Introduction to Adobe Dreamweaver Training Course Reviews From Our Students

“Excellent intro course, not only for Dreamweaver, but for the programming languages (HTML/CSS) that are absolutely necessary in order to fully comprehend Dreamweaver. We also reviewed best practices for good web design. Very useful, practical and highly recommended!”– Chris S.

“I will see a meteoric rise in productivity and content creation! The Dreamweaver training was very engaging rather than lecture, questions were easily answered and the content was explained well.” – Christopher D.

“The training facility is excellent and this instructor was even better than usual. He was able to move at a reasonable pace to cover all the material without losing any students. He was excellent at communication and teaching skills, one of the best I have ever encountered anywhere!” – William D.

“This Dreamweaver training has given me the tools need to begin preparing our company website. Comfortable and fun atmosphere. Instructor very knowledgeable and helpful.” – Candice C.

“The instructor was very informative. I gained skills from this Dreamweaver training which will allow me to go back to my new position as a web designer and immediately apply them.” – Lisa H. – Department of Defense

“I thought the Dreamweaver training was very good, it was at a good pace, and the instructor knew the subject completely. It was one of the better courses I have taken over the years.” – Bill M. – Paragon Consulting Services

“I would recommend this Dreamweaver class because of the training environment (updated equipment was used) and the knowledge of the facilitator. Rarely do I get to complete the entire syllabus and the small class size played a big role in that endeavor.” Janet P. – Johns Hopkins

“This was my first time taking formal web design course. Intro to Adobe Dreamweaver CC was the perfect class to grasp a basic understanding of how to build a website. I would highly recommend this class to anyone. Our instructor, Trevor, was extremely knowledgeable and helpful.” – Shari K. – Emergency Power Services Inc.

“Trevor was great! I’ve been to several IT classes/courses and his delivery was the most practical. It was all about how you can use the material and never did he mention a dreadful certification exam. BTW, the location, facility, and professionalism of the staff we have me sending others back to ThinkBigLearnSmart!” – Travis J. – NES Associates

“This was an awesome Dreamweaver class, very informative. I learned a lot, and the instructor was very knowledgeable. On top of that, the whole experience was great. The facilities are very nice, and we were spoiled with breakfast, lunch, and lots of other refreshments and treats!” – Celene N.

“Instructor is knowledgeable and the environment is conducive to learning.” – Isidore A.

Currently, I am responsible for maintaining our program’s website. Without any previous knowledge (or creditable training) I had to teach myself the basics of Dreamweaver. After taking this class I have gained more knowledge to make the website updates without questioning the accuracy & whether it’s being done correctly.” – Gretchen B.  – OP Consulting

“The instructor of the training course was awesome and had a wealth of knowledge to include the delivery of the information that allowed for a great learning environment.” – Matthew F., DINFOS
