Noble Desktop has been teaching courses in desktop publishing and web design since 1991. We currently offer comprehensive day and evening classes in Adobe InDesign , Adobe Photoshop , Adobe Illustrator , Web Site Creation (featuring HTML and Adobe Dreamweaver ), Adobe Flash , and Final Cut Pro .
Mac or PC?
We teach on both Macintosh and Windows PCs. The software works almost identically, but we respect your need to work on the same platform as your work or home computer. Regardless of platform, all of our computers have 19" monitors and the most up-to-date software to make your learning experience pleasant as well as efficient.
Our instructors are professionals who work full-time in the field and bring their working knowledge to the classroom to enhance your learning experience. If you want, check out their complete bios ! The length and structure of our courses allows you plenty of time to experiment and ask questions.
For a complete education in making websites, check out our Certificate in Web Design , approved by the New York State Department of Education. It covers Dreamweaver, Fireworks, and Flash from a beginner through advanced level. We also present Certificates of Completion for each individual class you take.
Written Reference Material
In every class, we provide you with a custom training manual featuring step by step exercises and Power User keyboard shortcut guides that you can use long after the class is over. Our syllabus for each class is comprehensive, designed by people who are in the business, to answer the questions that always come up in a professional working environment.
Three-week or 3-day Classes
Our training courses come in two varieties. The standard class meets for three weeks, twice per week in 3-hour sessions. But for out-of-towners and New Yorkers in a hurry, we offer 3-day classes that meet 6 hours per day with a lunch break. Since we are conveniently located in Soho and Silicon Alley, many of our students go to the fashionable shops after class.
Word-of-Mouth is What Keeps Us in Business
We hardly advertise, and yet our classes are more filled than ever. We must be doing something right because word-of-mouth is our number one marketing tool.
Another reason our classes are successful is because we offer an unconditional money-back guarantee . If after the first day of class you don’t absolutely LOVE IT, we will give you a full refund, no questions asked! One session is all it takes to see that our classes are thorough, informative, fun, and taught by the best instructors. No other school will give you a full refund—not Parsons School of Design, not School of Visual Arts, not New York University.
To show how much we value our students, we offer a 10% discount on any class after the first. And for businesses, every employee after the first gets a 10% discount. Heck, we have a 10% family discount as well. If any member of your family has taken a class at Noble, you get 10% off.
