“I had a pretty basic understanding of CSS before this class. The concepts themselves weren't completely foreign to me, however I now feel like have a better understanding of how things really work. Rather than just copying and pasting code and hoping it does what I want it to, I now know why things work which will help me style more effectively and efficiently.”

“Noble is a school that is exactly what its name says. It cares about customer success. Its instructors have real world experience and are experts in their field. They teach because they enjoy it and they care that you actually learn. Forget the other "bootcamps” that feed you info from a firehose and you walk out with your head spinning. If you really want to learn, come to Noble Desktop.”

“I have taken almost the entire course catalogue offered by Noble Desktop. The teaching method is perfect for the material. The instructors keep their knowledge cutting edge and each have a respectful resume chock full of experience. If I had to pick one thing to say about Noble Desktop it would be that the quality of instruction, choice of topics and teaching methods are extremely consistent; there wasn't one day of one class that I felt let down. That's amazing.”

“Take web development from Noble if you actually want to learn and to feel like you are learning. I took a part time front-end web dev course at a big name competitor first. The competitor's course left me feeling lost and overwhelmed because there were no notes or book. Noble gives you top-notch notes and has spent significant time setting up the exercises so you never get lost. The instructor actually knows how to teach and likes it and wasn't speeding through the material so he could leave early to go to his bunk bed start-up life, as in the class I took from the competition. Further - they have a massive screen so you can see what the instructor is doing rather than squinting and getting lost as I did in the competitor’s class. On top of all that, I feel extremely satisfied that I got my money's worth because I can practice the lessons again because there is a book. AND if I want to see a lesson again, I'm allowed to come back and watch again. I don't think I'll need to repeat anything BUT I am super happy that is an option. These guys run a good ,fair business. They treat you well and you actually learn. Forget the rest, Noble will make you successful.”

“This was a wonderful class and having a live instructor made a huge difference in the class experience. Our instructor, Kalika, was amazing and set the lessons up so that we gradually built towards the final lesson making incredible progress along the way. She also allowed us all to work at our own pace during the lessons so that everyone was able to develop at a pace comfortable to them while still seeing a marked improvement. I highly recommend this class and eagerly look forward to the next.”

“Throughout the year, I had the opportunity to design and code emails. Trying to code emails which would display correctly on many different email clients and screens sizes I found perplexing and tedious. Coding for them is bit of a dark science. Not fully understanding led me to take this class. The knowledge learned by taking this course going forward will enable me to better code them, in addition to being taught best practices as well as valuable tips and tricks. They no longer are a mystery. I can’t thank the course instructor, Victoria, enough. She’s truly "all knowing email goddess."”

“The class was a great introduction to HTML and CSS! I had a little background knowledge going in, but I definitely feel like I have a better understanding of WHY you do certain things and the logic behind the code. It was beginner-friendly and taught practical skills that I can already use. After going home on the last day, I was able to update the navigation on my company's website and add a new page that fit the rest of the website's styling. I could even make it mobile compatible! If I'd tried this a week ago, I probably would've crashed the whole site.”

“My instructor was the best! I appreciate that she stayed on topic and lead the class. We were focused on the subject and moved on together while still being able to go at our own pace. She answered all our questions with enthusiasm and taught us as beginners using terms at a speed we could grasp the concept at. I also appreciate that she used the screen to zoom in and then back to make sure we saw where the palettes where and what they were doing. It can be overwhelming to look at a screen with a million palettes and listen to someone talk at the same time. Our teacher handled it very well.”

“Kalika was an excellent instructor. Her enthusiasm and passion for After Effects was contagious. She was patient, smart, and funny. She brought a much needed lightness and humor to a difficult subject. At times I was overwhelmed. Kalika was hands-on with helping me. She was genuinely interested in teaching us what we wanted to know. We followed the instruction booklet but it was not forced upon us -- we went at our own pace and was able to spend the last class practicing our own project ideas. I left my three-day Noble Desk top experience feeling inspired and excited to continue my After Effects learning journey. I intend on using my new knowledge to make personal art as well as enhance my day-job work as a graphic designer in higher education. I cannot speak highly enough of Kalika. She was truly a pleasure.”

“I've taken 4 or 5 classes at Noble Desktop, and all have been great! I've recommended them to friends and coworkers, and will continue to do so. I like that the classes are easily digestible, while still covering a lot of material. They also do a good job of explaining the fundamentals, so you understand what you are doing and why. I feel a lot of courses give a list of instructions on how to do different things within a program, but without understanding fundamentally why you're doing each step, it is hard to apply those concepts to future projects outside the classroom.”

“I'd approached this class with an open mind because while I'm a "Photoshop veteran" I hadn't used it for website wire framing. Simply put the Photoshop for Web Design & UI course material is directly in line with the subject. There was much that I learned that I wished I had known about before for my own projects. I found the course's "real world" scenarios/examples to be very educational. The course's instructor Ethan was masterful.”

Darryl Kaalund

“Reading all the positive testimonials you think to yourself, "No class or instructor can be THAT good, right?" Wrong.

Cathline was better as a teacher than any "high level" professor I had at Parsons where I completed my MFA. She explained concepts extremely well, was nurturing, always available for assistance, answered every question fully, and was genuinely concerned for her student's welfare. This was really touching. I will never forget the experience I had in her Visual Design for Web and Mobile class. It was unforgettable and very very beneficial for someone who was shaky about their graphic designs.

“The instructor was very informative. From the beginning of the course, she fielded each of the students needs and their purpose for taking the class. I didn't take the Dreamweaver class so that I could become a web programmer. My goal was to understand the process, be able to build a basic site and have the vernacular to speak to client/producer/coder/designer in order to design direct a web page or user interface. My goal was heard and achieved. Thank you Noble.”

