I highly recommend BigRockTraining – Peter was excellent and provided first class training on Google Analytics & Google Tag manager. He was fully engaged and answered our numerous questions over the two day course. I found the training very useful and Peter’s teaching style made the course interesting and easy to follow. Don’t look any further – this is the training company you need!

Julie Burden, Marketing Director at Savage & Whitten Wholesale

We enrolled in Adobe Premiere, After Effects and Photoshop training with Peter, and all were easy to follow and of a very high standard. Peter is an excellent trainer and has a great way of explaining new concepts so that everyone could grasp each step of the training. BigRockTraining were able to facilitate the training on site with us which was incredibly convenient and at a very reasonable cost. I would highly recommend BigRockTraining for any of your digital training needs!

Mark Collins, Digital Marketing Specialist at Mallusk

Peter delivered a superb and comprehensive course, putting his students at ease and filling them with the confidence to learn and succeed. I was able to go at my own pace and ensure I was getting exactly what I needed from this course. Peter is extremely personable, approachable and professional. I would highly recommend BigRockTraining to other clients, and will definitely seek their services again.

Julie Ring, Senior Visual Designer at SSE

I have dabbled in producing videos on Adobe Spark Video before, but Peter’s tips and working in the class to produce a video from start to finish really helped to make my videos look so much more professional. I found the course really informative and at the right level for me as a beginner. I would definitely recommend BigRockTraining to other Communications or Marketing Officers looking to develop their skills in their organisation!

Laura McVeigh, Communications Officer at Woodland Trust

The SEO strategy course gave us a thorough understanding of the principles of SEO and provided practical methods to improve our website’s ranking. The training was very well organised with a hands-on format that helped us understand and remember the content of the course. Friendly and helpful facilitator. Highly recommended!
