I have just completed the three day 101 After Effects course remotely linking up to London. The course was excellent and that was down to the instructor Ben Dale. Ben was engaging, interesting and provided fantastic exercises for the class to work on as well as excellent notes to take away. I would recommend any course with Ben in the future.
There was no option of using an Apple Mac which wasn't clear when booking. All other courses I have attended there have been options. We had no access to the room without someone unlocking the door so going to the toilet etc could mean you were locked out of the corridor and couldn't get back in. I would've expected lunch to be included in a course of this cost. Its a longer walk from Piccadilly than what it states on the details.
The training lab itself was not a very suitable, too small, poor tables/chairs etc.. not got suitable air con and far too small for the amount of people in it. also for the price, lunch should be provided. i would suggest that the training could be a little more bespoke if we could have a day where it was about creating our own project with our own company's assets that we submit before hand.
Brilliant course - I was a total newcomer and now I feel confident that I could do the essentials of After Effects on my own. Ian the instructor was very listenable and engaging while teaching. He was attentive to those who asked questions or needed help and gave us interesting tasks to do to keep us engaged! Would highly recommend to others.
