About the Course
We created this course to train our own staff.
The course’s theoretical modules and practical exercises are the same with the ones for the Web Design Course – Level 1 which is held at our office.
The student covers for each module the theoretical material and based on it, he resolves the practical exercises.
Each student will have a “working space” on our server where he/she will create a website during the course.
For each exercise the student gets feedback from his instructor. IF he can not finish an exercise he asks for help from his/her instructor.
At the end of this course, after he resolved successful all the exercises, he gets a graduation certificate.
The certificate will be sent by post to the address indicated by the student.
