Where is the Photoshop training taking place


Situated in the beautiful and vibrant Chelmsford campus near the centre of Chelmsford. Registration is in the Lord Ashcroft Building where there is a Costa coffee shop and a restaurant that serve exceptionally reasonably priced food and drinks in a beautiful environment.



The training course is next door in the Marconi building in a fully equipped training room that can seat 20 people at desks, however we like to have small groups (8 max) so that everybody gets individual attention from the trainer resulting in a much more personal course experience with far better training results.