“I've taken several Noble classes, and they are the best! Michele was a great Photoshop CS6 instructor, encouraging questions and going into the answers until everyone understood them. The pace was right, we had plenty of time to do the exercises, and Michele was right there to help anyone who was "stuck." Noble Desktop, you are wonderful! Thanks again for a great experience.”

“After twenty years of making my way piecemeal through Photoshop, this class gave me a comprehensive overview of the software. I learned of many features that are new to me, and streamlined and improved processes that I already knew about. Wish I had taken this course years ago, and am looking forward to taking Advanced Photoshop next!”

Andrew Stevens

“I already miss being in class– had such a nice time; and the teacher (Michele Rosenthal) was really nice, patient, articulate and had a good understanding of what was happening with the tools; she was able to say where we went wrong or why something else happened during the exercise. It is an excellent class with a really good curricula; Photoshop wasn't a software that I used, heard of yes, but not used– until I started to work on this project at work– so am a novice no more.”

Michele's teaching style helped me to focus and absorb a maximum of information with no distractions. She even optimized the learning environment by being consistent in dimming the lights for demonstrations, and raising them when we were doing workbook exercises. Michelle was also consistent in alerting us of what information was in the workbook and what wasn't. Overall, she made it so easy to learn a difficult program.

“Noble Desktop ROCKS. I have been attending classes and free seminars there for 6 years and they have all been super beneficial. And there is a reason why their workbooks are for sale on Amazon.com. They are really, really well written and cover the subject matter brilliantly. All of the instructors I have taken classes with were wonderful and experts on their subject. I thought at first that the free seminars were just devices to trick people into paying for classes at Noble, but having taken the free seminars, I don't think that is true. The atmosphere at Noble is great. The people are fabulous. And, also, there's a very good reason why Noble built such a spectacular business on word of mouth alone. Noble Desktop ROCKS!!”

She was able to break the material down in English so that we could understand the concepts.

“I had to learn Dreamweaver in a 'trial by fire' method for a graduate digital design course... I learned enough to get by - but taking the class at Noble, it allowed me the opportunity to really understand how Dreamweaver works, how to code with HTML and the advantages of CSS. At the conclusion of the first class I signed up for the next level.. and I'm now very interested in pursuing the Certificate in Web Design. Digital design is the future of graphic design and I'd like to be prepared.”

“I was definitely concerned about whether I'd be able to keep up with a three-day introductory course in Dreamweaver (especially because I wasn't even sure what Dreamweaver did, and had never heard of CSS before), but after my very positive experience with your InDesign course, I had a general level of trust in Noble. My instructor for Dreamweaver Level I (Victoria) was excellent, and worked magic in three days. She gave me a great foundation on which to build, and has such an enthusiasm for the subject that I now aspire to becoming a CSS guru... now that I know what it is.”

The course material was sensibly and professionally well thought out and very efficiently put together. The instructor Victoria Torres is amazing. Victoria is extremely knowledgable and very professionally polished, yet she can be quite humorous and certainly had the class in stitches at times. I feel now that I have a better understanding the basic concept of Dreamweaver's structure as it relates to how it can be used to build and manage websites. A great class! Thank you very much, Noble Desktop.”

The teacher had a fantastic command of the material, and was good at keeping us on task and moving us through the material. In the past I have gotten "lost" in other classes, having to catch up, with missed information. This did not happen, because he was constantly telling us where to look, what page we were on, and had a keen sense of what issues were going to be problematic. So he addressed them, spot on. He was funny, too!”

The workbook lessons were comprehensive and an excellent "path of education" but the ability to immediately ask and get answers lifted this to extreme value.”

Susan Zwiener

“Before taking the course at Noble I knew nothing about Dreamweaver. It was an intensive course with a lot of material to learn and absorb in 3 days but the class structure and comprehensive instruction put everything into perspective for me. Progressive guided lessons with corresponding independent exercises provided clear understanding of the many facets involved in building an active web site, from start to finish. The instructor, an extremely knowledgeable working professional in the field, presented new material with concise explanations, eagerly addressed questions, and conscientiously circulated the room offering assistance during independent activities. After taking the course I had a solid foundation and working knowledge of Dreamweaver. Practice makes perfect and Noble provides for that by issuing a training manual with class files CD so you can practice at home. Don’t have the program? With your class receipt Noble also can hook you up with a discounted student version. Didn’t quite get the gist of a particular step or lesson? Noble will find room for you to sit in during the next available class so you can get it straightened out. Unlike many higher learning or vocational institutions that herd students in and out of their facilities, Noble Desktop is a small professional organization that puts its reputation on the line with each student seeking computer graphics training with them. I’m certain you will be more than satisfied with instruction, instructors, and administration at Noble... I definitely am and have registered for two more courses!”

“Overall, I'm always amazed at the talent of your instructors and comprehensiveness of your course materials. I thoroughly enjoy the theory/academic material, but mostly I'm impressed by your emphasis on translating these tools to real-world, practical applications. I took a PHP class with a different company, and only then did I realize exactly how well your courses are put together. They covered all the theory, but when it came to going back to the workplace to apply those skills, I realized they hardly covered any real-world applications of it. I basically had to re-teach myself all the information when it came to applying it to actual real-world applications. This is why your company will always be my first choice when looking for continuing education classes.”

The class was taught in such a clear and logical manner while moving at a speed that was neither too slow for the fast learners nor too intense for the beginners...it was truly an enjoyable experience.”

