  • “The Noble Desktop Web Design and Web Development Certificate Program
    was the best way to learn the skills needed to feel confident in the new career,
    build a modern portfolio and find clients for freelance work without spending
    more years and money on a new college degree.”

Why Train at Noble?

27 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 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 & 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.)

Money-Back Guarantee

We’re the only school to offer an unconditional money-back guarantee. If within the first half of the class you don’t absolutely love it, we’ll give you a full refund. Please note any request needs to be made before the halfway point of any class.

We Are NY State-Licensed & 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.

Students Love Us! 2200+ Testimonials & Counting

We offer our guarantee because we think we’re the best—but don’t take our word for it. Ask more than 2200 industry professionals who have enjoyed our classes and are putting what they learned to use on the job. Read their testimonials.
