This Certificate provides the essential knowledge and skills required to build the front-end of web pages and websites for personal or business purposes. Students will learn to code, speak the technical language and implement designs using HTML, CSS and JavaScript – a mix of programming and layout that powers the visuals and interactions in the web.

The Front-End Web Development Certificate will be of interest to web designers who need to understand HTML, CSS and JavaScript to implement designs or make edits and updates to a website, and it will provide value to web developers who are building applications.

This Certificate in Front-End Web Development is one of two web design and development certificates available. The other is the Certificate in Integrated Digital Media.
