Went the Extra Mile! Thank you!
"Think BIG. Learn Smart provided an outstanding experience in the Adobe Acrobat XI Pro training. It was a 2 day training for the Advanced class and I left with a lot of new knowledge, well beyond what I expected to learn. TBLS went the extra mile providing breakfast foods and a catered lunch, which was not only delicious, but a great time saver. Thank you for two great days of learning." - Stacey R. - WCC (Adobe Acrobat Pro Advanced)

Related the Information to Needs of Your Company or Organization.
"Very helpful, relevant training to my job. Our trainer was an excellent instructor and extremely helpful to answer any questions and relate the information to the needs of your company or organization. It does not go straight from the book and is helpful to get a very good overview to learn Adobe Acrobat XI." - Bridget P. - Maryland Government (Advanced Adobe Acrobat Pro Advanced Training)

Don't Want to Learn From Any Other Training Facility.
"Think BIG, like last time I was here, put on another great class!! I have been here twice now and don't want to learn from any other training facility. The way and thoroughness of the instructor left no questions to be asked. I would advise anyone that would like to learn anything by Adobe come to Think BIG.
