Certified Internet Web Professional (CIW) Prep Programs

"Your decision to become a developer is a great step that most people wish they could do. At one point in the future, programming skills will be in demand even for the most simplest careers. Companies are already requiring people in non-technical industries to have front-end skills, such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. While HTML is hardly considered programming, it's an absolute first step in becoming a web developer."

Welcome to the Web Technology Institute. You'll find programs and individual courses here that will take you from complete novice to certified Web Developer in no time. I start my students with an Introduction to Programming course that gives you the fundamentals of programming, to get you started on your journey. From there you'll delve into mark-up languages, like HTML5 and CSS3 before continuing on to more complex programming languages.

My two certification exam prep programs prepare you to take the vendor neutral, Certified Internet Web Professional (CIW) exams, HML5 & CSS3 Specialist and Javascript Specialist.  We'll be adding User Interface Designer in the near future. My HTML5 & CSS3 program also prepares you for the Microsoft HTML5-CSS3 exam in addition to the CIW exam.

In addition, I offer individual courses for anyone looking to learn more about Web programming, such as JQuery, Javascript Game Programming, Node.js, Twitter Bootstrap and more. Scroll down the page for a full list of available courses.

How we differ from Universities, Community Colleges and Bootcamps:

Bootcamps charge huge tuition for short term courses, and cram so much material into the program that most students FAIL - beware of anyone who says you can become an expert developer in a few weeks!

Traditional schools offer courses on their schedule, and often the courses are cancelled right before they are due to start. And, your grade is more important than what you learn.

My approach is to offer long term courses, where your skill development is important, not the grade you get in a course.

None of the Bootcamps or traditional courses I have seen align with a real certification in Web development subjects, such as our CIW Javascript Developer and CIW HTML5 & CSS3 programs.

Mentored Learning:

Our students receive Live One-on-one Weekly Mentoring and code review sessions each week.

You'll meet with your mentor each week for a 1 hour live, online session. You and your mentor will review topics, conduct code reviews, and he or she will answer any questions you have about the material you are working on.

by Judy Cannon - Friday, 5 September 2014, 8:49 AM

Welcome! My September classes run from 9/2/2014 to 9/23/2014. My classes are self-paced, and you can hand in assignments as you work on them. All assignments are due by 6pm on the last day of class.

Please ask all questions in the class forum, and try to help other students out as much as possible. Your grade is based on points received from graded assignments and/or exams.

I answer forum questions during my office hours, Monday to Friday from 8am to 1pm.

Enjoy your class!