“I had fully completed web, HTML, and Dreamweaver CS5 courses online from one of the most notable online course sources -- I still didnt have a handle on HTML and Dreamweaver. To make a point: I've mastered QX [since 1989] and IND since its inception; so I would say I'm 'mentally receptive' to learning new stuff. it just didnt happen with the web related stuff -- BUT after doing Dreamweaver at NOBLE, after the first day I was totally embracing HTML -- and after the 3 day course, I was up and running with DW. Great class! Clear instruction for the designers and artists among us!”

“I've never seen any instructor so eager to channel his knowledge and expertise in layman's terms with genuine, child-like enthusiasm. I liked the way he took time to help and explain things, not rushing through just so he could get to the next person with a question. He has a keen sense to read our puzzled look when the first answer didn't hit home, by triggering our mind to think another way for the light bulb to lit. I rarely dare to retouch a photo -- no matter how bad it was. After this class, I feel comfortable in tackling poor images and making them look better.”

“Early this year I got an email from one of my headhunters, who basically said: "... the print jobs that have been eliminated are probably NOT coming back." We were told that we needed to update our skills to include web design. So I begrudgingly took the advice and signed up for Dreamweaver and Flash at Noble Desktop. Their 3-day intensive courses were just what I needed! I didn't have the time to waste taking a semester-long class with a teacher and/or curriculum that may or may not have been any good. At Noble Desktop, the teachers are screened and they are top-rate... and they actually LOVE teaching! Noble Desktop's method of teaching the computer programs uses real-world scenarios — there is no time wasted on stuff you don't need, nor on rhetoric or theory that is useless. The material is relevant and current, and they teach it in a way that is logical, and easy to grasp. They test their lessons over and over and constantly update the classes and workbooks. After taking these 2 classes, I feel that now I can send out my resume with my new web skills added, with confidence! Yes, their classes seem expensive, but no more than any other art school here in New York City, and you get the skills you need in just 3 days! So — since your time is money, you come out way ahead of the game! Thank you Noble Desktop. You are one of the absolute BEST schools in the country.”

“I'm primarily a photographer and graphic designer and have recently added moving images (video) to my repertoire. I needed to learn Final Cut Pro but was a bit intimidated by it. The FCP class at Noble Desktop was really user-friendly, and totally eliminated my fears of the program. After just 3 days I feel that I have enough knowledge of the program that I can get out there and shoot, edit, and make DVDs and (music) videos for the web!!! Thank you Noble Desktop. You are a top-rate school, and your teachers are the best! I attended many semester-long classes at other art and design schools, the majority were taught by third-rate teachers and the classes were boring and just dragged on and on. YOUR classes were right on the money. You showed us the nuts-and-bolts of the program in an easy-to-grasp manner. Your intensive classes are perfect for the working professional who doesn't have time to attend a semester-long class. I did not have to go through a lot of red-tape to register for the class, either. The sign-up process was quick and easy. Someone answered the phone every time I called and responded to my questions in a positive and professional manner. And I even got a signed "certificate" to show that I took the class! How cool is that!”

This is the first time I've taken a computer class and immediately felt confident in what I've learned. The teachers are PROS! They really know their stuff. I learned more in my Flash class at Noble Desktop than I learned at a very expensive private college I attended.”

“I was determined to learn Flash on my own. I didn't want to spend the money or use my vacation time to come to Noble. I tried using sites like lynda.com and follow along, but I would miss little details and the whole exercise would fall apart. I am sooo glad that I decided take the Flash class. It was well worth the investment. I highly recommend anyone who needs to expand their skill set to enroll.”

“For anyone into photography who fiddles around (incorrectly!) in Photoshop, this class is a must. I learned lots of time-saving tricks and cool processes that instantly revolutionized the way I edit photos -- and use Photoshop in general. If I had only learned one of these things, this class would've been worth it -- but I learned so many! The instructor solidly knew her material, presented it well, was patient and friendly with the students, always asked if there were questions, answered every question -- and researched those she didn't know during breaks and got back to the class with the answer. The course workbook is clear, comprehensive, and well laid-out. The text used is in a conversational tone, capturing the nuances of a one-on-one in-person training even when you're done with the class. The course itself is designed to begin each segment with a detailed demonstration by the instructor, followed by the student doing a hands-on exercise at the computer (provided by the company) to practice what they just learned. Further demos/exercises build upon the earlier exercises so you can get a better handle on them. I couldn't wait to get home to launch Photoshop and get to work on my own stuff! Thank you, Noble Desktop!”

It was beneficial to know that I am on the right track with some techniques and valuable to learn aspects of the program that I have not used correctly or to the fullest extent. The instructor and instruction was clear and easy to follow without being condescending. The techniques I learned will allow me to be more organized, efficient and skillful in my use of FCP. My class at Noble was time will spent.”

Sarah Bush

“I knew that CSS was just what I needed to learn but was not sure that I was able to take it on personally, well...Dan was right, I really found it to be just the right approach and challenge. The Advanced Dreamweaver Class opened up new doors to better design techniques for web and most importantly my mindset is looking at the web in CSS vision. Whoa! Think CSS, build with CSS, integrate CSS in the beginning and help the future of your web site. Perhaps CSS is the "greening" of the world wide web? Go Dan!”

“I am a web instructor myself and teach Dreamweaver, Photoshop and more (although to much lower literacy students). I have also taken classes at NYU, The New School/Parsons and Pratt and hands down Dan is the best instructor I have ever had (including myself!). And for an audience who can read at a high school level, the handouts and CD of example files of the exercises covered in class, are the best I have ever seen. If you want a class without much theory, that is 100% practical and that will make you feel empowered and excited about using the software being taught, Noble Desktop is the best school!”

