We’re Not the Only Ones Who Think Our Online Courses Are Great

Take a look at what a couple of our students have had to say about their experiences with CD-ED’s online courses…

I have taken other post-secondary courses before and I by far prefer this way of taking a course, there are no rigid time constraints to adhere to, and again you can do the course at your own pace to a degree. The instructor support was amazing! I have learned a lot that helps in my day to day life, and there were aspects of this course I was not expecting that I was happy to learn.
Colin Shimwell, Business Accounting Student

CD-ED prepared me very well for the current job market. They emphasized evolution and adaptability so that I would be aware of changing trends and tastes when it comes to design. They also helped me in the hiring and prospecting process. They gave me great insight into how employers hire, and why they hire the people they do.
Michaela Miller, Graphic Design Graduate
