We teach the tools of the trade so Creatives can do what they enjoy doing best - BEING CREATIVE.

At Labspace, we believe that the earlier you participate in a Certified Instructor Led Basic, Intermediate or Advanced Course the better your end product will be. 

Why? Today's Professional software is extremely powerful and versatile with many ways to achieve the same goal. Knowing what these are, you will be spending more time BEING CREATIVE. Simple.

Time is precious and costly. So why waste your expensive production hours surfing the internet and watching countless online tutorials learning "the how to's" or advanced features. 

What you learn and understand from a course in a day will take you weeks to learn online.

On every one of our courses we have had quotes similar to these -

"If I only knew this last week, I would have saved so much time"

"This is going to change my life!"

"I have used this software for 15 years professionally and never knew that!"

Master the tool and your valuable time will be spent CREATIVELY.
