Course Aspects

I have been teaching this course in person and online since 2017 and have perfected the course material, teaching method, and explanations to ensure all the bases are covered and the student has a full understanding of the software.

Your level of experience will develop as we progress through the course, rather than overloading you from the start with unnecessary information that you will not use.

We start with the basic features of each tool and then move on to the more advanced features as the course progresses, continually putting these newly acquired skills to practice with multiple exercises.