Dawn Reel

Ethan is a great teacher and really knows his stuff. The class covered all the basics and the hands on exercises were perfect in reinforcing what our instructor was showing in class. Ethan took the time to go over specific things not included in the syllabus but the class had an interest in. I would definitely recommend this class...I am kicking myself for not taking the class earlier and making life easy. ”

“I am so happy I finally took a web class at Noble Desktop. I've put off learning web design programs for 4 years and just getting by with the little knowledge of hand-coding and HTML that I knew. However, now with Dreamweaver CS3 there has been no better time to catch up with the web world and quickly and effectively make my own websites and start creating them for others on a larger scale, professionally. Noble made the learning so easy by optimizing their computer set-up paying attention to every detail to make the best learning environment. The Dreamweaver class was clever, pace was good, fast computers and all the latest software. Hands-on training is the best method for learning. Good job, Noble.”

Instead, I feel like I walked away with a very good understanding of the how the program works and how to use it effectively. I also thought that I would be bored to tears by 3 days of computer classes (usually not my cup of tea), but the lesson structure was extremely well set up and the instructor Ethan made it fun and engaging and time really flew by!

She knew Photoshop inside and out; knew the feature differences between CS, CS2, and CS3. I don’t believe anything was asked in class that she was not able to answer. She paced the class well (DIDN'T rush through the exercises so that we (she) could get out early) and provided good info and examples that were above and beyond what was in the training material; good information about color correction and file types, etc. I would absolutely take another class of hers.”

“This is the second time that I have been to a Noble Desktop class and I can't wait to come back for yet another class. I was sent by my job (Prudential) and my whole department raved about Noble before I came - and now I see why. I feel the instructors' approach is very practical and they left me with a strong foundation on which I can expand and learn more. I believe Noble is so successful because of their real commitment to education and helping people understand and apply what they learn. I was really impressed when I was leaving my Photoshop class on the last day and the instructor was giving away his phone number to a student who needed more help developing his personal/business website - it seems that you come to Noble to just "take a class" but you leave with friends that are willing and committed to help you long-term.”

“I approach software classes as paying somebody to read the directions to me out loud, since I don't have the patience to read the book myself. I also want someone who has already figured out which parts of the software program I need and skips the rest. Noble Desktop is perfect for this. I have taken two classes -- 10 years apart -- and both delivered the goods. The curriculum was comprehensive, well-organized, precisely targeted to its stated audience and professionally delivered. The handbook was a bonus. It is well-designed, including the examples (no small issue to a graphic designer), well-written (no small issue to a literate graphic designer) and carefully typeset (no small issue now that we're all typesetters, too!). Yes, I did read that book!”

“As a self-taught html/css/PHP/MySql coder and college-instructed Photoshop/Illustrator guru, Flash was always something that eluded my ability to master, not for lack of trying. I left the class with a firm grip on the program that I hadnt been able to achieve on my own simply through books and online resources. The fact that I achieved such confidence in only three days is nothing short of astounding.”

“The InDesign class taught at Noble Desktop was very thorough, a lot more interesting than I had imagined and the instructor was very clear and patient. The classroom space was very comfortable, spacious, with state of the art equipment. The instruction manual handed out to all the students with the disk is excellent! I would be interested in taking more courses with Noble Desktop.”

Caitlin Rosen

“I just completed the HTML/Dreamweaver class with Carl (who I also had for Flash). He is an EXCELLENT teacher and very professional! You may walk into this class to upgrade your skills or learn the software from scratch. Either way, you leave knowing a great deal more than you could have imagined. When Carl handed out our certificates of completion the class in turn gave him a round of applause. That said, I highly recommend Noble Desktop. My learning experience overall exceeded my expectations.”

“I loved this class. Josh had a wonderful 'dead pan' way of delivering the most exquisite information. He'd go through the steps, with a deliberate speed, easy to follow, and then say, "Just like that" at the end, as if it was no big deal. Now I keep saying, to myself, 'Just like that,' as I finish doing something.”

“Noble Desktop is the class experience I've been looking for. Serious yet comfortable. Extremely on top of things. This is the best place around for keeping current.

“I would definitely recommend the Quark to InDesign class. It helps you open your mind to a new way of working. The InDesign program does indeed have advantages over Quark...it's just not another way to do it - it does it better. Seth was my teacher, and he took the fear of learning a whole new program totally away.”

Dianne Rella

This could easily be a recipe for disaster. Instead, Victoria took the material and walked us through it like only a really great teacher can. Even thought there were probably 20 people in the class, she provided individual attention and was truly motivating. I would definitely take a course at Noble again and I would recommend Noble--and especially Victoria--to anyone.”

“The Quark to InDesign class was just amazing -- Dan is a very talented teacher: quick, enthusiastic, friendly... Covered all the basics and more (including the style sheets, master pages, complex find/replaces). This is the perfect class for the seasoned Quark user who fears InDesign... I was converted by lunchtime the first day. Dan knows Quark inside-out and backwards, and was able compare and contrast the logic of the two programs -- a total expert who speaks plainly and succinctly. I'm so impressed, I really want to take more courses at Noble Desktop now.”

“I like Noble's format. The demonstrations let you see what you can do, and the exercises that follow each one let you do it, while it's fresh in your mind. You can get your questions answered right then, rather than when you get home and actually start doing design. The instructors are great too, and the pace is just right.”

“It's been a long time since I've had to sit in a class and stay focused for that long, and I had forgotten that I'm not great at it. But Scott made it surprisingly easy and fun. He was great at showing the ways that Indesign was going to be useful to all designers and production managers; and more importantly, he took the time during the class to learn the kind of work that we would normally be doing, then pointed out how we could personally benefit from what we were learning.”

