    Hello all.

    My name's Sarah. I'm 20 and in the UK. I'm a CAD student and I finish my course in about 2 weeks. Can't wait to be working and earning again, after such a long time.

    I joined the forum because I would like to find out more about home learning courses. Figured this would be a good place to look...

    Well, nice to be here! :]

    Hi and welcome to CF!

    You will find that many on this forum will advocate doing self-study rather than 'home learning courses'. Mostly because a course is often a more expensive way of self-study, with few noticeable benefits for the extra cash!

    Harry.

    Thanks hbroomhall & wagnerk!

    Actually, I have had a bad experience with taking a home learning course. I won't go into it though, otherwise I'll end up writing 50 paragraphs... :dry I've learnt my lesson though; always read, read, read into anything and everything about the course before buying!

    Just wanted to add that I'm planning on making my own personal website this summer, and so I am interested in learning more about HTML and CSS, for my own enjoyment.

    I've knocked up a pretty cool layout in Paint Shop Pro and coded it, but I actually havent bought a domain yet. :biggrin

    Instead of buy a pre-made home study course, you can always buy the books yourself and then sit the exams at either Vue, Prometric and/or Certiport testing centres (depending on the subject and whether or not it is available by these companies).

    As for html, you may want to see here. They provide some good tutorials on this subject for free (you can even get a cert after an online test :) ). Let us know when your site is up and running.
