City Desktop Training delivers the highest quality education at a top venue where every student uses state-of-the-art equipment and software. We think every student deserves to learn in a professional environment and should receive top service going from morning arrival to the closing subjects of a course. Adobe agree with us and that is why we’re proud to be an Adobe Authorised Training Centre.

3. Money back GUARANTEE

We’re grateful and often overwhelmed by the feedback we receive about our courses, facilities and instructors, and for that reason, we are confident you will have a great learning experience with us, but if and for whatever reason, our courses don’t suit you, we’ll refund your money in full. Just let the instructor know by midday on the first day of a 2 day course or the morning break of a 1 day course and we’ll organise your refund. See our Terms & Conditions for details.

4. Free Course Resit

If you get back to the office and don’t use what you’ve learnt straight away, know that you can come back and redo your course - or part of your course - completely free within 9 months. Book your free resit (For public courses only and some conditions may apply.)

5. One year after course support

Do you have any questions or problems concerning the new techniques you’ve learned during your course? Just place your issue on our help desk page – and you’ll get the support you need, generally within 24 hours. Our students receive 1 year of support, so don’t waste your precious time and get in touch.


Are you unsure of the type of course that suits your needs? Then send us your projects and tell us your objectives. This way you’re sure to attend the course that’s right for you, or even participate in a custom one-to-one session where we focus on your business and even work with your own projects.

7. MAC and PC

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a Mac or PC lover, we’ve got you covered. So specify your preferred system when booking your course and it’ll be ready with your name on it when you arrive.