“The instructor for the course was excellent. She was a professional who obviously has worked on websites for many years, and has a variety of clients who like her work. She was also had an ability to understand the problems faced by newbies and to explain exactly what she means. This is an unusual quality for a techie. Her speech and enunciation were clear and her spoken sentences grammatical. She was also exceedingly polite and respectful to every student. These qualities are not what one would ordinarily expect in a trade school. I had previously taken an HTML course at NYU night school, and the Noble instructor was far superior to the NYU instructor. The equipment for use in the class was state-of-the-art and well-maintained. There were none of the usual glitches one finds when using equipment at a school. There were no restrictions on the use of the equipment--if you wanted to check your e-mail, you were free to do so. The teaching method is uniquely Noble's--during the lecture, you listen and do not follow along (although you may follow along on computer if you choose to do so). After each lecture (about 1/2 hour to one hour per lecture), you do exercises from the workbook, under the guidance of the instructor. The method is quite satisfying, and works very well.”

Helen Feinstein

“This is the FIRST course I have ever taken when I didn't feel "left behind" when TRYING TO FOLLOW on my computer what the instructor had just covered in front of the students and on screen. Make a mistake or error and try to correct yourself, suddenly the instructor is on to the NEXT area, and then the NEXT, and I'm still in "catch-up mode". This way of instruction does not work for me, and it's a very unsatisfactory learning experience! YOUR TEACHING METHOD is great, and it worked for ME! Sit there, listen to, and watch the instructor go over the next area step-by-step. THEN, with the Training Manual in hand, work on the same exercise AT YOUR OWN PACE and do it correctly. Make a mistake or error, correct yourself OR ask for help, and NOT WORRY you're missing the instructor's NEXT step.”

Guy Stamski

“The teaching method at Noble Desktop is excellent. It allows the student to concentrate on what the teacher is teaching, then the student tackles the same exercise following the detailed workbook. It is the best approach to learning new programs.”

“The instructor was articulate and patient. They way the class is taught, with the exercise first being explained by the instructor, then having the students do the same exercise is smart. The step by step instruction booklet given to students is well written. All in all an excellent experience. If this is the standard of all of the Noble Desktop courses I would recommend them to anyone interested in desktop design and publishing.”

After the first class I felt that I had a much stronger understanding of terms I had been using for years (and somewhat incorrectly at times) and left the class with a understanding of how so many things are done in photoshop. I felt like the class exercises were the exact right amount of practice for every new skill learned and the 3 week classes of three hours a night twice a week was just the right amount of time to power through and not feel like I had given up my life. I thought the entire experience was fantastic, the instructor was awesome and easy to understand and I have so much knowledge that I didn't have last month. If you want a shortcut into learning a program this is really the best experience I could recommend.”

I just finished with four years of college, and the skill with which the course was taught really made my college look bad. Here the instructors were incredibly knowledgeable about the source material. In fact, the instructors were funny and full of humor about a subject that doesn't have a lot of it. They kept the class fun without taking the focus off the source material and putting it on themselves. They did a nice job of giving you just enough instruction to help you along, and knew enough to leave you alone when you had to learn on your own. Really, amazingly well done. I was very impressed.”

“I've been to many seminars for various computer programs. By far, this was the best experience - the method of first showing the exercise, along with comprehensive explanations, then having the class perform the exercise works really well. The training manual will be invaluable when I go to do this on my own. I came away feeling like I could actually go back to my office and do what I'd been taught.”

The teaching method itself was perfect for this type of material: a demonstration and explanation of a key section by the instructor followed by individual exercises using an excellent, supplied manual. This allowed us to progress at our own pace and truly learn. I recommend the course without reservation.”

My Dreamweaver experience was enjoyable AND productive. I am also thankful that students have a choice of platform. That was a BIG deciding factor for me in choosing Noble-- to be able to learn on a Mac. Thank you. After all this info sinks in we will meet again as I look forward to the Advanced Dreamweaver class and learning Flash. P.S. Getting a student price break on applications is super cool.”

“I thought the class was fantastic. The instructor was very knowledgable--you could tell he was familiar with all aspects of the program. I have taken seminars before where the instuctor was only familiar with doing certain kinds of designs. Dan really knew his stuff and could answer questions from setting up files to prepress. The seminar was very fast moving and in depth but not confusing at all. The handbook was easy to follow and it was reassuring to know that if I did have any questions I could look over the handbook.”

On those rare occasions when a question's answer didn't readily come to him or he wasn't sure what the inquisitor was asking, he took the time to work through the problem. No one was left behind, and yet, there was never a sense that the class was getting bogged down and had to rush to finish the assignments.”

As an R.I.T. and Kodak Scholar I can honestly say that some of the explanations used to describe photo theories and practicalities in Photoshop are better than any I have read or been taught.

“I just finished taking the Illustrator and Photoshop classes, and I learned more about these programs in the 3-day intensive classes I did in two semesters of my highly respected design school. My instructor was patient with my questions, and was consistently clear and concise in the way he delivered the information. I left the courses feeling much more confident about my range of skills with these programs. I highly recommend these courses to complete beginners as well as to people who might already have a semi-working knowledge of the programs.”

It was comprehensive and thorough, and the material was presented in an effective, dynamic manner.

“I absolutely loved this class! Considering the fact that I had never even looked at InDesign before, I can't believe how much I was able to learn and absorb over the course of three days. The instructor was great--the pace was perfect and I never felt overwhelmed. I was absolutely astounded at how amazing this program is, and I was especially pleased with the fact that I was able to learn it so easily since I am a writer and not a designer. I was actually really sad when the class ended. If I could, I would take every single class that Noble Desktop offers.”

I am looking forward to going through the manual again on my own, and I really appreciated the time taken to explain some basic programmatic concepts involved in ActionScript. The teacher Victoria was incredibly lucid in her descriptions, quite patient and very receptive to all the students. Considering it was a three day intensive I felt I absorbed a great deal of material.”

