During this course you will use even more CSS to create beautiful layouts. You will also get to know CSS3. You learn to add special interaction and combine everything you learned during the first Dreamweaver courses.
PHP is included in this course. You will learn all you need to know about the basics and to get you on the way with PHP. You will learn how to implement PHP in pages and understand what is necessary in case you want to become a programmer.
This course is more technical than the other Dreamweaver courses but is perfect if you want to create professional websites and if you are going to use WordPress and need to revamp its layout and structure.
New This course can be attended at your own pace from home.
You will receive extensive, digital books and can count on homework, homework corrections, your test and extra help in between classes via email. You can even call if you need more help.
Extra: until October, we give you 10 minutes free video help per lesson!
During this course you will learn even more CSS techniques.
You will implement CSS3 to finetune your pages and add great styling extras.

The last lesson of your course or education module is the test lesson.You will do a few exercises that require the knowledge and new skills you acquired during this training. These tests take 1:45 hours to complete.
Since this test is quite extensive it takes more time to complete: 1 month. You send in your work on the agreed date and will receive tips and input to adjust things to make your design more professional.
After your test
Your test will be evaluated after you send in your work.
You may receive tips and may be asked a few more questions to make sure the result is all right.
If you sent in all required homework and the final test results are good you you can come over to pick up your certificate, or you can receive a digital certificate you can easily share and send to prospective employers.
With individual courses
The test should be scheduled within a month after the last lesson.
You can schedule the tests during the education but you can also do all the courses at the end of the education, allowing you to have lots of time to practise. This way you use the entire runtime of the education to let things sink in. Schedule your tests within two months after your last lesson.
Yes, this is absolutely possible. Now that all courses and educations are available via video training, you can book English spoken course from wherever you live.
All books are available in English.
During your courses and education, all the training can be done in English. This means you will receive books in English, and your homework assignments and other assignments, as well as your homework corrections, will be communicated in English.

You decide how much homework time you need.
You can decide on your own pace, this also allows you to combine more lessons, or to split lessons, have class on special days and times.
Single lessons: ± 1.5 hour
Combined lessons: 3 hours
You can decide on this yourself, you can also decide how much time you need for the homework.
You can book single lessons or can combine more lessons to get to where you want to be faster, this is great if you need the course to fit your schedule.
Single lessons 1.5 hours
Combined lessons 3 hours
Regular video training allows students to train together via video. This is similar to training in a classroom, but it's online.
This type of training is perfect if you want to attend a course from a different country, too.
This is usually the preferable way to train since you learn from other students' questions, but it is possible that you end up in class alone: we don't cancel classes since we don't like minimum attendance requirements. Every student is welcome if they want to train.
We set up a schedule which depends on availability and always combine two lessons. If your course contains an uneven number of lessons, one of them will be a single lesson. Simple.
With a personal video course or education you can set up a special pace. You can for instance combine or split lessons and have class on days and times that work with your personal schedule. This will depend on availability: if you would like to book a day that is not available, we will find another day that will be good for you too.
If you prefer, you can do the courses and educations from home at a special pace. This means you receive the lesson books and required material when you are ready to receive them.
You decide how much time you need to read the lesson material and how much time you want to spend on doing the homework. In short: it's all up to you. We can help set you up a schedule though, if you like.
Homework after each lesson
You receive homework after each lesson. Making the homework takes about 12 hours a week. If you only do the required assignments this education's homework will take about 5 hours a week to complete.
When do you send the homework?
You have a week to make the homework. You send the homework immediately following your lesson so your teacher can evaluate it.
Your teacher schedules time to correct homework in the week following your lesson. You will receive tips and corrections. There are guidelines for sending homework, you will be told during the first lesson.
About 12/15 minutes are scheduled at the start of each lesson during which you can ask questions and receive more tips.
Please note the software for your course should be installed before class, there is no time to install it during class and this would mean you wouldn't be able to do the exercises.
Most courses you an attend at learningTrain will need you to use Adobe software. This can be a single application such as Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign or Dreamweaver. But if you attend an education you may need more applications. In such a case it's best to purchase the Creative Cloud software and use this to install the software you need.
It really is advised to only use legal software. Illegal software often does not allow you to install legal software. But evevn worse is that some functionality in illegal software may render Wacom tablets useless, or certain tools, such as a brush in Photoshop, difficult or impossible to use.
Find discounts, if available, via the following links, you can sometimes get discounts of 40%.
You take care of the software yourself, as Adobe Preferred Partner we can only sell multi licenses and seats to companies.
You either buy the software or install a trial.
