Adobe Flash Training

Animation & Interactivity for Banner Ads and Websites

Flash is the standard for animation on the web. It’s used to create most ad banners you see and more. While new web technologies like HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript are slowly beginning to change the landscape (especially on mobile devices) the reality is today, most ads are still built with Flash and it’s still a great skill for web designers to have.

Beginner to Intermediate

Animation & Fundamentals of Interactivity

Get started using Flash and learn how to animate! We’ll have you tweening (the basis of animation) in no time. Working with the timeline will be the primary focus of this training, but you’ll also be introduced to ActionScript, which lets you add interactivity and control beyond what the timeline provides.

ActionScript 2 Fundamentals

Interactivity for Banner Ads & Websites

ActionScript lets you go beyond basic animations to take Flash to the next level. In this training you’ll learn how to create a simple game, script animation, create progress bars and more.

We teach ActionScript 2 because it’s still heavily used (and often required) in banner ads and can be considerably simpler than ActionScript 3.

Why Train With Noble?

23 Years of Experience

Noble Desktop has been teaching computer graphics and web development since 1991. In all those years we have perfected the craft of teaching. If students get hung up on any issue, we tweak the class to make it work better. Every instructor uses the same time-tested curriculum we have developed. Ask around: Noble Desktop has a stellar reputation for exceptional web development, UX, and digital publishing training.


Our Teaching Method is Better

We don’t ask you to simply follow along as the instructor demonstrates. Instead, we ask you to listen and watch while the instructor teaches. This means you can focus 100% of your attention to the lesson at hand. After each demonstration, you then put into practice what you have learned by working on a computer with our step-by-step workbooks. The instructor is also freed up to walk around the classroom, giving one-on-one attention to your questions. This “learn, then practice” method results in the student learning and retaining much more than traditional “follow along” classes.


We Wrote the Book Ourselves

Most of our classes include a custom training workbook written by our top instructors. Take it home with you: with step-by-step exercises and power-user keyboard shortcut guides, it’s like having a refresher course right on your desk. We wrote the book ourselves because we couldn't find any book that was good enough. Now our books are being used by other schools and training centers worldwide.


We Provide Computers, Mac or PC

Since when did training centers expect you to bring a laptop? Noble Desktop has always had classrooms full of computers, Mac and PC. Each computer is loaded with software and has a 19-inch monitor. The next time you are asked to bring a laptop, ask why you aren't being provided a computer. Noble Desktop always has up-to-date equipment in our state-of-the-art classrooms. (Though you are welcome to bring a laptop if you prefer to work on your own machine.)


Not Just Anyone Can Teach

All our instructors are working professionals who bring on-the-job experience to the classroom. But we don't just let anyone teach a course. How many experts do you know who can't teach? We've learned to audition and test our instructors. Only after they have been through our screening process will they be put in front of students. And they are required to use our time-tested curriculum, assuring a positive learning experience for all our students. Read our instructor bios.


Money-Back Guarantee

We’re the only school to offer an unconditional money-back guarantee. If you don’t absolutely LOVE your class during the first 60% of the class, we’ll give you a full refund! Compare that to other schools that have a no-refund policy.


We Are NY State-Licensed, and Adobe Authorized

When looking at a computer training school, check to see if they are NY State-licensed. Any school in New York should be licensed by law. Noble Desktop follows state-issued guidelines for curriculum development and teacher licensing. Adobe Authorized means our instructors have passed the rigorous Adobe Certification Exam, and that we follow Adobe's quality-control standards.


Our Students Love Us! 1800+ Testimonials and Counting

We offer our guarantee because we think we’re the best—but don’t take our word for it. Ask more than 1800 industry professionals who have enjoyed our classes and are putting what they learned to use on the job. Read their testimonials.
