What others say about the course

Danie Strydom

Professional Architect

"The course was great. With the course material we received, clear instruction from Lisa ( she makes it sound so easy) and the ability to go back and re-look at the exercises makes it just great. And then I have used the colour pin on many occasions with great results. Only gripe is that I cannot import NCS colours into Archicad, but I can specify RGB for each and every colour"
