    Hi all,

    Just registered on cert forums today bcos i came across the site randomly & it looked like a good site to register with.

    I just wanted some quick advise on which certification I should go for between the CIW:Master Designer & Adobe Web Specialist Course.

    I've got a bachelors degree in Computer Science & I am currently going for my masters degree in software development, I'm looking to go into web design wen i'm finished, but I have no industrial experience so i'm looking some extra certifications to give myself that extra chance of winning a job in the real world as the competition is very tough in London where i live, I have thought long & hard about which certifications i should go for & have come up with three possible solutions:

    OPTION1>>> Self Study for the CIW Master Designer course, to establish myself as certified website designer b'cos it's pretty the only recognised web designer cert out there. also along the side create a portfolio of websites to go along with it so that i am properly equipped to win job out there in the real world.

    OPTON2>>> Self Study The Adobe ACE Web Specialist Course which requires me to pass three exams to become a certified adobe web specialist(photoshop, flash, & dreamweaver,) as you all know adobe systems is industry standard for creating world-class web sites. & still off course make a portfolio on the side to win jobs wen i'm done

    OPTION3>>> Suck it up, be brave about it & go for both adobe web specialists cert & ciw master designer cert along with a zend certified php engineer cert to make me become the ultimate webdesigner/developer8)

    keep in my mind dat i have no industrial website design/development. with that being said i wanna give myself the best possible chance of winning a good job with good pay in Industry

    First of all I would stop with the txt speak, it's annoying and unprofessional.

    Secondly get some web development under your belt before spending loads of money on courses because you may find you don't like it.

    Once you have a portfolio up and running you can then decide which way to go.
