Skills Online Group are product partners and licensed resellers of Total Training's range of e-learning solutions. Total Training was founded in 1996 to provide the highest quality instruction to users of creative software. Recognizing that printed instruction was tedious, and classroom training was hard to find and often prohibitively expensive, John Bell (CEO) partnered with Brian Maffitt motion graphics guru (CCO) to create the first video series, Total AE. The response was overwhelming. Today TT remains one of the biggest names in e-learning globally.
