Noble Desktop teaches people how to build websites, make apps, and create digital content. We offer comprehensive day, evening, and weekend classes as well as certificate programs in web design, web development, and digital publishing. Our curricula and workbooks are used by colleges and schools worldwide.
Noble Desktop was established in 1990, and has been training designers, coders, professionals, and career-changers ever since. We've seen literally dozens of schools appear and disappear since our founding. But Noble has persisted and thrived due to the quality of our curriculum and instructors. With Noble Desktop you can count on original curriculum, computers supplied in classrooms, free retakes, and a money-back guarantee.
We Wrote the Book Ourselves
Most of our classes include a custom training workbook written by our top instructors. Take it home with you: with step-by-step exercises and power-user keyboard shortcut guides, it’s like having a refresher course right on your desk. We wrote the book ourselves because we couldn't find any book that was good enough. Now our books are being used by other schools and training centers worldwide.
We Provide Computers, Mac or PC
Since when did training centers expect you to "bring a laptop"? Noble Desktop has always had classrooms full of computers, Mac and PC. Each computer is loaded with software and has a 19-inch monitor. The next time you are asked to "bring a laptop," ask why you aren't being provided a computer. Noble Desktop always has up-to-date equipment in our state-of-the-art classrooms.
We Are NY State-Licensed, and Adobe Authorized
When looking at a computer training school, check to see if they are NY State-licensed. Any school in New York should be licensed by law. Noble Desktop follows state-issued guidelines for curriculum development and teacher licensing. Adobe Authorized means our instructors have passed the rigorous Adobe Certification Exam, and that we follow Adobe's quality-control standards.

Based on the amount of time we had, I thought we learned a great deal of Photoshop! As someone who has never used Photoshop, I was able to get an understanding of the fundamentals and I feel I will be able to "hold my own" when using the software. Of course, I will need to learn more, but for what it was, I think it was great!
I enjoyed the structure of this class. Instructor was thorough, knowledgeable, and provided a really great introductory level course. Great for people who have dabbled with HTML in the past, as well as those who are brand new to it.
Michelle is a cool teacher, I know she only has so many hours to teacher everything, but she wen t a liitle quick for me. But then again I am a hands on learner. Besides that the class was great.
This course was extremely easy to follow. Scott did an amazing job simplifying HTML & CSS.
The class was very well organized and taught well. I did not realize how beginner the class would be.
Really concise, informative, and entertaining. The instructor was incredible, and I learned the basics of HTML quite quickly!
Comprehensive overview of SEO in clear, concise, and easy to digest class. Eager to learn more on this topic!
This was a perfect introduction to Photoshop. The little assignments were incredibly helpful and I was really pleased that we were given books with instructions to take home for future reference. Instructor was friendly and helpful, classroom and computers were really nice. I've already recommended Noble Desktop to a few people and will definitely take more classes in the future.
A comprehensive course you'll get in a day as long as you're willing to learn. Michele was a great instructor, really liked her upbeat personality teaching the class.
