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.

The class was chock for info and practical knowledge. Even more helpful if you some background with setting up and managing websites. I wished the class handouts would tie better to the materials presented in the class powerpoints so that you can follow along to take notes more easily.

Kalika's class was very informative and took a easy approach to learning to what seems like an intimidating interface which reduced my fear of learning this new software. With some practice I feel like a pro and I loved her humor.

Not a bad class at all if it's the first one you're taking, regarding digital marketing. It walks you through setting up a Google Ads (formerly Google Adwords) account, the creation of ads, campaigns and ad groups, all the basics. However, I had previously taken a Digital Marketing Bootcamp class, and a lot of these concepts were already covered there. I really would have liked to get into how you analyze the data from your ads: where to access the data, how to collate it, etc. Nicole obviously knows what she's doing, but there were times when she was just reading off of her slides and not really explaining what it means, and then moving on. We were able to freely ask questions throughout, though.

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.
