The Web Professionals Certified Web Designer Apprentice (CWDSA-apprentice) examination measures fundamental competencies for aspiring or practicing Web Designers. The examinee must demonstrate basic knowledge of Internet concepts, HTML5, CSS3 and WYSIWYG (visual) editors, Web graphics, Web multimedia, Web site design, Web site management, and basic legal issues at the standard defined by this test specification. The skills and knowledge measured by this examination are derived from an industry-wide and worldwide job task analysis which was validated through a survey of hundreds of designers. The results of the survey were used in weighting the domains and ensuring that the weighting is representative of the relative importance of that content to the job requirements of a Certified Web Designer Apprentice. The intent is to certify individuals in a body of knowledge that is identified and accepted as the baseline or foundation of any Web Designer.
The exam contains 70 questions. Examinees have 60 minutes to complete the exam. The exam is currently only available in English and available at testing centers throughout the U.S.
