    Web Design
    Are you interested in learning how to design web pages and websites in the newest version of HTML5? As you know, the main language for displaying content on the web is called HTML. But web design is more than just coding HTML. Web design is an exciting field that brings together coding, design, color, images, video, communication, business, and leadership. Web design is part of the software and online development industry. The U.S. Department of Labor predicts the growth of this occupational area to be 27% from 2014 – 2024, which is much faster than the average for all occupations. Searching the job posting sites, you will find the median pay around $64,970 per year ($31.23 per hour) and top earners can be over six figures. If you strike out on your own to follow the entrepreneurial path in creating your own apps, then the sky is your limit, and national averages indicate that 1 in 7 web developers are self-employed. The main reason for this high growth is the growing demand for new websites and website revisions. Web design styles come and go. New technology gives web marketers new tools to incorporate into websites. Expanding mobile and smart devices allow web content to penetrate into more facets of daily life. Growing concerns over cyber security will also accelerate investment by governments and companies in advanced web technologies and systems. You will learn the skills you need through the real-world project-based learning approach.

    You will also learn the key industry and design concepts, including Design Aesthetics, Wire Frames, Video and Imagers, Color, Writing for the Web, Future Trends, and Workplace Ethics. You will gain the design and technical skills needed to go from concept to finished product. You will learn how to determine customer needs, create a project plan, and produce the website. You will acquire and practice the skills required to develop quality websites. As you work through the real-world projects, you will develop interpersonal skills in communication and project management. Your work in this course will help to build your career ready portfolio.

    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.
