Acrobat Section 508 Accessibility BootCamp Training Course Reviews:

“All around, comparing to previous Acrobat 508 classes I have taken at other places, this is by far the best! The other classes I’ve taken were a waste of time and money – and I wish I would have known or heard of ThinkB!G Learn Smart then. Well worth the money. Very hands-on and calling our instructor knowledgeable would be an injustice. He introduced us to things that we had never even heard of or even thought would be possible to do. I’m on Cloud 9 right now and ready for my next course in December.” – Kiesha W. – TSA

“This Acrobat 508 Compliance training was perfectly paced to cover all topics without being overwhelming, with plenty of time to explore specific student-led examples; entirely hands-on so we could work along. I feel like I will retain and use a lot of what I learned.” – Lindsay E. – Department of Labor

“I have a project that needs the pdfs to be 508 compliant back to the customer. I had read up about it and had a vague idea of what needed to be done, but this class totally enlighten the work I have in front of me! I’m glad I signed up for this course!” – Becki T. Gateway Press
