Fantastic instructor. This has genuinely been the best training program I've ever been on!

Matt Beveridge, Iris Worldwide, Maxon Cinema 4D - 2 Day Introduction

Really good course. Wish I would have taken it sooner and saved myself learning things on my own, but was nice to confirm and tidy up my knowledge.

Jenny Naylor, Exact Abacus, HTML & CSS Two Day Introduction

I was first sceptical of this course, with regards to the knowledge I would gain in such a short time, but having taken this course, I could not have been happier. The tutor was fantastic, very knowledgable and helpful. I would not only recommend XChange training but would consider doing further courses myself.

Gary Carney, none, HTML & CSS - 2 Day Introduction

Excellent course that was delivered at a good pace and very easy to understand and apply.

David Cunningham, Animate Introduction - Two Days

The course was set at the right pace. The course instructor was very approachable, friendly, patient. Overall a good course.