“The InDesign course was one of the most comprehensive trainings I have taken. The combination of instructor-led training and hands-on practice for each session provided a positive learning environment where you immediately implemented what you learned and had the instructor there to walk you through any questions. One week after the training, I'm creating (and converting) nearly all my documents to InDesign with ease.”

“I came to the course with what I thought was a good understanding of Quark, having worked with the program for four years. I learned so many new shortcuts and features that will save me a lot of time and improve my layout skills. My only regret is that I didn't take this course sooner. Dan's teaching method is excellent, and the workbook is among the best I've ever seen -- easy to follow, with explanations for just about every step in every process. You don't just learn how to do something, but why you do it. I feel like I have a more complete understanding of the desktop publishing process from the creation of the pages to the final touches for the printer. Your Quark class was recommended by a colleague who had already taken it, and I've already recommended it to another. THANK YOU!”

“This class was possibly the best learning experience I’ve had in NY. I’ve been taking CE classes for 12 years at SVA, Pratt, and the New School, and this was the first class to include a bound book of step-by-steps for each exercise, which will be invaluable when I go back to practice. Victoria was a great teacher who kept me mesmerized even though I was functioning on way below my standard sleep requirements those 3 days. She was concise, clear, and endlessly patient, with a great sense of humor.”

Powerful computers, huge monitors, a mouse (that works!), latest version of software, PC or MAC preference, comfortable chairs, an exceptional instructor (Josh but I’m sure others are great too), hands-on training, a detailed practice exercise book and a CD, a free T-shirt - everything was there. Compared to other companies, Noble Desktop’s pricing is a joke. I was concerned about quality but I signed up because they also have their class projects on their website (and I completed all of them in class!). I’ll definitely recommend their classes to everyone - even to people who think they already know the stuff.”

“ From the first few minutes of class I learned things that were useful to my job. The instructor was very clear and thorough, but also kept the pace going. I’ve taken a few courses with Noble Desktop and have not been disappointed in any of the classes or instructors. The instruction keeps on getting better! p.s. The language in the books has also greatly improved. The books now give you insight into WHY you are using a certain tool and challenges you to apply the tools that were just taught. Much better then in the past where it was mostly following along. ”

Fortunately, I was put at ease right away. The course material was both challenging and well-organized, and the instructor was a real subject matter expert who was able to convey key concepts in practical, real-world terms. I highly recommend this course to others.”

“I live outside the USA and even with the cost of flights and hotel, this course will pay for itself in less than one year. Small classes made it easier to have one-on-one teaching as attendee’s tech ability spread from novice to people who had some knowledge and were looking for advancement.”

Roger Anderson

“I recommend this class for both the novice and someone like myself with a modicum of experience to bring it all together. ”

“This was my first time taking an Intensive course. The style that the course was taught (lecture with visual support, and then actively doing the exercises) was very conducive to my style of learning. Auditory, visual and active learning lends itself to retention.”

Terri Lee Tabasso

“I can highly recommend Noble to anyone who is looking to take a web or graphic design course. I had taken a couple of courses at a community college and was somewhat disappointed. Noble, on the other hand, was a great experience. The instructors I had were both very knowledgeable and most importantly, knew how to teach students effectively. There are a lot of schools out there that are just looking to make a buck, Noble Desktop actually cares about their students.”

“Victoria was remarkably lucid and thorough-- she’s an excellent teacher (who made her way through a sore throat quite bravely) and I can’t tell you how many “ah-ha” moments I had over the course of the 2 days. Dreamweaver makes a lot more sense now. The class was an unqualified success.”

Margot Spindelman

“I found the instructors are very thorough, clear and patient. The lessons were very well thought-out.”

Shayna Adee

Jun 18, 2003

“I found the course invaluable. It clarified topics I was uncertain about, plus I learned industry standard techniques. The drawback of being self taught is that over the years I have picked up the bad habits of others while scrounging around for information. It’s definitely better to just take the class. I learned at least 15 things to improve my efficiency and color correction skills. I really appreciated the information on hardware and software optimization, too.”

Stephanie Zdanowitz

“As co-owner and creative director of a small but busy design company, I have a continuing need to stay apprised of emerging technology and very little time to do so. I have been largely disappointed in the various new media courses I’ve taken in the past with “instructors” who seemed to teach by the seat of their pants -- only one or two textbook chapters ahead of the rest of the class. That was until I came to Noble. The instructor (in this case, Victoria Torres) demonstrated not only outstanding professionalism and depth of knowledge but a real and genuine sense of caring that we as students walked away with something of value in the end. A world of thanks to the crew and Noble Desktop. I’m sure I’ll see you again...SOON!”

Michele Rashbaum

Mar 26, 2003

“ My wife and I both took the HTML basic and Dreamweaver course, and later the JavaScript course. I took the Dreamweaver Advanced course, and also the ColdFusion course. Victoria was the instructor for the basic Dreamweaver course. Dan was the instructor for the advanced Dreamweaver course, as well as the JavaScript course. Shlomy, of course, was the ColdFusion instructor. I can honestly say that I thought all the instructors knew their stuff, and I thought they all did an excellent job of communicating. I enjoyed and benefited from the alternation between demonstration and hands-on learning, and just generally felt that the whole experience was a positive one from the standpoint of the instructors and the methodology. I liked that you had most of the tedious typing already done for most of the classes, at least where possible. At the same time, I liked that where appropriate, we had to get our hands dirty with the code too. I would return to Noble for any course I needed, and Noble would be my first choice for anything I want to learn. I would, and have, and will, recommend Noble to others in the strongest terms. The whole atmosphere and methodology is both enjoyable and conducive to learning. Perhaps the best praise I can offer is that I get the feeling that you and the instructors are genuinely interested in the students actually learning and actually getting something of value for the money they spend. In all cases, I have left your classrooms armed with notes and ideas that I have been able to take to my business and begin implementing right away. Your classes helped me to understand what is possible, where I have been falling short, and what I need to do to get the results I desire. They also helped inspire creativity and ideas that I believe will pay dividends down the road. Although my site hasn’t visibly changed a lot yet, over the weeks ahead it will change drastically and significantly for the better, as I begin rolling out some of the improvements that are either direct or indirect results of the time I spent with you guys. In a world where customer service is all but dead, it is refreshing to come across an organization that does it right...I will look forward to my next Noble experience. ”

