warning AutoCAD 301: Creating 3D Models is not available on Springest

"AcademyClass's AutoCAD 301 is a shambles!

The knowledge and experience to be instructing AutoCAD was not apparent in the instructor!

Academy Class's instructor failed to grasp AutoCAD's basic tools, often requiring many attempts to execute correctly. During the course the instructor struggled to navigate the AutoCAD interface. Questions regarding the course content proved problematic for the instructor to answer successfully. The most appalling aspect was that throughouot the whole course the trainer often refered to YouTube!

As for Academy Class itself they have no Customer service and are unable to follow their own procedures.

After the initial first contact and submitting their complaints form to Academy Class's Operations Manager, Gary Appleyard in 23 September 2014 my emails and telephone calls regarding my complaint have been continuously ignored to this day.

The cost of the course is £697 ex VAT, their is no support if your are unsatisfied with the course.

Academy Class is the new media training company of choice for creatives and developers in UK and beyond. We're passionate about encouraging creativity, building online communities and encouraging innovation. Do you want to be a film and TV editor, graphic designer or computer games developer? Or an architect using the latest package in computer-aided design (CAD) and 3D? Perhaps you're interested in learning web design and development? Come and take our digital media courses that will give you the confidence to be part of the industry today. We are the only UK training partner to be authorised by Adobe, Apple, Autodesk and Wacom. We are a MAXON Certified Training Provider, also accredited by RIBA.

Our hands-on courses are held at our training facilities in London, Manchester, Glasgow, Newcastle, Cardiff and Birmingham. We can also conduct training on-site at your facility. Either way, we purposely keep our class sizes small, usually less than ten students. With our smaller class sizes, we have found that students are more eager to interact in class and consequently leave with a more fulfilling experience.

Want a job in new media? In an established digital company? Going freelance? To stay ahead as a creative or developer, it's crucial to keep your skills sharp. Everybody expects the best and the best keep getting better. Academy Class is the leading new media trainer with a network of training centres in the UK. We specialise in helping creatives, marketers and developers take their work to the next level. We provide new media courses, web design courses, design & print courses, photography courses, social media courses, video editing courses and computer-aided design (CAD) courses to private one-to-one training and complete programmes designed to develop your professional skills. So whether you're an experienced media professional, a creative with some experience or a complete beginner, Academy Class can help.

The creative industries are experiencing a seismic shift in the way they do business. Demand is moving from the static to the dynamic, from print to online, and the drive for digital campaigns, digital communications and digital communities is increasing. Academy Class believes in the power of new media to help businesses to grow and individuals to succeed. We educate and innovate in the classroom, online, offline and are a source of knowledge and encouragement for our clients. 

Professional Instructors

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 allow you plenty of time to experiment and ask questions.

Academy Class Guarantee

Another reason our classes are successful is because we offer an unconditional Academy Class Guarantee. 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 free of charge. 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.
