Designing Web Sites with CSS

Hours: 16 / Access Length: 5 Weeks / Delivery: Monthly, Mentor Supported
Retail Price: $275.00

Course Overview:

Using Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to design the format and structure of your web pages can make your life as a web designer and web design maintainer much easier! CSS allows you to control the appearance of text, graphics and page layout for a single page or the entire site. If you decide later that you want to make a change to the design of the site you can change a few lines of CSS formatting and have the changes made without having to change the structure of the page. In this course you will learn to build web pages to best take advantage of using CSS to design the look of the site. You will learn to apply color, font and spacing attributes to pages for both web and print layout.

ATTENTION: This course has a strict start and end date.  When a student enrolls into this course, they will need to work with one of our Training Assessment Managers (TAMs) to choose a start date before they can be enrolled in their course.