If you already own Adobe software there is no need to purchase the subscription based Cloud applications. The following suites are still perfectly usable:
Creative Suite CS4 through CS6
You will need to know HTML code: (X)HTML(5) and have enough knowledge of CSS code. You can write both mark-up languages by hand and you can create and manage stylesheets.
You can adjust the formatting and design in not only Dreaamweaver but in CMS like WordPress, too.
It is a good idea to be handy when you use your computer.
This means you can install programs (you will have to install software most times) and you can organise, monitor and manage your folders and files.

Heel fijn dat deze opleiding er is. Na mijn grafische opleiding is deze ook weer goed in elkaar. De echt technische dingen waren best lastig in het begin maar het komt hier altijd goed.
Weer heel degelijk en stap voor stap duidelijk uitgelegd. Ben heel tevreden.
Fijn dat deze cursus erbij is gekomen. Hij sluit goed aan op de anderen die ik een paar jaar geleden volgde. Ook leuk om terug te komen en zoveel veranderingen te zien. Nog gefeliciteerd met het 15-jarige bestaan.
De eerste lessen vond ik goed te doen maar ik raakte de weg kwijt bij PHP. Dat is voor mij te moeilijk en daar ligt ook mijn belangstelling niet.
Trouwe cursist al derde cursus. Ook deze klopt weer super
Deze cursus is een beetje moeilijk als je niet te veel voorkennis hebt. Ik dacht dat ik genoeg wist maar voor mensen die niet heel veel Dreamweaver gebruiken moet hij te pittig zijn. Het was flink doorwerken maar gelukkig was het ook erg leuk.
K. de L.
Ik ben over de streep getrokken door de docent na gevorderden dus vooruit! En heb geen spijt. Toffe cursus weer.
Goeie opleiding, heel praktisch. Door werkgever vergoed dus bofje maar ik kwam met veel plezier elke les.
Ik volgde deze cursus na zorgvuldig overleg met de docent. Ik twijfelde en mocht erover nadenken waardoor ik de eerste miste. Maar tijdens de tweede schoof ik toch aan. Bedankt dat ik de gemiste les ook nog mocht inhalen. Ik vond deze cursus heel fijn.
Webdesign is combining different elements: content. This content will be added on web pages and presented on their visitors.
Web design, strictly speaking, is designing the pages in those websites. But this is currently not enough, and nowadays 'web design' also means actually building and maintaining the pages you design.
Presenting the different content of the web pages should be done in an attractive way. Web design is not only about technique: it's about esthetics as well.
Websites should be maintained: kept up to date and adjusted. This can be done with a CMS (Content Management System), in Dreamweaver or on a multituded of different ways. This means you need to learn all about the pages themselves, and learning how to use Dreamweaver will give you solid knowledge of proper structures to allow you to use any editor and maintenance modules you want to use later on.
Dreamweaver is an Adobe application (and originally developed by Macromedia), just like Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign and Flash. Dreamweaver is used to build websites from scratch. But you can also use templates to make your work faster.
Dreamweaver is used to build and maintain websites that are online or intranet based. You can create pages, add images and forms and define your very own layout.
Dreamweaver allows you to see both code and design to check for possible errors and to tweak everything until it's perfect.
Dreamweaver's biggest asset is the total freedom: you can design and build anything, use templates and even combine it with WordPress and other CMS.
You can quickly adjust colours and move content around: you're designing layouts. Dreamweaver is perfect for this.
No, Dreamweaver is not difficult provided you learn how to use everything properly. Dreamweaver has many, many features so it's a good idea to learn exactly what you need to get you started. You don't need to know everything, but what you need is a lot. You'll see.
The 'difficult' part is usually the code. Most students have never seen HTML or CSS code before, let alone written it. But they all learn it and have fun doing it.
As a creative user you will want to learn more. You will often find yourself fiddling with colour schemes and rearrange elements on the page: you are laying out web pages. And Dreamweaver is perfect for that as well, it is developed for both coders and designers.
Adobe implements the latest guide lines from the developers of HTML and CSS into the software.
This means an older Dreamweaver version can generate older code that does not have to be supported by modern browsers. This may result in elements that are not shown, or simply shown but rejected in layout. Some formatting may not be accepted.
An older Dreamweaver can not generate (X)HTML5 either.
But if you know how to write code and know what is right and wrong, you can simply use that older Dreamweaver. You should be fine.
You can use Dreamweaver to build a website from scratch. You create the stucture with HTML. You can write this code yourself or let Dreamwaver generate it.
You then specify what the pages should look like and what should be added on them.
You can connect to a WordPress site to edit the layout and structure. Dreamweaver will show you all you need to see to make this a breeze. It will be fun to tweak it all.
