepts so everyone could understand.
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 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.
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.
4.9 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.
4.9 stars Instructor has a very relatable and easy teaching style. He never talks over your head about topics and provides easy to understand explanations to questions. He's very passionate and enthusiastic about the material which makes the class more interesting.
4.4 stars This course was spectacular. I feel like I've learned more than I could anticipate and look forward to applying my new skills to both work and personal video production. There was a lot of information, some of which I think I will forget, so having the supplemental material is definitely helpful. After Effects is a comprehensive tool and there is much I still need to learn. I will try to get my employer to let me sign up for the advanced course next.
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!
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.
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.
5.0 stars I enjoyed this class very much. I have never used After Effects before, but after the first day of this class I felt like I could make really good basic effects. I will be able to use everything that I learned this week.
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 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 Kristian was an amazing teacher and was incredibly thorough, patient, and knowledgeable. Great guy and great class! Will recommend for sure.
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.
4.4 stars Great class with great information. Rob does not just 'follow the book' which is great. Learned a lot about After Effects and more. Excited to use After Effects when I get back home.
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!
5.0 stars An absolutely amazing class! I came thinking I knew a lot, and quickly found out - not so much! McKinley, thank you!
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!
4.8 stars I can't say enough how fantastic McKinley is as an instructor. Her real world experience coupled with examples that are extremely useful, make this seem more like personal one-on-one training rather than a class. I am definitely going to look into the other classes she teaches and see about signing up for them. She is very professional and extremely pleasant and I will recommend to colleagues that they take any class she teaches.
5.0 stars I wasn't sure what to expect of the classes. The class set up was top notch. The computers provided were of high quality and set up properly. Our instructor, Kristian Gabriel was genuinely excited to teach us the concepts and application of After Effects. That helped me to be engaged in the class. The course was very deep and intense at times with a ton of good, usable information. I would definitely recommend and take another class.
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.
4.9 stars One of the best instructors I have ever had for learning a new software. Explained everything thoroughly and paused at anytime to help a student if they had a problem. Will try and take another course with this instructor.
