Knowing about other people’s experiences tend to help us make certain better choices in life. In line with that, to help you decide whether or not you should take courses with CIIT, here are some notable testimonies from our previous students:
- “Learning about animation was a long-time dream of mine back when I was in high school and thinking of my future career. Animation was one of my top choices but it was not readily accessible to everyone back then. So, I was really surprised and excited when I learned about CIIT’ s 3D animation course.
I started out with zero knowledge in animation and ended up with knowledge I can use on many different fields. The learning process was really new to me because it was the first time for me to attend online classes but our professor was really kind and helpful in solving and addressing our problems.
I do hope that future students can enjoy and learn the same way if not better than I did.
Thank you, CIIT, for giving me this opportunity to achieve one of my dreams and teaching me new skills!” – Jose Mharion Crus, 3D Animation Specialist Course Student
- “CIIT’s Digital Illustration class was a big help for me to jumpstart the career I’ve always wanted! Joining this class as a non-experienced designer has been a challenge but hugely rewarding! I was able to learn a lot of things, and after completing the course, I am now able to create the artwork I’m most amazed by! I even now have my portfolio – the very thing that previously prevented me from applying for a designer job.
Despite the pandemic, it has also brought some eye-opening opportunities. And for me, this is it – I finally had a grasp of the opportunity that I’ve been delaying for a very long time. Before I couldn’t find time to go to classes because of my job-to-home routine. But now, all thanks to CIIT for breaking the pandemic challenge, and for digitally making this class available!
Many thanks as well to our teacher, Ms. Joreen, and to all the teachers out there who are also continuing in fighting this challenging setup of online classes. 2020 is undoubtedly a challenge for everyone, but it also made a lot of survivors and more skilled individuals.”
– Kristinne Anne Cas, Digital Illustration Specialist Course Student
- “I really enjoyed this course. I learned a lot about the 3D Pipeline and how 3D art is made. The instructor is very skilled and knowledgeable in his craft and pedagogy. I also learned how to use the software quite proficiently and with a few more years of self practice, I can feel more comfortable and confident.
This was something I have been wanting to do since my 20’s. I’m glad I was able to do it now that I am 49. It was great. I am looking forward to taking more classes in the future.”
– Juan Carlos Bernardo, 3D Animation Specialist Course Student
- “I am grateful that I have decided to take the Digital Marketing Specialist course program with CIIT. I have learned a lot from the class sessions, made me realize that there’s a lot of opportunity in the field and it gave me more clarity that I want to shift and pursue a career in the Digital Marketing field.
Thank you.” – Margo Malabanan, Digital Marketing Specialist Course Student
