Such an informative course, feeling a lot more confident after finishing. The only recommendation I would have is to move CSS forward. Once getting to the end of the two day course I was consumed with too much information so it was hard to learn about it. BUT loved the course anyway!

The first course from Dynamic Web Training I have been to and would absolutely recommend it. Belinda was a fantastic trainer with a wealth of knowledge outside of just the course content. All of our queries and questions were answered either straight away or were found out promptly. The content ended up being even more than I had anticipated. 10/10. Thankyou.

Liberating! So glad to have done it as I now understand how much I can do myself using this program (without having to use external providers at $$$$).

Overall, I found this course to be really useful and enjoyable. Belinda is a very experienced, engaging and helpful presenter. The pace at times was a little quick, however Belinda did repeat instructions to ensure that everyone understood.
