Get certified in web development at NOVA-Manassas
August 21, 2009
The Manassas Campus of Northern Virginia Community College is offering a Web Developer Certificate Program designed for people who want to enter the web page development field.
The program covers the skills needed to design web pages for personal use, businesses or nonprofit organizations. Students will be exposed to the latest cutting-edge web design software while gaining the skills to create a complete Web site.
The information technology field requires workers to be certified in their areas of expertise, said instructor Renee Kesner. People who complete the Web Developer Certificate Program will be able to verify they have the appropriate skills for these jobs.
The program includes eight courses: HTML Levels 1 and 2, Dreamweaver CS4 Levels 1 and 2, Photoshop CS4 Levels 1 and 2, Fireworks CS4, and Flash CS4.
Each course consists of two hands-on lectures and one lab. In addition to learning a valuable set of skills, students will create a Web portfolio. Students must complete all courses and labs to earn the Web Developer Certificate.
Tuition is $275 for each course and the first course in the series begins Sept. 8. To learn more, call 703-257-6590 or go to www.nvcc.edu/wdce/pwregional.
