Web Design Certificate

Every modern business needs to have a professional Web site. Unfortunately, few small businesses can afford to employ a full-time professional web designer or hire an expensive consulting firm. The Web Design  Certificate Program is specifically designed to solve this problem.

The 64-hour (eight week) Web Design course teaches the core skills needed to become a professional web designer. Starting from scratch, students learn to plan, design, create, launch, maintain, manage and update a professional Web site.

Not only are students taught hands-on skills, but also theory needed to design and operate a successful Web site. Students graduate from the course with their own licensed web site.