“Even if you have experience with the program, the class opens you up to new ways of working. The exercises utilize many of the program’s features some I was familiar with and some not.

“My co-worker at Sports Illustrated took the Illustrator 10 course a few weeks prior and was extremely impressed with how his course was taught which prompted me to take Photoshop 7. I was a little nervous to take the course not knowing if it would start with the basics. My preexisting knowledge of the program was spotty and minimal, but it covered the absolute basic info. and progressively moved up. Our instructor, Josh was fantastic! He articulates his thoughts succinctly and clearly to explain the details of the processes. This helped a great deal. All in all, very, very satisfied.”

“Once again Noble exceeded my expectations. As a corporate trainer I am well aware of what talent and expertise are necessary to create an effective training program. Computer training is especially challenging as it is quite difficult to find someone that not only has the depth of knowledge, but also the skills needed to share that knowledge. Noble has found those people!”

The exercise book and CD are great because I know that if I forget how to do something, I can easily replicate the experience from class. The environment was nice and relaxing. I really got a tremendous amount from the three days I was there. I already know at least four immediate things I can do with what I learned as well as using Dreamweaver to redesign my web page.”

Jean Cook

Dec 1, 2002

“This was my second Noble class and I was impressed both times with the energy and knowledge of the instructors (Dan & Victoria). I came to this with absolutely no experience (okay, I did the HTML exercises on webmonkey, but didn’t get past headlines). After completing Victoria’s class last Friday I went home and built my own website over the weekend complete with all kinds of cool rollover effects and links. And it works!”

When presented with the responsibility of managing my firm’s design process in-house, I knew I needed to take a comprehensive software design course that would get me up to speed fast. Noble Desktop didn’t disappoint! Within one day of completing my training, I was preparing report covers, article reprint designs, and advertising layout. Thanks Noble Desktop!”

“ The HTML/Dreamweaver class is the best web design course I’ve taken. I’ve attended many graphic design courses at various NY colleges, including SVA, and this far surpassed them. It was extremely organized, the instructor (Victoria) was very knowledgeable and as a bonus, she was a great teacher! I loved the idea of “sitting back and watching” as the instructor taught us and then doing the lessons. I also appreciated how the Training Book was set up...it walked us through step by step in each assignment. Many lesson books build on what you’ve learned before and just assume that you remember those steps for later lessons, which can be very frustrating. It was just a great experience and I will definitely come back for more classes as my skills advance. Also, as a side note. I felt the environment was great. We weren’t squished together...I really felt like I had my own space to work and spread out. I was also impressed that all the computers actually worked and weren’t antiques (something you don’t find at art colleges when taking continuing ed. classes). ”

“ I had a really wonderful time during the Flash class and I really love Moneta - I think she’s a great instructor and had excellent pace in communicating all there is to learn in the course syllabus. The class materials themselves are extremely useful as well, a good balance between technical explanations and good exercises (animation tricks). I think the course handbook was written very well also and easy to follow. Towards the end of the course, I was a lot less intimidated by the software and felt extremely inspired to learn more about Flash. I am definitely interested in taking the Flash Advanced class and very looking forward to the next enrollment schedule. Thank you. ”

“Noble Desktop rocks! The Advanced Flash was clear, well-paced, and always highly practical. I learned things I never would have learned on my own -- including a few bugs in the program and ways to work around them.”

“I was afraid my minimal background in web design would leave me in dust for this class, but Noble Desktop has a great program with wonderful, knowledgeable instructors.”

Blair Schmidt

“The class exceeded my expectations. I was a beginner user of Dreamweaver and this really reinforced what I knew and introduced new things. I feel much more confident now to use this tool for web design. I would highly recommend this class. It had the perfect blend of teaching and hands on experience. I am looking forward to taking the advanced class and learning more.”

“I don’t know what to say. Is there anything that could be said when one is beyond satisfied? Okay, let me try... “Classes and instructors you wish you had in every course you ever took in college, and all the other training classes.” Seriously, I loved Victoria as our instructor and I will definitely seek Noble Desktop the next time I take a class for the web and its design. You’ve spoiled me (in a good way) by exposing me to your “way-above-par” standard of teaching and course curriculum.”

“Dreamweaver class was very detailed. The class gave you lots of hints and tricks and the instructor was very well verse in the product which kept you attentive.”

Michele Brice

Apr 1, 2002

“Learning from professionals who have practical and personal knowledge of the applications proved to be extremely helpful. Both instructors used real-life scenarios to illustrate the lessons and demonstrated more than one way to complete a task. I feel better equipped to navigate both programs on my own, not just qualified to repeat the exercises which were covered in class. I will definitely return to Noble for additional classes (the 10% discount doesn’t hurt either). Thanks.”

“At first I was afraid that three hours/twice a week would be too much for me to pay proper attention, especially at the end of the day. However, I actually found the class to move fairly quickly because I was so engrossed in it and was enjoying it so much!”

