  • “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!”

    Kathy Hallock

  • “Reading all the positive testimonials you think to yourself, ‘No class or instructor can be THAT good, right?’ Wrong. The instructors at Noble are the most knowledgeable, experienced, patient and skilled teachers you will find anywhere and the learning methods and training materials they employ will have you designing, coding and creating in no time.”

    Darrel Somoza

  • “Outstanding. Highly recommend the course and Noble Desktop overall. Instructors are the best, exercises and manuals prove helpful long after the class has ended. The only place I would consider to take a course. Continues to help me grow in my design career.”

    Peter Carey

  • “The instructors are top notch; very approachable and they know their stuff. Their class format is see and do; they explain an exercise step by step then have you complete it and are there to help you if you get stuck. I found the hands-on approach very effective. The exercises are modular and build on previous ones and every time you complete one you've made something happen that you didn't know how to do 30 minutes ago. That's a great feeling and helps keep you engaged in what you're learning. Piece by piece you're building practical skills that you can apply immediately.”

    Jonathon Powell

  • “I have completed 2 certificate programs. A 90-hour front-end web design certificate that included classes in HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript and jQuery, HTML email, Photoshop for web, and mobile and responsive web design. The second certificate built onto the first, and added a 30-hour back-end web development program which included PHP, MySQL, and WordPress.

    I learned tons, and the teachers were excellent. The course books are such a valuable tool to use with my projects. I was able to code a WordPress theme from scratch, and was even asked to speak at this past summer’s Wordcamp NYC. The instructors know their stuff, and really make learning fun. Nothing is rushed, and they take time to answer all questions. These courses were a very worthwhile investment—would recommend to anyone.”

    Gail Kearney

  • “As a long-time refugee of print design, I took the plunge and invested in my career by taking the Web Design 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.”

    Dylan Rogers

  • “The teaching method at Noble Desktop is perfect and the classes provide you with infinite knowledge that makes you eager to take all of the classes they offer. The quality of the instructors and exercises is unmatchable and of the highest quality. I love Noble!”

    Ivonne Ackerman

  • “I think this class was the perfect amount of content & taught in such as way that it was easy to understand, especially for those like me who are designers & not used to code. It was very easy to understand and follow and I felt excited at the end of each day about FINALLY understanding how HTML & CSS work together to create a site, and how simple it can be once you understand the basics behind code.”
