Our Learning System

To create legitimate professionals, we apply a proven four-tier system of learning:

1. Textbook Tutorials

The first step in our learning process is to read through the chapters and work through the tutorials in our textbooks. This gives an introduction to each subject, along with a basic understanding of how the theories and tools operate.

2. Video Tutorials

As a supplement to the textbooks, every enrolled student has access to over 100,000 video tutorials through a subscription to Lynda.com.

3. Live Lectures & Demonstrations

Another component in our learning process is our live “TechCrunch” Series. On specific days our instructors give lectures and live demonstrations to reinforce production techniques, concepts or best practices.

4. Hands-On Projects

Periodically, in each course, students apply their newly-acquired knowledge by completing hands-on projects from scratch. These projects are used in their professional portfolios and help to build their professional branding!


Industry-Recognized Certifications

Enrolled students can train and test for their Adobe ACA Certifications in InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, Dreamweaver and Flash. Practice tests are available for each of these certifications. Students are permitted up to 2 attempts on the Final tests (at no additional cost) on-site. If a student requires 3 or more attempts to pass, then he/she would have to find another Adobe Certifications testing facility to take those tests (and pay any necessary testing fees).
