The Adobe Dreamweaver course for a career in creative web design

Web design courses are perfect if you have a flair for design and are excited by new technologies, and our Adobe Dreamweaver course will develop skills that could underpin a career in the vibrant sector of web design.

Dreamweaver is the favourite design tool of many web professionals and Dreamweaver courses from Adobe teach you to bring your creative visions to life using this powerful software.

With Dreamweaver courses from Adobe, you will learn all the fundamentals of the world wide web; the essential elements to planning and organising your website; the functionality of the Dreamweaver Interface; all you need to know about working with text and images; as well as page layout control, including Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and HTML.

Create content for cutting edge devices

The course material includes Adobe Dreamweaver Creative Suite 6 (CS6) Web Premium (Student & Teacher Edition), which features a fluid grid layout, an enhanced illustration layout, extended support for jQuery and much more.

Online Dreamweaver courses allow you to study at home to gain an Adobe Dreamweaver certificate in web design and become a confident user of Adobe Dreamweaver CS6. Adobe training is ideal for Creative Suite 6 because of the complexity of the Dreamweaver software. Our website design courses help structure the study of web design and guide you through the basics of site creation.

The syllabus for the Adobe Dreamweaver course covers all the HTML basics, as well as site creation using current ‘best practises’, search engine friendly page creation (SEO), Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and structured layouts.
