Hello everyone,

I want to wish each and everyone a Happy Holidays and all the best going forward in the New Year.

Some changes are taking place and are still in the process of happening.

The Digital Design Studio has just gone through a pretty significant system update.  We’re happy to announce that a lot of the software has been updated to the latest versions.  This is also true in the Learning Centres.

We’re still expecting some new equipment with regards to scanners, but I wanted to give you a quick update about the latest software and what versions we are running at the moment.

In addition, we expanded our classes and are proud to introduce two new workshops that continue where we left off with Adobe Photoshop and Dreamweaver.  Click here for Photoshop II and here for Website Design II for more info and remember to call User Education to book a spot for the upcoming dates.
