what students say:
- Digital Training & Designs is modern, clean, it has very easy access, and the staff is so friendly and helpful (sounds like a cliche but it's true). The computers and software worked without breaking down, the Net speed was faster than I anticipated and the very best thing within the classroom was the additional monitor on my desktop to view what you were showing me (vs. the old projector-style 'look up here' form). This was the first time I had the privledge to experience that as a student and now it will be hard to accept any other type of training!
