FACT #2: Graphic design courses are offered in a private classroom environment where one-to-one does in fact mean one-to one!

In the past, learning graphic design online involved attending a college, university or learning with videos such as the popular Udemy site. This has changed with the advancements in technology such as remote learning or e-learning as it sometimes referred to. Remote learning is a modern way to learn from home where classes online are very similar to classes in a real classroom except classes online happen in a virtual classroom (we run our classes using specialist conferencing training software) involving you (the student), the graphic design tutor and a white board. The direct tutor to student ratio means the student has ample time with the tutor across 9 months of study.

FACT #3:
Our classes are flexible, and we offer them on weekends and evenings too!

Learning graphic design online is not only easy but also very flexible since we typically offer classes from 08:00 am for those early birds that catch the worm to 9:30 pm for those more nocturnal. After completing the course with a bit of hard work and passion with the exercises completed you will be having a quality and praised portfolio and certification of content in graphic design. You may be able to create and sell design templates for newsletters, annual reports, letterheads, etc. You will have the ability to make your own business by either selling such commodities or selling a custom design service.

The skills that you are equipped with during the training will enable you to create great designs on websites, logo and the entire world at your disposal!
