Great introduction to SketchUp

An effective two day introductory course to SketchUp, Dan modelled the course to best suit our intended use of the programme and was a great and patient teacher. I finished the course with the confidence to get stuck in myself to develop my own skills.

Great top up course – it’s surprising how much you can still learn!

Great top up course provided by Dan. Took the time to understand what I already knew and what I needed to work on. Lots of useful tips and advice – would strongly recommend to anyone looking to use sketch up or improve what they already know.

An essential and inspiring welcome to the power of SketchUp…

A thoroughly enjoyable and structured introduction to this essential creative tool by the professionals.

Dan’s tutoring is first class and he explained each aspect thoroughly, ensuring that none of us were left behind, whilst moving sequentially through the elements that are eventually combined to provide a more than an enticing taster of where SketchUp can take you…
I was in great company with my fellow adventurers, which definitely contributed to a fantastic few days on so many levels both personally and professionally.

Fantastic tuition.

Fantastic tuition with a very patient instructor. This is the best instructional training CPD on software I have received to date.
Resources were well prepared and instruction and advice was also given on bespoke projects/ideas.
I would highly recommend this course.
