Established for over 30 years, City Desktop Training is an Australia-based provider of live instructor-led training in Adobe end-user applications, such as Adobe InDesign, Premiere Pro, After Effects, Photoshop, and Illustrator. Over the past six years, it has provided training to a highly diversified customer base, spanning over 3,000 business and government clients.

Acquiring City Desktop Training will broaden the solutions offered by Lumify Group, which now includes Lumify Work Australia (formerly DDLS), Lumify Work Philippines, Lumify Work New Zealand (formerly Auldhouse), Lumify Learn, Lumify People and Nexacu.

Since we rebranded from DDLS and Auldhouse to Lumify Work in Australia and New Zealand, we have sought to leverage our strengths and broaden our offering. “The acquisition of City Desktop Training perfectly complements the group offering; beyond our highly rated instructor-led ICT and cyber security courses, students will benefit from Lumify’s state-of-the-art campuses across Australia, New Zealand, and the Philippines. “We are thrilled to welcome City Desktop Training to the fold, accelerating our expansion in end-user application training and building on the successful acquisition of Nexacu, Australia’s leading provider of Microsoft end-user application training, in October 2022.”
