    Hi all, im currently considering a course in CIW v5 foundations, does anyone have any advice for me as I am a beginner.

    Also can anyone advise me of what the costs would be for this course?

    I would be looking to take it as a night time / home learning course.

    Thank in advance:biggrin

    Hi & welcome to CF :)

    The costs is totally dependant on how you study. You could pay hundreds/thousands of £££'s if you just blindly sign up to anything, however if you look around (and because it's their entry level cert) you could save a bit...

    On Amazon you can buy online training for under £40, practice exams for $83 direct from CIW, free study resources as recommended by CIW from w3schools. There doesn't seem to be any book relating to v5, however there are some references saying that you can use the v4 books, however I can't guarantee that.

    Hope that helps :)

    It's also worth bearing in mind that prospective employers in the web site design arena, do not pay much attention to certifications, they tend to be far more interested in what you can do. So, as you learn, start building a portfolio of web sites that you have designed, then you will have something tangiable to prove your skills.

    Oh, and welcome to CF 8)

    Hello again all,

    Thanks a lot for the helpful advice.

    This course is really something for me to boost my skills and gain more knowledge to build upon my existing, possibly moving on to more advanced / specific areas.

    I will check out w3schools site and amazon for material.

    I'll let you know how I get on

    Thanks again
