Onsite Adobe After Effects Courses

Our bespoke Adobe After Effects courses can be organised onsite at your offices on dates to suit you or your team. This means we can arrange a private tailored course with content customised to your workflow requirements, on dates to suit you and without the need to leave the office! This offers many advantages and there is no increase in the actual training cost although basic travel expenses may be additional for courses organised outside of the London, Manchester or Newcastle areas.



We can provide this course onsite at your offices without additional expenses in a wide range of locations surrounding our main training centres including anywhere with the M25 and greater Manchester but many others so please ask for details based on your location.

5/5 Stars

"Great tutor, great content - really learnt a great deal over 2 days. "

5/5 Stars

"Possibly too quick for beginner course. I've learned a lot, but not enough time to right down how I've done it. Though After Effects is a complicated piece of software."

4/5 Stars

"If anything, After Effects Beginner Level Course was a little faster paced than Premiere Pro Beginner Course I attended last week. It just made it a little harder to follow & take notes at the same time. "

5/5 Stars

"Although I had a basic understanding of the course topics it still taught me a lot about workflow and why you use the things we use and a lot of visual effects things that I did not know. Thank you "

"Thanks Simon!!"

4/5 Stars

"Very chilled atmosphere and friendly tuition. The smaller class sizes definitely make a difference."

4/5 Stars

"Not having any knowledge at all of After Effects meant that I was not easily able to navigate around it - as a starter to the course it would have been very helpful if some time could be spent on the basic navigation tools."

4/5 Stars

"This course has been brilliant - I have learnt more than I was expecting from a beginners course and the tutor went through everything at a good pace for everyone in the room. I feel much more confident in the software now and hope to be able to do the next stage of the training at a later date to improve further. "

"Simon was excellent."

4/5 Stars

"Simon is a great personality to learn from. Unfortunately we had issues where the Macs in the training room were not working so we wasted 30 minutes. A nice surprise is that we got some official Adobe books to takeaway BUT there was not enough to go around all the team - these will be sent on to the office, hopefully. Otherwise a great couple of days - really enjoyed and had fun refreshing my skills in AE"

"Bespoke training much appreciated in helping to gain the most from the time spent within training room. This will help me achieve my project tasks much more quickly and efficiently.
