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.

Michelle was a great teacher and I feel so much less intimidated by indesign. I can't wait to start practicing and using my skills at work. I would definitely recommend this course and I am already looking to take another class maybe in photoshop!
This class was well organized and the teacher was very good. The workbook and exercises were totally clear and easy to follow. My only small complaint is that if class begins 10 or 15 minutes late because not everyone has showed up, then that time should be added on at the end. Also, an hour for lunch isn't necessary, could be half an hour. Overall, though, great class, good intro to indesign, a fair amount of material gets covered.
best $50 i've ever spent. amazing class and great instruction from trevor.
Michelle covered a lot in one day. She was very thorough and patient. I think there was so much information that it was a little confusing at the end but it was definitely very informative.
First off, the instructor was awesome, but I think there are 2 areas you can clean up: • I feel the 'how to' guide was lacking in readability and overall design - as a basic introduction to AE I feel there should have been more/better visuals • I think there was just too much content to cram in 3 days All in all, I had a great experience - button up the two above points and it's gold! Thanks, Daniel
Loved it, easy to follow and good material. Definitely for sketch beginners or those just wanted a simple but thorough run through of the fundamentals.
Loved Scott as a teacher, I'm so much more knowledgable and can't wait to continue to build on this HTML CSS foundation!
Have to take this class totally made me less fearful.
Good teacher, nice space.
