    Hi Everyone,

    Just joined and hoping to get some advice. Having now been looking at several course provider's for sometime, I am almost sold on doing the "web designer/developer" course with NITCL.

    Has anyone done this .. and if so could they let me know of their experiences with it and if it provided all they required with regard to their aspirations. I would ideally like to become a freelance WD/D, rather than working for a company. Is anyone else doing something similar ? if so how are they finding it ?

    hello to you all..

    Welcome to CF :) !

    Im not into web design so cant help there, but regarding learning with a training company, have you considered self study? It'll save you a fortune.

    I guess you mean teaching yourself using the relevant publications, and then booking yourself into taking the exam when you feel you are ready..

    Welcome!

    More important than any exams is getting some hands on practice designing Web sites. Learn how to build them, and get some practice building your own so you will have a good portfolio built up when you go to apply for Web design jobs.

    He sure does, and that's normally a lot cheaper than any other route. Check out our guide to self studying by Zimbo for an idea.

    A search on Amazon will give you a good idea of the books you might want.

    Had a look at Zimbo's link.. must admit it does make me think ! Maybe I should give it a go on my own..

    Can anyone provide me with a list of reading material that will fit the criteria for study for Web design qual's.. and indeed what qual's I should be working toward for WD..

    Hello firewire and welcome to CF.

    If you serious about web design you need to know where your going before buying books.

    Have a look at this thread posted by Zimbo it contains the link to Certifcation pathways for professional Web design.

    Also this section on the forum answers most of your question on web design:- CIW

    Once you have worked out where you want to go then you can decide if self study or distance learning is for you!8)

    Good Luck!
