Very useful and enjoyable day with excellent instructor.

The training is at a low enough level initially to get you into the software without scaring you off, but then it also goes deeper into things later. Questions and individual needs were covered very well involving all of the other students.

Took a three day course in AutoCAD 2017 as an introduction to the new version and refresher for my experience to date, also to see how it should be done, as all I have learned so far was through books and experience. The course was informative, well paced and I came out with more knowledge (and a big book) that I had before, so I'd say it was a success! Thanks very much.

Julian H

I would recommend this training as I found it a very good, informative introduction to InDesign. It left me inspired to want to start using the software.

The technical authoring courses I attended with Armada were extremely beneficial to me when starting out as a tech author. A new colleague is joining the department and I have recommended he attends these courses for the same reason. After a few more months experience with us, he will return for the advanced course. All the courses I have undertaken with Armada have been extremely good, and I hope to get the opportunity for more training soon!

The inventor training course was extremely beneficial to myself and others who participated in it :) Although I don't work directly with this software, it is a great way of me understanding the software and in the future I now have the foundation to start working with the programme.

Nigel was a very good trainer and made the whole day interesting.

Excellent course and facilities. Thank you to Nigel and Crow for providing well-structured and thorough training in technical authoring skills and their application. Thank you also to Emily for excellent communication during the course booking process and to both ladies for the daily warm welcome, and ensuring that copious amounts of refreshments were available.

Jane F

Excellent delivery - very knowledgeable trainer and the skills we have learnt are going to be extremely useful.

Scott T

The training was extremely beneficial and during the course, I was able to relate it back to what I do in my work environment.

Gemma S

Very clear and good pacing of the course. Well structured with an overarching "story" to it all which gives good context and understanding of what we are learning at any given step.

Ramsey D

This is the fourth course held by Martin I have attended and he has not yet once failed to deliver anything but a first class course with excellent knowledge, experience and good humour. Once again, many thanks.

Anthony C

Very useful course, I would recommend it to anybody who has no AutoCAD experience. We worked at a good pace, the instructor was very helpful, everybody was friendly and the lunch provided was fantastic. I would like to come back for the next level.

Christian W

Superb course. Thanks very much!

Frazer P

I would recommend this course as it was set at a good pace and not too mind blowing. It was interesting as well.
