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.

I found the Web Development 1 course very informative, easy to follow, and highly engaging. I find the methods used to teach the course very effective. I finally understand the basics of HTML and CSS, and I'm ready for more. Where other guides become so daunting and lose me, the method used in this class made it much easier to understand the material and learn.

Taking Web Development 1 at Noble Desktop was an enriching and fruitful experience. I learned the basic mechanics of CSS and HTML and felt more confident speaking about these technologies back at the office. Certainly a worthwhile investment.

The class was unbelievably easy to follow and set at a perfect pace. They make it easy to learn in the classroom or from home. Teachers are friendly and answer all and any questions. This was the first class I ever took for coding and I am so glad I did. I feel like I was able to learn a new skill fairly quickly and I love bragging about it. Truly a lovely place to begin chasing your dream of proving everyone wrong who said, ‰ÛÏCoding is too hard. I tried and I couldn't do it so you probably won‰Ûªt like it. You are gonna think it‰Ûªs boring‰Û_‰Û This class will automatically give you a sense of feeling superiority over others who were honestly just not smart enough to look up Noble Desktop. The only place that will break it down for you so you can literally snatch the haters away. THANKS NOBLE DESKTOP!

The Web Development Level 1 class was excellent. I had never taken a class at Noble Desktop nor heard of them before, but I learned so much in 3 days. I was able to put my new knowledge to use as soon as I returned to work.

Web Development Level 1 was an excellent class that covered just the right amount of material and even had some time to delve into forms. The class size was perfect, classroom was clean, equipment worked well without issues. The course was very well organized, exercises were well thought-out and were easy to navigate through. Victoria was an amazing instructor, she knew her material very well, was very kind, helpful and supportive. I highly recommend the class and the school.

Noble's learning and instruction approach is very well-structured and organized. You learn (and code) a lot in three days. Web Development Level 1 is a great introduction to the world of Web Development. I look forward to moving to Level 2.

Web Development Level 1 is an excellent introduction to HTML and CSS coding. The fundamental elements were explained and hands-on exercises bolstered an understanding of each function. If you are looking to build a simple web site or gain knowledge of basic coding for customization of existing sites this course is definitely helpful.

I really enjoyed the format of this class. It is taught in a way that just "clicks" with my learning style. Watching the instructor go through the lesson first and give extra tips to help solidify the information outside of what is written in the workbook is immeasurably helpful. While I came into the class familiar with the basics of HTML, the course helped to show the "why" behind the process. The instructors have been very knowledgeable and are readily available to answer questions or clarify the content. I would certainly recommend this course to anyone looking to learn HTML from the ground up. The hands on approach is just what is needed in this type of course.

I signed up for the Web Development Certificate. This was the first class of many and it was great! They covered many topics and Victoria, my teacher, did an excellent job explaining everything. I had zero experience going into the class and I came out of it knowing a lot. I highly recommend Noble Desktop.