You can use Dreamweaver to design news letters and then integrate those in any system that can process HTML and CSS. And thankfully, these sytems almost all support that. You can decide what the news letter should look like and freely create.
Dreamweaver allows you to integrate PHP elements in static pages, or to build everything dynamically. Dreamweaver lets you manage and edit all possible types of pages and of course websites that have been created in no matter what type of editor. You can combine static and dynamic elements to be completely flexible.
You can connect to databases in Dreamweaver and allow it to get the information that needs to be shown on specific pages. You can create special connections and specify what content you need.
If you use WordPress you will have a lot of templates ('themes') to choose from. But of course, the best thing is to design them yourself! And you can use Dreamweaver to do that just perfectly.
A popular thing to do is to create a beautiful portfolio for online use. You can use Dreamweaver for that: you can create pages with all your important graphics and images for the world to see and adjust the other content as much as you need.
Dreamweaver is often used to maintain websites. Because it allows you to see both code and design, maintenance is a cinch and will take far less time than other CMS based mainteance.
Dreamweaver contains a management system that keeps track any changes in the websites you build. This means you can tell Dreamweaver to check links, for instance, or allow it to notify you if files or folders are moved or changed.
Dreamwever lets you create and use templates. They allow you to quickly generate pages that are using the same structure. This will save you a lot of money since it saves you a lot of time! You can then freely change the content on the page and upload it to the server of choice. It's ideal.
You don't really need it, strictly speaking, there are editors that allow you to create websites without even seeing code. Or you can use systems like WordPress.
But have a look at the above 'Questions' button. The HTML code tells the browser to show it. The same applies to the column in which I type this. The HTML code defines that the text ends up in this column.
If you want to change that though, and want to remove that button, or any other elements on the page for that matter, you will need to know HTML code. Don't let anyone fool you.
Even if you use Dreamweaver, HTML code knowledge is incredibly useful. It will allow you to specify exactly what you need on the page. What's more: for SEO techniques (Search Engine Optimization for Google, for instance) you will need that very same code since SEO is mostly done in the code and by placing the HTML elements correctly.
HTML specifies the structure of a page. With HTML, you tell the browsers which elements should be shown. HTML defines what the visitors see.
For each such element you will need a 'tag'. And very often, an 'attribute'. A 'tag' is a word you use to tell the browser what kind of element it is. You need a tag to show an image, for instance. The tag for an image is 'img'. Nice and handy.
The 'attributes' are extras that are placed on top of these tags. You can tell the browser this tag needs something special.
An image for instance will need to be picked up somewhere by the browser. It does that with that image's source reference: it tells it where the image is.
No, HTML code is not difficult. Like I said before: the code consists of tags and attributes. You can learn how to recognise and write these during different courses.
HTML is a logical language that comes in different flavourse. Find out during one of the courses and get to know, for instance, HTML5.
Yes of course! You learn HTML and HTML5 during all the coding (parts of) different courses.
HTML5 code is identical to HTML, HTML5 contains a few more tags and options, you will find out all about this during the courses.
CSS code is important: it is at the heart of the design of all web pages. Again, have a look at the above 'Questions' button. It is there because HTML tells it to. But being there is not enough, it should look nice. It is yellow, has a specific size and is positioned on the left. All that is done with CSS.
CSS code defines the way the elements on the page look and even the entire layout of the page.
You need CSS to define how elements look and HTML to define which elements should be present. The two codes work together, it's not one or the other.
HTML tells the browser what to show.
CSS tells the browser how it should look.
HTML tells the browser it should show a paragraph.
CSS tells the browser which font and colour should be used.
No, CSS code is not difficult. It is a beautiful, clean language. It will be easy to learn during the classes, they are complete with homework so you really will learn it all.
You will learn everything from scratch during the 'HTML, CSS and Dreamweaver' course. You can also attend the CSS and Dreamwaver cursus if you only want to learn CSS and already know how to use Dreamweaver. You will then use CSS styles, classes and much more.
Yes, HTML and CSS are at the heart of many apps, be it for smartphone, tablet or even desktop.
To build your apps you will need knowledge of styles, stylesheets and positioning elements. You will have to learn all about creating pages to create the different tabs and menus in your apps, too. This is all addressed during the HTML, CSS & Dreamweaver Course and the Dreamweaver Advanced Course. You can then use this knowledge in any web editor you like.
Systems like WordPress are very different. You can't design a website with them. If you want to design and build a website from scratch Dreamweaver will become your new best friend.
You will find it's completely flexible and you can use it to create WordPress themes, and you can even connect to databases such as a WordPress database.
The code WordPress uses on its pages, by the way, is yet again: HTML. If something should go wrong or has to be tweaked you should know what to do. It always boils down to code.
