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.

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.

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

The class started out well, but the instructor took things up a notch or two and I was lost at a certain point. I'm a beginner, but it seemed like the objective was to get through the whole book instead of making sure every one was up to speed.

Kalika was a fantastic instructor bringing patience and humor to every lesson. Thanks to her, I have a strong grasp on the topics covered, am confident in my skills and capability to delve further into the app. Kalika is the rare teacher who goes the extra mile for her students because she's happy to. One suggestion note is that there are a few lessons that start off with importing or setting up in more than one way for the sake of learning how different modes function. I think the class would benefit from taking time in between the demonstrations to practice that part before continuing into the bulk of the lesson - I found that I forgot what the take-away was from that initial portion of the lesson by the time the demonstration was over, and conducting that portion on my own created an interruption between the demonstration and going through the section on my own.
