About the Course

During this 2-day course, participants will learn how to apply HTML5 to realise its benefits in today’s web browsers. To work and create websites and applications in HTML5, web designers and developers will need to know first how that structure is constructed. Our HTML5 training course teaches you how to create strong foundations which will help you to later apply the rest of the components to take full advantage of these new possibilities.

This HTML5 course is for web designers who want to apply HTML5 semantics and structure that make their websites become richer and more accessible, as well as, using native multimedia for video and audio and building intelligent web forms.

Whilst it is not a pre-requisite; to get the best out of this course it is strongly recommended that participants also attend our introductory CSS and JavaScript course or have equivalent CSS and JavaScript knowledge prior to attending the HTML5 course.

I have now completed a few classes taught by Cath, her mentoring has me confident with all units we have covered. The content of the course and the way it was delivered was challenging but clear and understandable. I am happy with the pace and the detail and I look forward to completing more courses with DWT.
