What others say.

  • A great all round course, instruction and content delivery. Looking forward to my next course... Cheers!

  • I found learning at the CCE a great experience. The tutor was very knowledgeable and I came away with new skills I am able to tie into my daily working environment. The tutor was also very helpful when we required extra assistance.

  • I thought the course was great. I’d never used Premier Pro before, but since completing the course I feel confident to start using it. The tutor was very patient and explained everything step by step, but also gave us the opportunity to work by ourselves using what had been taught.

  • Great course – got plenty from it, and the tutor was very knowledgeable and helpful. Will definitely use the Centre for future training needs.

  • A great, practical course. I learnt a lot and had the chance to practice those newly learnt skills in class. Good facilities, location, resources and a really knowledgeable, friendly tutor.

  • Facilities were excellent, topics were all covered very well.

  • A very useful course, well presented and adequately paced.

  • Excellent course, tutor, and lesson plan. Have learnt so much in such a short space of time. Will be booking further courses with you asap.

  • This was an excellent course – I learned so much and the pace was perfect. The presenter was very helpful too.
