    hi i will enroll at barnet college in north london to do a CIW professional webdesigner course.
    I am 18 years old with years of experience in websites i currently own a lot of websites and my main ones are
    purehotgames.com which is page rank 3
    and reviewgrounds.com which is my new website

    I am already experienced in websites and will CIW be right for me?

    It depends, do you want CIW certification? Alot of people will say that you do not need certifications in the web design field as your portfolio is your main "bread and butter". But if you want the certs to back up your portfolio and want the nice logo's also, then go ahead and do them.

    Another set of certs that I would recommend, however, is the Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) program. They are mapped to NQF level 3, unlike the CIW certs which are incorporated into other certifications. Plus they are more recognised.

    Hope this helps :)
