Autodesk Maya Training Course Reviews:

“It was great that training was able to come to us for private session. [The Instructor was ] very knowledgeable, good at time management and keeping students on track. The instructor gave expertise level instruction, I am impressed with his knowledge and ability to relate the material to beginners.” – Brittany C., FCPS

The Maya instruction definitely presented topics and was able to fill in knowledge gaps in a way online tutorials haven’t been able to. Would love to make it back for the advanced class!” – Rick H. NSA

“Looking at Maya, it’s easy to be intimidated by the interface alone. I came in to this class and learned more than I believed I would learn after only day 1, and by the end of my training I feel very confident to model and do basic levels of animation in Maya. The instructor was very knowledgeable and shows the do’s an do-not’s of using the software, and most importantly, was very patient while trying to learn. Additionally, the agenda is set so if you didn’t fully understand how to do something say on Day 1, you will learn how to do those steps again on future days while still moving ahead with the agenda (i.e., repetition of using the modeling tools). I highly recommend this Maya training class and I look forward to future Maya classes to further my 3D modeling and animation capabilities.” –Brandon S. – Department of Defense
