The Academy Class Guarantee

Did you know that Academy Class is also 100 per cent committed to ensuring you understand the concepts we teach in all our classroom-based courses and that you have met the course objectives?

We understand that you rely on us to get a good grasp the key concepts taught in our training. We also realize that if you don't fully understand the content when you leave, the money and time you'd spend repeating the same course is a cost your business could do without.

We believe that our high-quality training courses will meet and exceed your expectations and enable you learn the concepts you need to know, first time. And we want you to be confident that we'll support you through your learning experience by proving our commitment to delivering a high-quality & easily-understood course.

That's why we've introduced the Academy Class Guarantee.

Here's How it Works
We make an upfront commitment to you that you'll be comfortable with what you learn in our classes.

If you don't feel that you've grasped the concepts and can put the training into practice, we invite you to repeat the same course within a six-month period absolutely free of charge*. We also offer specific "Refresher" days where you won't need to sit the whole class again, just come in armed with your questions.

Academy Class's Guarantee, means you can rest assured that if you're still uncertain about what you've learned, you can come back free of charge* and sit the class again. It's that simple.

Student Story

Teresa Flavin - Dreamweaver Website Design

'Academy Class’s introductory Dreamweaver course more than fulfilled my needs and expectations. The instructor not only led us through several approaches to website building using Dreamweaver, but was able to tailor them to participants’ individual requirements. He demystified terminology and familiarised us with “server-side” programmes.

He introduced us to slick ways of showing folios online as well as shortcuts and tricks to get our pages looking polished. I actually began to believe that I could get a great new site up and running by myself. I would recommend this course to any illustrator wanting to develop a professional site that s/he can maintain personally, or to take over maintenance of an existing site.'
