Think BIG Continues To Exceed Our Expectations!
This is the sixth training we have done with Think BIG and they continue to exceed our expectations! We will definitely look to ThinkBIG for future Adobe training! -MEIMSS, Nicole (Adobe Photoshop CC Advanced Live Hands-On Instructor-Led Training Class)
I Always Talk To A Human And Not a Computer!
I like how easy it is to work with ThinkBig to get training not just for me but for my team. I always talk to a human being and not a computer—which is a big plus for me. Since the pandemic started, I had to switch all of us to remote training, and ThinkBig allowed that seamlessly since they have already been offering virtual training since I discovered them. I definitely see our team coming back next year for another training list we would like to take. -DODIIS, Alexis (Adobe Photoshop CC Advanced Live Hands-On Instructor-Led Training Class)
