The Webmaestro Advanced Website Design distance learning course is a fully supported, self-paced training programme for those wishing to take up a new career as a Web programmer or those who simply wish to be able to build advanced quality websites.

Please Note: This course assumes that the student has a pre-existing knowledge of HTML or has successfully completed our Webmaster - Web Design course.

The Webmaestro training programme has been designed to introduce students to the fundamentals of JavaScript (an object-based, event-driven Web programming language), which tightly integrates with HTML. You will also learn about Dynamic HTML and Cascading Style Sheets, which removes many of the constraints that have previously limited the web author's creativity and provides a whole new way to make web pages more interesting for the visitor.

The training programme consists of 10 individual lessons, which are designed to gradually build up and strengthen your technical knowledge base. Throughout the lessons, interactive exercises have been specially designed to support the student's learning effort, and multiple-choice quizzes at the end of each lesson serve to ensure a thorough understanding of the course content.

Students are taken step-by-step through the lessons using innovative, interactive, multi-media computer-based training techniques, supported by highly-trained technical support specialists. The course is self-paced with no time pressure for completion; the student simply studies at home or at work when time permits.

During the training programme, the student is guided through the design and development of a fully-functional website incorporating HTML, JavaScript and Dynamic HTML, and students are encouraged to use their own creativity throughout.
