From our hands-on training style to world-class instructors and custom-crafted curriculum, we deliver results our alumni are proud of.
I was really impressed by the instructors’ knowledge of the subject matter, I thought the teaching method was very effective (instructor demonstrates the lesson while students watch, then students do the same lesson), and the exercises were interesting and well-designed. I started working on designing and developing a website for a personal project, so I took a number of web design courses at Noble. Since I was going to so many of them, I decided to get the Web Design and Web Development certificates. Every roadblock along the way I was able to overcome with the assistance of the Noble instructors (and there were quite a few roadblocks). During the time I was in the Web Design and Web Development certificate program, I attended the meetup at Noble where the design and development extraordinaire Dan Rodney would give feedback and assistance to students working on their own projects. I want to give a special shout-out to Dan for giving me so much good feedback and assistance, and to this day I’m still happy with the way BOAST: Best of Astoria (a WordPress site I built) looks. After I received the Web Design and Development certificates, I felt confident in developing websites, and I successfully did that for a number of clients. I really like learning and improving as a designer, so I was not done at Noble after the Web Design and Development certificates. I took Sketch in a Day, and that was directly useful in being hired at IBM as they asked if I had experience with Sketch. I was also quite interested in motion and animation, so I completed the Web Animation certificate. I’m glad I took those courses since I have been working on animation projects at work, and I feel comfortable using those programs thanks to Noble. As a production designer in the marketing department at IBM, sometimes I have to be able to work very quickly and produce assets in the best way possible. Because I attended a number of seminars and classes at Noble, I learned many best practices for design and development and became confident in using many of the graphics programs. Now across the many projects I work on at IBM, which range from print, to environmental, to presentation, to digital, to social, I have the belief that I can handle anything that comes my way, and much of that confidence stems from the seminars and courses I took at Noble. I had a great experience at Noble and am happy I received the Web Design and Web Development, and Web Animation certificates. I look forward to going back to continue learning.

I spent a lot of time researching different schools and couldn’t be more happy that I went to Noble Desktop for the Web Design Certificate. The instructors are great, you cover a lot of material and best of all - you get to keep the workbook so you can repeat exercises on your own!
James was able to take an old print-hound designer who was terrified of web design and slowly and patiently coax her to the dark side! Thank you, for now I see the light!

David was great. The class was great. I'm no longer so intimidated by the deeper levels of the web design process.
A great way to break into web design. No question too small. The teacher, the exercises and the work book are seamlessly designed to cover the most ground. A great class for a great price!
Noble Desktop took my fear out of web design, taught me what I needed to know, and launched me into a new aspect of my career.
This class typified the excellent standard of teaching and materials that I encountered through all the disciplines covered in the Web Design program. I unreservedly recommend Noble Desktop!

As a long-time refugee of print design, I took the plunge and invested in my career by taking the web certificate. I feel like it really paid off. I felt empowered and possessed the tools to design and build modern, responsive web sites. The aspect I most appreciated was learning up-to-date best practices for executing modern web designs. Noble’s original step-by-step books are second to none: easy-to-follow and handy references to fall back on while working on a project. The instructors bring their own valuable real-world experience and are eager to help and share their knowledge.
I had always wanted to learn web design but wasn't sure where to start. Noble Desktop gave me the push necessary to get a firm grasp on the basics and built the necessary foundation for me to start exploring new possibilities on my own. The skills learned will most definitely help me grow both professionally and creatively.

Dan was honest with his feedback and gave great critique of our work. He was encouraging and was great at steering us in the right direction. He never finished a class without encouraging us to email him throughout the weeks with questions or concerns. He was there for us and seemed genuinely excited to see what we had next for him.
My new career provides the flexibility to work remotely, on my own schedule, and this allows me to spend additional time with the people that matter most. I completed Noble Desktop’s Web Development certificate program. I wanted to change careers and build smart websites for small businesses and organizations. Before enrolling with Noble Desktop, I tried learning to code HTML and CSS on my own. I frequently found myself feeling “stuck” with unanswered questions. More concerning was that I “didn’t know what I didn’t know” about current web technologies and best practices. Noble Desktop’s instructors answered my questions and introduced web development concepts and resources I would need to produce excellent work. The information presented in class was a valuable mix of Noble Desktop textbook content and tips & tools instructors discovered in their web development careers. The textbooks are so good that when I’m not sure about something I am coding, I trust my Noble Desktop textbooks more than most online search results. The Noble Desktop Web Development certificate helped me land a marketing agency internship. The first job of my new career was coding HTML emails for a national law firm. Since then, I’ve joined the rapidly growing marketing automation field and the sky appears to be the limit. I am working on Keurig Dr Pepper’s Internet of Things connected coffee maker program, building automated customer journeys that deliver, email, inbox & push messages to Keurig’s mobile app. Thank you Noble Desktop!

They are seasoned pros who walk the walk and talk the talk. The knowledge and skill that I gained at Noble Desktop have enhanced my career in many ways. After taking the web design certificate program, I went from knowing very little about web design to knowing enough to design and code my own site!
Multidisciplinary Artist & Graphic Designer
This certificate program is for anyone who wants to design and code websites/emails, as well as develop a website portfolio of their work. It’s a good fit for:
In addition to 162 hours of interactive training, you will receive eight 1-on-1 mentoring sessions that can be used for career and job support, including polishing your resume, preparing for interviews, and reviewing best practices for applying to jobs. Note, however, that we don’t provide job placement (i.e. reaching out to companies on your behalf).
Yes, you will be expected to complete 5–10 hours of work outside of class. You’ll be practicing the skills learned in class, coding your own website(s), and developing a portfolio of work.
Noble’s typical class ranges from 8–12 students, but we accept up to 20 students.
We have scheduled the certificate classes in various tracks (day, night, or weekend) for your convenience, but you can customize your schedule.
When creating a custom schedule, you’ll be able to choose between the various available dates for each class in the certificate program. So if you can’t make a particular class, you can choose a different scheduled instance that works better for you.

We focus on teaching professional skills that people can use right away in real-world jobs. To keep class prices low, we do not offer formal job placement services. However, in this Web & Visual Design Certificate, in two classes (Visual Design Bootcamp and Web Design Portfolio Development), you will work on portfolio designs and your portfolio website that you can show prospective employers or clients. The Web Design Portfolio Development class also discusses tips and best practices for generating client work and positioning yourself for employment.
We don’t know of any schools that offer job placement at this price point. Programs with job placement are much more expensive. If you're considering one, be sure to read all their fine print to see what you will be required to do and if there are ways they can exclude you (such as missing a class or not fulfilling one of their other requirements).
Not having to worry about job placement statistics frees us to accept all students. Anyone who wants to learn at Noble, can. Some of our students want to learn a topic well enough to get a job in the industry (full time or freelance), others are already working in the industry or a related industry and want to add skills, others want to be able to communicate better with people in the industry. No matter what your goals are, you are welcome at Noble Desktop.
Even though we don’t offer formal job placement, we aim to give students practical and valuable skills they can apply to real-world jobs. We teach a lot in a short amount of time, to prepare students as best we can with skills applicable to full-time or freelance work. We want you to succeed!
