New for 2013 is this Dreamweaver CS6 course, designed to give you the skills necessary to build and publish a website.
In order to start a career in web design or to use Dreamweaver in the workplace, it’s vital that you master the Dreamweaver software that’s recognised by design and IT teams far and wide.
Some exciting features of the course include how to build mobile apps in Dreamweaver, as well as how to publish your website once you’ve finished.
Some understanding of HTML is good before you undertake the course, but not essential.
In order to get to grips with this popular web design programme, you’ll need to complete around 18 hours of study at one of our centres in London (High Holborn and Notting Hill) or Manchester.
In just eight lessons studied at your own pace, you’ll cover the following:
Lesson One: Defining a web site, saving a page, adding images with alt tags, adding text in code view, aligning items, page properties, formatting text, creating a text link.
