Our classes build upon each other and we recommend they be taken in order. We have found that even advanced users can greatly improve their efficiency by learning shortcuts. We move fast and make sure that both beginners and advanced users get value from each session.

We focus on exposing students to many features and not on memorizing where every detail is hidden. Our philosophy is if you know something is possible, then you can look it up. If you don’t know it exists, then you will never know to look it up.

On site classes are four hours in length, with one break to regenerate brain cells. We prefer to use your computers so that each student can become familiar with their equipment and save files to work on later. We like to schedule sequential classes no more than 1 week apart to help with retention. Accommodations can be made for three shifts and weekends if needed. Class size limited to 10 people.

Classes start at $1500 per session. That works out to $150 per person if you fill the class, and your employees don’t have any travel expenses. Save even more by booking the complete series of 4 classes in 4 weeks and get a $250 discount!
