The training was enjoyable and tailored to cater for those who had never used it before through to those who had used it for years. The knowledge imparted on us made working with the tool easier and left us excited about what we can achieve. I would strongly recommend Christopher and his team to anyone needing Axure training.
— Product Owner and User Interface Specialist at a major Government Department
Chris is very knowledgeable and skilled, very engaging and interesting to listen to and explains each step with a lot of precision. The course was highly practical and hands-on, the best way to learn!

I went from not having any experience with Axure to feeling as though I could produce prototypes effectively within a day.
