My coworkers and I completed the Adobe Premiere Pro Basics course. Max paced the course perfectly and ensured everyone... in the room was working at the same level. Max was patient and kind and personable. Tim was also very kind and the general atmosphere in the studio was relaxed and approachable. Most importantly there were biscuits and caffeine.read more

I recently did the Adobe Premiere Pro Essentials course in Melbourne. From my first contact with Tim who was helpful... with all my questions during booking through to the wizardry of the trainer Ben during the course, I found the course extremely well put together and informative. As a novice to Premiere Pro I was initially anxious about what to expect but the course was delivered in a way that could cater to the different levels of expertise and experience of everyone on the course. The training facilities and computers were first rate. I now have the confidence to use Adobe Premiere Pro without being overwhelmed and, as a bonus, have the opportunity to do a free refresher in the next 6 months. Thanks City Desktop for the great training and I fully recommend it to others! Cheers Darrenread more

I have just completed the Photoshop Essentials training over the two days online. David B is an incredible trainer,... even online, and I paid attention the entire time! His enthusiasm for the program and how he knows the software inside and out, how it has improved, and how he could even guide us across different VERSIONS of the software was incredible! If you are intimidated by Photoshop, don't be - David will make it fun and accessible.read more

I highly recommend the Adobe InDesign Essentials course at City Desktop Training for anyone working as a marketing or... communications professional, it equips you with a basic understanding of how InDesign works. Whether you have a role that involves hands on graphic design or if you work with graphic designers, it makes your work so much easier when you understand basic principles such as how to prepare or export files for web and print output. I have been working in roles where design takes up a large chunk of my responsibilities and although I've been using InDesign here and there over the past 10 years, it was great to learn how to use it properly. This course covers the essentials and need to knows, our instructor David B also shared a lot of helpful hints and shortcuts which will make my workflow more efficient.read more

I did the InDesign Essentials training and found it to be informative and incredibly helpful in developing my skills... with InDesign. David was a wonderful presenter as he was very engaging and passionate, which made two days worth of back-to-back online training enjoyable! I've found that online training can sometimes be monotonous, however, this certainly wasn't the case with City Desktop. Thank you, David!read more

I completed the Photoshop Advanced course online and had a great teacher and resources provided during the training.... These resources included and extensive folder of images, PSD files and some premade photoshop actions to be used during the training, with many extra images to practice on my own time. There was also a printed booklet provided outlining many of the techniques taught in the course. The teacher took time to answer any questions I had and was very thorough and knowledgeable. The certificate was emailed to me immediately after the course was completed. For constructive criticism - I think structuring more parts of the course to simulate real world projects and workflow could elevate the learning. For example providing students a real-world client request and showing them the start-to-finish workflow to completion. Thanks for the lessons and I may use CDT again in the future.read more

I have just undertaken two days of virtual training with CDT for Adobe Acrobat Pro DC Essentials and Adobe Forms. The... training was very well delivered and the trainer was very knowledgeable and went the extra mile in making sure that all trainees were up to the same place and understanding the training as he went along. This has been one of the best virtual training sessions I have undertaken as we battle our way through the COVID "normal". Thank you to David and to CDT for the training provided.

I recently completed the online day course for Adobe InDesign Interactivity and highly recommend it. David's pace was... really easy to follow throughout the day, he advised us to ask questions via unmuting which helped to clarify questions and ensure we understood his response. Prior to this course I had reasonable skills in InDesign however I rarely used the program to its full potential and often went about it the long way! David provided some valuable shortcuts - encouraging a "work smart not hard approach", as well as a number of different ways to integrate these skills into our work to create impressively functional, tasteful, accessible documents. I'd highly recommend this course to anyone who is competent in the InDesign Essentials who wants to lift their skills and use the program to its full potential and improve their marketing collateral.read more
