have virtual course availability for people on the West Coast, Pacific Time, as in does not start at 6am and lunch at 9am, very disruptive

This was an excellent course. The only criticism I have is that the material was covered very quickly, and there were no handouts that would allow students to remember or recreate the steps that were used to complete the assignments. So, now that I am back home and trying to do some of the same things in Adobe After Effects that we did during the course, I have trouble remembering exactly what to do (e.g.: what icon to click, what drop-down menu to select). Step-by-step handouts would be very useful!

The only reason I gave the seminar schedule two stars was because I was participating remotely from the west coast so a start time of 9am EST was difficult to manage. Otherwise, good course all-around.

I thought the instructor did a good job in keeping the class moving despite have most of us online. There were a few times the class went on some tangents that were not relevant to all parties. We didn't use the files provided to us prior to the training. I feel that I would have felt more accomplished if I had put together a cohesive course as part of the session, rather than try this and play for a bit. I don't really have anything too concrete to go back and refer to as I begin to create using Storyline.

Eliquo was great! Their instructions prior to class were clear, as was the presentation. The lessons were very helpful and it was great to have homework inculding a completed version for our reference. Other documents such as the PDF with all the steps that we covered were very helpful and will continue to be as my learning progresses. Kam was awesome - a great instructor with clear knowledge of Adobe Captivate and a great sense of humor to boot! Thank you Kam and Eliquo!

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.

I was very impressed with this course and the instructor. The only improvement I could suggest is to provide course materials, especially ones that would facilitate note taking. The course was fast paced enough that it was sometimes difficult to take notes. But I wouldn't change the pace - it was just right.

There's no parking, you need a key to access the washroom and it's usually quite cold in the kitchen and classrooms. The instructor is very knowledgeable but lacks presentation skills; he talks non-stop, so you never get a change to process anything. He spends way too much time going over what are his personal preferences for working with the software, at least the first 1.5 hours(!!) then ran out of time to do things that were on the course outline such as Working with a Wacom Tablet with Photoshop Brushes, and adding water droplets. (Two things that I was very much looking forward to = ( ) For verification, the course outline is available here: http://en.eliquo.ca/adobe/training-courses/photoshop/photographic-techniques.php Feel free to mention this to Eliquo, as I've commented on this instructor's presentation skills multiple times, however he is pretty much the only one teaching these courses... = (

The venue and staff was great, very welcoming. I did not however realize that this course would be as in depth and as technical as it was. I have very little experience with this program so I was looking for a more basic overview. I did learn a lot about Acrobat Pro as the instructor was very knowledgeable but I do not believe that I will use most of what we covered in the course. Also, I would have benefited from having a manual as I could have written my notes beside the printscreens in the book and it would have been easier to refer back to it.

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!

This was an excellent course and the instructor was very knowledgeable. He explained every step clearly and simply. He showed you how to do things and gave you time to try it yourself. The course outline was precise and we covered everything mentioned. It was a great atmosphere, very clean and hospitable (coffee, tea, snacks, a fridge for your lunch, tableware, an area to sit for lunch or break). I would definitely recommend Eliquo for any training and will definitely be going back for other courses.

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!

More hands-on time would be nice. Perhaps 2 days of lecture/training and use the third day to create a project using the topics learned in the first two days. Also, handing out the course manual is the standard in all traning environments, not at the end of the course. Students/participants use text books/manuals to follow along with the verbal instruction and also take notes to assist with their own knowledge gain.
