Adobe After Effects Training Course Reviews From Our Students

“I really enjoyed this class, it was very informative. The facilities are excellent, and the staff and instructor have been enormously helpful. I feel quite a bit more confident about using After Effects having taken this introductory class, and am excited to apply it to my work.”– Krissy M. – Inovalon

“I learn much better in a classroom than I do from online tutorials, so this is a great fit. I love the one-one-one support as well as meeting other people.” – Jill S.

“The courses at ThinkBig are excellent!!! The entire experience is wonderful. The staff is handpicked and they are the nicest people in the world. The training is great and the provided lunch and breakfast is simply the best. I will definitely be back for more future training.” – Andrea B.

Great training course if you want to understand the basics of After Effects. After the course you’ll have the tools necessary to expand your skill set on your own.” – Eli Z., AAMC

“I would definitely recommend this After Effects training to a colleague because the class can be tailored to use real life work examples. You can go more in depth into projects that you might use more often and practice so you can have the basics to perform a task and even if it doesn’t cover something, you have more of an idea of where you need to go to find a solution.” – Jade W. – TeleCommunication Systems

“I will definitely be back for more training. The ease and flexibility of doing online After Effects training was great as I was able to be both present at work and simultaneously “in the classroom.” Great job Think Big and a truly amazing instructor!”- Changa B. Georgetown University

“I had been using After Effects for a few months, but It helped me quickly get to the next level. It also helped solve some small problems I was having.” – Scott W.

“The facility is great, the screen that shows the instructor’s window is huge and visible from anywhere in the room, and my instructor was very knowledgeable. It helps that he is a working professional in the field, so he knows what tools and pieces of information are important. If you want to be taught by a working professional, Think Big is the spot. I loved my After Effects class – I’m looking to blow them away at work with my new skill set.” – Bemnet Y. – USA today

“I had an amazing training experience and I’m confident I can use the After Effects software on my own – and actually know what I’m doing!” – Sasha L. – Kaiser Permanente

“Instructor was knowledgable, friendly, and engaging. Unlike many other Adobe training classes that I’ve taken from other providers, my eyes were not glazing over. That might have something to do with the product in question, but regardless, I thought it was very worthwhile. Most importantly, I now feel quite comfortable with After Effects, which prior to this training seemed quite intimidating.” – David J. -U.S. Energy Information Administration

“Staff here are/were VERY!!!! friendly and helpful… My teacher is/was the BEST…. Seriously! Great attitude, fun not boring…. had no problem answering ANY question… good at teaching… Just GREAT! Nothing more to say… this has been one of the BEST places I’ve taken class.. I will be back!” – Gerald S. – Federal Reserve Board

“I received a comprehensive overview of After Effects, with subjects including how to create compositions and pre-compositions, how to add and animate media using various effect tools, how to adjust presets, and a brief overview of Cinema 4D. Even though I had some very basic knowledge of After Effects, this course made it so I can truly get the most out of the software. There are many tools in After Effects, and I was given a thorough run down of each one, and even the shortcuts for these features. This course will help me create more polished looking and professional graphics at my place of work.” – Jessica W. – James Madison University
