This survey is not set up correctly to evaluate the sessions attended virtually (as I did). I suggest the instructor check in with the students who are training virtually more to ensure they are at the same pace as the classroom students.

This was online training so can't comment about facilities. The trainer really was excellent in his execution and explanation of course material. His pace was perfect and explained things very well with enthusiasm throughout the day. The only thing was being virtual training, there were moments when the mic was not clear, fuzzy or inaudible.

This was a great course, lots of information given but quite useful! The instructor is very knowledgeable, helpful and easy to follow. I wish the class would be 3 days instead of 2 days since the last afternoon content was a little rushed. Although the important things to know where learned on day 1 mostly. Great place and looking forward to taking more courses!

The content was excellent, and we had some opportunities to apply what we learned; however, because Illustrator has a steep learning curve, I needed at least another half to full day in a "lab" to fully implement what we learned.
Reviewed by 2012
A course manual would have been helpful - something to follow along with during the cours and make personal training notes and tips which you can refer to at a later date.
