Web Design Course

My name is Dan and I love teaching web design.

I deliver web design courses throughout Ireland for businesses and government agencies. I come to you with laptops or you can use my training room in central Dublin. Together we’ll find a date and course outline that will help you love web design as much as I love teaching it.

Learn HTML & CSS using Dreamweaver

Web Design Intro (3-5 days)

What if you could have the website you can see in your mind? The payoff is seeing your ideas on the screen the way you intended – knowing that you can make changes when it suits you – not being dependant on an expensive 3rd party to get it right.

My years of experience in web and graphic design make the perfect platform for you to learn how to make your website a reality. Using Adobe Dreamweaver as the basis for creating an actual working website (see the Dreamweaver training page for more details) I will help you from the very beginning. You’ll learn how HTML5 & CSS3 work together to create responsive websites. It doesn’t matter how much you know (or don’t know).

This is real world and hands on. You’re going to get the best training that gives you the right help at every step to build a real website.

Don’t be intimidated by the idea of taking on the World Wide Web. I’ve got the training that will take you from zero to hero. You also get take home notes so you have an easy reminder to refer to later.

And with a year of email support for those questions that will surface, you’ll be good to go. If you can imagine the perfect website, I can train you to build it.

Who should attend
