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.

Our Students Love Us! 2000+ Testimonials and Counting
We offer our guarantee because we think we’re the best—but don’t take our word for it. Read the more than 2000 industry professionals who loved our classes so much they used their real names with testimonialand are putting what they learned to use on the job.

Attended: After Effects in a Day


Kalika was wonderful! I enjoyed the course and learned a lot. My only critique is pretty specific to me personally and not a judgement on the class as a whole... I tend to learn pretty quickly and I felt a lot of the "lab" time between chapters ran long. I was able to skip ahead and finish the second project about halfway through the day, so I felt like I was doing a lot of sitting and waiting for everyone else to catch up. I was able to start lesson B (the extra lesson at the end of the book with the HBO logo) but I would have loved to learn a couple more advanced tricks and tips since I am unable to take the more involved AE courses offered at this time. Basically I felt like the course could have been a little more condensed and/or covered a bit more of the program's interface.

The class was definitely for beginners that haven't opened sketch yet. I've been working in sketch for only a few months and I thought I could learn something new in this class but it was more basic than I thought. Also, the teacher read straight from the book. Next time, I'm just going to buy the book instead of attend the class.

It was educational, but I was ahead of the teacher for most of the class. She seemed to know the course content, but didn't necessarily come prepared for additional questions that didn't stem immediately from the course work.

This course is great for anyone who knows little to nothing about HTML & CSS. This is second time I've taken a class at Noble Desktop and I intend to book another course with them. They're great! Instructions are easy to follow and I always leave feeling like I've learned more than I expected.

It's a good class with a capable instructor. However, this is not a concise overview of the software in 2 sessions, these are only the first 2 sessions of a 3-week course.

I was hoping to learn CSS, not just have him following and showing us what's in the book.

This was a good theory class. There was very little practice/application during class but we did have projects to work on as homework. The instructor was very eager to share his industry experience and application skills. Overall it's a great class to learn about art history, typography, color, etc. It's mainly lecture focused.
