Red Rocket Studio really know their stuff and I learnt a huge amount in 2 days. Their teaching style is also sensitive with just the right amount of humour. Being self-taught on Adobe CC I was apprehensive about undergoing any training with not knowing at exactly what level I was. I need not have worried as they quickly assessed my abilities and instantly adjusted their teaching accordingly. I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to progress in Adobe CC and can’t wait for my next course with them.
