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.

The course was very insightful, it was run very efficiently and covered a lot of top topics
Class was good. Challenged ppl creatively but the fundamentals of graphic design could have been explained in more depth. Ex: kerning and leading. Two important fundamentals of graphic design that was covered in 2 minutes. Spend more time on The basics that help designs make a lasting impact and give / show examples. Overall i would say the class was not worth the dollar amount I paid.
The course was great! The teacher was superb! She took her time to explain everything clearly and was very helpful! Definitely worth going if you are a small business owner and need more customers.
Very enthusiastic instructor. Class was fun!
Eugenio is a great teacher! Energetic, kind, patient, and an expert in the topic. I only took off a star because the rest of my classmates seemed kind of disinterested in being there, which was surprising for continuing education. So there wasn't really a sense of camaraderie, but I did get a solid foundation and introduction to Illustrator.
Great teacher! Learned a lot in one day.
Very good for learning with no experience or for filling in the gaps from self teaching AfterEffects. Wish there were a little more complex concepts taught other than just moving shapes around on 2D space but you can only teach so much in a day. Got a little too quick towards the end when exporting projects and learning different compressions so it felt arbitrary to even explain. But overall good class and great teacher, perfect pace for learning from scratch and if you need to learn specifically how to make gifs and logos
Class was great. I learned a lot and left with a clear understanding of the material.
Second half of the class moved a little too quickly
