The training note are not organized and incorrect except for the first 2 modules, Other 6 modules are not correctly shown accordance to the content page.

Although the notes are incorrect, the trainer Edmund Heng has shown his professionalism by giving me his coaching back on his knowledge. His systematic way of teaching and guiding me to understand what is After Effects is good. Thanks Edmund for your guidance

Donovan went out of his way to explain after effects but also teaching us about design and how we can implement that into our future projects. He is very engaging and I feel like we could all talk ages not just about this particular subject but get side tracked on so many other design related interests and continue to learn about anything and everything and he made it so interesting.

Probably we need to lengthen the duration of the course since our instructor overshot. This is fully understandable because there are many aspects to be covered and given that the participants are beginners they might not catch up as fast as what is being instructed.

Overall even though we were left with 2 more modules and Cinema 4D to be covered but I feel I actually 'leveled up' and has more in depth knowledge of how everything works in AE. I think the exercises provided by the instructor is also very relevant. Really awesome. Can't wait to redo and complete them on my own for self practice. I think the pace of the course is also just right for me, not too slow and not too fast. Probably because I already had a solid background in Flash/Animate and Premiere plus some previous experience in 3D Max and AE seems very much like a mix of all three, so everything seems very straightforward and easy to grasp (Posted on 3/29/2017)

The course was very interesting but they were many modules to be covered and one day training could be too short. If possible, make the course to 2-day training instead. (Posted on 3/28/2017)

screen size at the training venue is a little too small for students to see clearly, however the small class size allow trainee to attend to student easily.

trainee is highly knowledgeable in her subject, and can teach much more given more time. however there is no intermediate nor advance courses as a follow up which is a pity. Likewise for other courses provided in tertiary course (Posted on 9/16/2016)
