Under prerequisites, Eliquo stated: ADAI101—Adobe Illustrator CS5 is essential; however, the pace of the advanced course was very fast and assumed that, in addition to ADAI101, participants had a certain proficiency / practical experience level. As such, it would have been very helpful if Eliquo had stated the minimum number of hours of practical experience needed to join the Advanced Illustrator course. At best, I received some exposure vs. learning specifics.

The introduction at each session which includes a detailed explanation of post-course support and an overview of the outline takes way too much time (upto 45 minutes on average). If you are taking the course, you already know the outline and it should only take 10 minutes to quickly go through the post-course support. People with questions can always ask during the break. Everything else with Eliquo is excellent!
