Who is this course for

Anyone involved in web development from static HTML pages through client-side coding (JavaScript) and server-side coding (PHP, Python, C#, Ruby, Java, etc) will find this course important to their fundamental knowledge, including those looking to include XML usage within their enterprise.

Purpose of the course

The course provides the skills and confidence to those looking to maintain, troubleshoot and optimise existing website content - as well as upgrading older content to newer HTML5 structures. Of strong value throughout the course is the appreciation of standards (syntactical and legal) and how good/bad websites can improve or alienate business opportunities.

You will learn how to

Use HTML elements and attributes to mark up page content for a modern web
Structure content using HTML5 elements for semantic mark up
Embed images, audio and video media to web pages
Link pages for fast navigation between related content
Style and brand page content through effective use of CSS
Troubleshoot issues caused by incorrect/misinterpreted markup
Understand fundamental principles of advanced website development


Although no prior knowledge is assumed, delegates should have a basic working knowledge of information technology and surfing the internet. Anyone who has ever used Amazon, google, YouTube or Facebook will be fine!

Benefits for you as an individual

You're not going to build the next Facebook or Twitter after this course - but you certainly will be able to create your own branded web presence, as well as updating existing intranet sites for the modern web.  We've all come across websites that could do with a makeover or a small tweak here and there to fix things - after this course, you really CAN tell people what to do to make improvements!

Benefits for your organisation

An easy-to-use website with clear navigation is a very cost-effective method of presenting organisational information instantly to a global audience.  Conversely, a badly-designed website targeted at specific browser audiences adversely impacts the organisation's reputation, constituting a barrier to vital information and accounting for lost sales. Having staff that understand HTML and CSS can be a deciding factor determining which category describes your organisation.
