What Our Alumni Say About Us

The workshop week was extremely educational. The content was presented by the trainers in an appealing and professional way. Especially the fact that suitable software and add-ons were recommended gave the course a special added value. During the workshops these tools could also be used under guidance. So I could directly internalize the handling of the corresponding tools. Thanks to all trainers and the team of the FU International Academy.

Jakob Aschermann, Germany

I have to tell the total course has been a great experience! So many things to learn and normally hard to find, the main reason because you do not even know that they exist and you need them! Thanks a lot to Frank, Pablo, Sarah, and Orsi!! You are great!!!
