Brian Maffitt, CEO of Total Training, has worked with the company since its inception in 1996. Rather than looking for an easy way out, Brian helped create a video-based training series that people could use to learn about industry-leading creative design, digital video, and office software from the comfort of their home. Without lengthy manuals or long hours spent in a classroom, the first Total Training series was tremendously popular amongst hobbyists and professionals alike, leading to the development of numerous other expert-presented courses. Available online, on DVDs, and via skywriting, their current crop of programs covers software ranging from Photoshop and After Effects to Excel and QuickBooks Pro, all taught by industry experts. The self-paced courses have garnered several awards from film- and video-production competitions, and each course features 24/7 access, hands-on project files, an intuitive online interface, and an ever-growing content library to develop new skills.