Jennifer Abadi

Mar 1, 2002

“ Before I walked into the Noble Desktop classroom, I felt like I was taking a serious risk. I made a large payment to take a class that was only going to last 3 days. However, I have been laid-off since November and was really interested in going into my own web design business. I needed to hone my skills, and fast! This was the best bet without having to spend endless hours in a classroom. Now, having completed this course, I feel like this was the best business investment I could have possibly made. The class well exceeded my expectations. I learned so much about Flash that I actually feel competent. I would recommend this to anybody. ”

Joanne Hahn

Mar 1, 2002

“Of all the courses I have taken, this one tops it all! Victoria knew her material and was very articulate, enthusiastic and gave us even extra tips! I enjoyed the HTML/Dreamweaver course! All I have to do is now practice and put all the great information to work. Also, I’m impressed of the method of teaching that’s in the handbook and the accompanying CD to practice at my own pace! It’s very well prepared. The handbook is superior to “Dreamweaver for Dummies”. Excellent method of teaching and great instructor! I highly recommend Noble Desktop courses!”

Edward Otto Zielke

“I liked the warm, relaxing atmosphere, and I really liked the style of teaching. I liked the way Victoria alternated between demonstrating material, and giving us exercises. It was a really good balance between learning from watching and listening, and learning by doing. She expressed interest in the material, and was enthusiastic about it, which made the class even more interesting. She had good eye-contact with the students, which made it easier for me to pay attention. I liked the way she talked to us...not at us. I recommend Noble Desktop to anyone...from raw beginners to experts wishing to refine their skills.”

Alexander Blackiston

Janice Hogan

“I loved the class! I have taken various classes at art schools around the city - the semester long 10 week kind - and this was so much more effective in getting me what I came for. Very focused, organized, scheduled, with a process (teach/exercise/teach/exercise) that got as much into my brain in 3 days as possible.”

Sheila O’Rourke

Dec 13, 2001

“I had a fantastic experience and plan to enroll in other classes over the next year. Thanks for giving me the foundation I needed to pursue my new life as a designer. I now have a good handle on Quark and I must say the Instructor was wonderful, very thorough and patient. She has a vast knowledge of Quark, her experience and knowledge are invaluable.”

“I attended my first day of QuarkXPress class not knowing anything about it and walked away three days later with the confidence and knowledge that I can produce professional, complex, projects with the instruction given. I previously took a semester of Adobe Premiere in college and feel I learned more in the three days at Noble Desktop than I did in 12 weeks of college classes. I can’t wait to take the Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator courses with your company.”

Sharene Clark

Jill Davis

Nov 2, 2001

“I was extremely pleased with the class and hope to take more in the future. The presentations and exercises were clear, thorough and to the point. It is obvious the instructors at Noble Desktop are true professionals with working knowledge of the programs they teach. I’ve endured some fairly horrible program workshops in the last several months, presented by another organization, (whose name I won’t mention), that were replete with useless theories and led by fumbling idiots. So, I can’t tell you what a tremendous relief it was to walk away from a class and actually feel that I had obtained some useful lessons and tangible directions that I will be able to apply to my daily work routine.”

Mary Ryan

Nov 1, 2001

“Everything was just as it should be. I knew this from visiting years ago, and I was right. The class size was small, the overhead display was effective for those of us with failing eyes, the instructors were succinct and humorous, and I love the book. I will forget nearly everything in a month or so, but I can look it up in the book!”

Johanna Coxeter

“The teachers are great and the exercises are very easy-to-follow and to understand, unlike with courses at other schools. Time seemed to fly by while learning Flash!”

Randy Vogt

“having used Photoshop for over a year I was still a novice, and knew that I was only utilizing about 1% of the program’s capabilities. I knew 10x more than I did when I walked in by the time we broke for lunch on the first day. The material and the instructor were fantastic!”

Jennifer Whitlow

Oct 23, 2001

“I have taken two courses at Noble Desktop and I am now able to use Dreamweaver and Photoshop with confidence.

William Schaefer

“I have finished the Dreamweaver/HTML class, registered for an upcoming Flash 5 class, and I also see the Photoshop and Fireworks on the horizon. My honest opinion is that learning from Noble Desktop’s instructors is learning from the best. In addition to being a webmaster, I am also a certified Police Instructor- and I can tell when instructors are enthusiastic and knowledgeable in their field. That said, Noble training stands head and shoulders over the competition.”

Bob Brandoff

Bettina Riccio Henry

My instructor had a lot of experience in the print business and was able to provide valuable information and useful tips that go beyond a class agenda.

“Dan was an excellent instructor that’s knowledge was complimented by his enthusiastic nature and encouragement of the class to learn and excel. I think you could just have a class that he just spoke and it would provide a wealth of information.”

Monica Tate

Jul 27, 2001

“ NobleDesktop.com provided a highly informative and in-depth class that covered all fundamental aspects of Flash in a fully comprehensive manner. Our instructor Victoria Torres took us through Flash step-by-step while explaining the logic behind what we were doing, which to me is one of the most valuable, if not the most valuable elements of any learning process. I am highly satisfied with the quality of education I received from NobleDesktop.com and plan on returning ASAP for the Advanced Flash 5 Class! ”

Leila Kim

“I came to Noble as an independent contractor who worked on the content side of the web universe and wanted to understand the concepts that the “design people” were implementing. Over the course of a week at Noble, I came to see that I could swing it as a design person myself.”

Jessica O’Brien

“Your training style is the style of learning I find most rewarding. I am an adjunct at two universities teaching computer-related software courses and instruct in the same fashion: theory, show & tell, and then let ‘em loose. The exercises were chuck-full of hands-on skill building. A real confidence booster.”

Jane Konnerth
