“This class helped plug the holes and structure my foundation of Photoshop knowledge. I look forward to the advanced level course.” – Anonymous

“I have taken many classes in the past 10 years and this has been the best experience thus far. The class size was small and the teacher and learning center were excellent.” Kristy G.- Oak Contracting

“The Photoshop class was very thorough with plenty of time for questions. Our instructor also tailored the program specifically to our use cases. It exceeded my expectations. Think Big is a wonderful onsite training facility and I will be returning for more courses. ” – Alexis M. – Key Technologies

“I worried this intro to Photoshop class would be too basic because I’ve been using Photoshop for a number of years, but within 20 minutes of the class starting, I already started learning about shortcuts and tips I didn’t know about. The instructor was great because she asked us what we wanted to concentrate on and then answered questions in those areas too (was great that she customized the lesson to student need).” – Holly R. – National Archives and Records Administration

“The intro to Photoshop class was terrific. Jane is an excellent teacher and I look forward to continuing to the next class in the series.” – Esther R. – Johns Hopkins Medicine

“I very much enjoyed the facility, staff and instruction. All you need is to bring is yourself, everything else is taken care of.”– Joaquina B. – Department of Defense

“The course covers what is needed to work with Adobe Photoshop at a beginners level. The training center is very comfortable, very well equipped and the instructors and staff make for a very positive learning experience. Amtrak has used Think Big now for many Adobe courses with very positive results.” – Richard R. – Amtrak

“I will definitely recommend this training to my colleagues and my leadership as it provides a solid foundation for general Adobe Photoshop basics or the foundation for the overall software version enhancements for the most current Photoshop software. Although having pre-existing Photoshop experience, the training provided information that I had not previously obtained in other informal (OJT) learning.” -Paula Green, Photoshop Intro Training class – Paula G., Photoshop Intro Training Class – Columbia, MD

“This place is the absolute best training facility I have ever been to. The instructors are extremely knowledgeable in their subject matter and are eager to teach. The class sizes are small. They make breakfast, lunch, drinks, and snacks available to you throughout the day. I honestly can’t speak highly enough about this facility.” -Amanda C., Social Security Administration

“The Intro to Photoshop course was great to introduce new techniques to do things more efficiently than the way that I have been doing things to get the same results.” Gina M., A2

“Excellent class. Timing structure was great and we covered everything I could possibly need. Our instructor was very friendly. I really couldn’t have asked for anything more perfect. There was also [Christine, the CEO, who] always came out to check on us during our lunch breaks to greet us with a smile and see how we were doing. The person at the front desk always had a smile. It’s nice to see that the people who work here are so happy and will greet you with a smile so you know you can ask them for anything you may need.” -Krystal D., American Institute of Physics

I really enjoyed the overall environment, set up, and teaching style of the course. Chad was an awesome teacher and very helpful with all of our questions. I have been in a few photoshop classes where the teacher wasn’t able to answer our questions because there were too many of us, or too much content to go over, so we got lost. This environment was a great size, very interactive, very comfortable, and having food on site made the experience care free and very low stress. I REALLY enjoyed this class and hope to take more here! I would recommend this to anyone! I definitely feel confident offering my skills in the work environment now! We have a few projects coming up, and I feel very sure that I could help create great projects and use everything I learned in this course. These new skills will help me so much at work and personal as well. Thank you so much!” – Emmaline N., The Agora

“The Intro to Photoshop course was great to introduce new techniques to do things more efficiently then the way that I have been doing things to get the same results.” – Gina M., A2LA
