Best Training Center Ever!
"This is the best training center I've ever been to in my professional career. The staff are amazingly friendly, and they anticipate the needs of their customers... Such an added bonus to not have to worry about food when trying to learn a new skill. Being a vegetarian, the various options made my life easier. Love this." - Maya M., NIH (Apple Final Cut Pro Training)
American University AU Logo
A Wonderful Experience
"I really found this to be a wonderful experience. Super informative, helpful, and (considering how long you spent in the classroom) done in an entertaining manner. The small class size was wonderful for moving along quickly and effectively, and the entire operation was professional yet person. I look forward to taking at least one more class here in the future, and plan to keep in touch with my instructor, whose depth of experience and knowledge brought so much to the experience." - Michael N. - American University (Apple Final Cut Pro Course)
