Dreamweaver course in north London

Introduction to Web Design with Dreamweaver Training (Level 1)

Our 2 day web design with Adobe Dreamweaver training course provides aspiring web designers with the knowledge and hands-on practice they need to build and manage professional web sites using industry standard for professional web development and design. This class introduces the student to the fundamentals of Dreamweaver with an emphasis on best practices and current web standards.

This Dreamweaver course is for people new to web design and development and would like to use Dreamweaver to build intuitive, attractive and accessible web sites. This class will cover design techniques as well as best practices for CSS and design standards.

The amount of material covered in class is quite vast (see outline below). It's therefore required that students are comfortable using a mouse, opening/ saving files and with the general operation of computers. While we will make every reasonable effort to help, students with insufficient skills still wanting to take this course should first consider undertaking an IT skills course so as to not slow down the rest of the class.
