WebMaster Certificate

The WebMaster Certificate series instructs participants in the fundamentals of website design using the HTML 5 standard, the practices of website design using alternative languages for development and database connectivity, and administration of a web server hosting web-published files. There are three courses included in the series: WebAuthor HTML5, WebDeveloper, and WebSite Manager.

Beginning with WebAuthor HTML5, you will learn to create web pages and place those pages on a hosted website using the HTML 5 standard, and publish that site on a modern web server. At the end of the WebAuthor class, you will have that hosted website and be able to continue to develop and create new content for the second course in the WebMaster series, WebDeveloper.

The WebDeveloper class teaches you how to create or transform the data-gathering ability of their hosted website and create and connect to an SQL database to store and retrieve information on-demand through their website.  The course includes access to the required connection language (PHP) and a database server (MySQL and PostgresQL) to host the created databases.  Successful participants completing the WebDeveloper course will have created a functioning, portable, and database driven website. WebAuthor HTML5 is a prerequisite for WebDeveloper.

The WebSite Manager course teaches the basic skills and techniques required to administer a modern web server. The participant gains a more complete understanding of how created content is published and how that understanding is used to leverage web development techniques to take full advantage of the web server capabilities.  Students will be able to install a local web server instance on their local computers, use that running instance to view created websites as published, and transfer those web pages and sites to a hosted published site while maintaining design and data integrity. WebDeveloper is a prerequisite for WebSite Manager.

Certificates of completion will be awarded after the successful completion of each individual course, with the complete WebMaster Certificate awarded after successful completion of all 3 courses. Register for each course individually (offering information and pricing below), or register for all 3 courses at once in a bundle for a reduced price of $2,995 (course code XCOMT 047). Please note that bundled pricing is only available when registering for the 3 required courses at one time.
