Feedback from our clients

I Would definitely recommend Keyline as the service and training is excellent. Quick certified courses - and it's much easier to do.

Ashley Naidu

Friendly atmosphere, updated software and equipment. The instructor was very clued up and helped us understand the concepts clearly.

Janice Solai

It was a great way to learn about the software and tools in such a short period of time. The instructor was great, he was on the ball and knew exactly what he was talking about.

Arika Dewkinunan

I was satisfied with how we were guided step by step during the Photoshop workshop. Our instructors were easy to approach when one of us fell behind. It is a very inviting environment.
