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)