What's more, WordPress uses CSS in stylesheets too. CSS and HTML really are everywhere in websites, blogs and of course Facebook and other social media.
Yes, of course you can. LearningTrain has a special WordPress course that will teach you all you need to install WordPress and how to set it up and use it.
You will learn how to insert different types of elements and of course how to connect to the WordPress database. You will even learn how to create that database yourself, this will give you all the control you need.
These are content management systems. In short: the content of the website is managed. Each text and image is referred to via a database and can be picked up at any time.
The way the website looks is not defined by that database. You can decide how it all looks if you know your HTML and CSS code, or you can use one of the default templates that are available.
With Dreamweaver though, you build your own template.
As a webdesigner you need a few programs to perform tasks you need to do at work. You usually won't need everything but some students need a lot.
With Dreamweaver you can create webpages and websites and of course you can also manage websites. You can create WordPress themes with Dreamweaver and for different media like blogs, newsletters and other on screen presentations.
If you do the publishing yourself a great asset is a proper external FTP program. Dreamweaver has many interesting options and functions but a real FTP application is a great addition for specialized tasks.
Plain text editor
It can be so good to quickly type some clean code. This helps you create a special stylesheet and format it the way you want, or clean a stylesheet that is not properly formatted or contains useless spaces if it was created by Dreamweaver.
The following programs are great to design the layout and structure of your websites, they help you move content around to see if it all works before you build.
Adobe Illustrator is unbeatable for designing websites. This website was designed with it too. Attention though: designing a website is not the same as actually creating it. The design is static. The website was built with Dreamweaver.
You can design websites in Photoshop too. It is a bit slower and clunkier so it takes more time.
But: you really need Photoshop to edit all the images for the websites so you really need Photoshop too.
If your clients want an animated banner or a quick animation for presentations you can create this with Animate. But: Animate is also used to create apps. For Mac too, by the way. It's handy.
PHP is a different code language. Writing PHP code is easy but the options are legion. It all boils down to understanding all the possible commands you can give the server to create and generate the content you need.
If you want to learn PHP it's best to attend a PHP education that will take you at least a year to complete.
We have a short introductional PHP course to get you started with it. It will soon be translated into English.
There are plenty webdesigners around who do just that: they only design the websites and don't build them.
If you want to design websites you will need an application that allows you to create layouts for interfaces and pages. It should allow you to insert text, images and anything you need to create a visual representation of a page.
This really is the number 1 program to design websites. It is so handy, you can easily move elements around and make things perfect.
This is often used but frankly, it's usually due to the fact most designers know Photoshop and not Illustrator. You can move things around in Photoshop too, and recolor elements. But it all takes so much more time.
You can design websites in InDesign too. It's just less easy than in Illustrator.
Yes, for sure! You can use Dreamweaver to create a design for a page and then use the structure and/or styles into your CMS (Content Management System). This can then use your instructions to format the pages on the website.
Some CMS are less persmissive though and won't allow everything. You can adjust the stylesheet though and test things in Dreamweaver to see how it works out.
Designing webpages in Dreamwaver is so easy that it will save you a lot of time. Yu can for instance create a page and optimize it and then use it as a base page for your CMS. You will see, it has a lot of advantages. It's so easy to design in Dreamweaver, and often much easier than designing through a CMS interface.
Without Photoshop webdesign is more difficult. In Photoshop you edit images, you crop them or isolate elements. Tricks with text and even restoration: Photoshop is almost necessary.
Photoshop can even be used to design the entire website. You combine images and add text to create the example and then use Dreamweaver to build the website. It is a good idea to know how to use Photoshop and not have to depend on others.
Illustrator is a fantastic program to design websites. This is often done in Photoshop but this is mostly due to the fact Illustrator is less well known. Icons and buttons too are usually designed in Illustrator.
All buttons, special illustrations and even the background images you see on this website have been created by us in Illustrator. Illustrator allows you to create graphics that will scale perfectly and that are light and crisp.
As a graphic designer you will often be asked to design a website. Not only that, your clients may like you to build it for them as well. A good idea to learn how to do that.
You can combine your great graphic design skills to create the most stunning website designs. The two worlds meet, be part of it and start creating websites now.
As a web designer your clients will often ask you to create an animated banner. Knowledge of Animate is crucial as a webdesigner. You can create animations that can not only be used on websites but on presentations on a company's intranet, or even in PowerPoint.
Animate is not only used for animations: it is also used to create apps. And apps are hot, you will need to know Animate to design. That being said though, Adobe has developed a new application. A new course will appear for this somewhere in 2019.
Search Engine Optimization is a crucial part of being a web developer but it may not yet be one of your skills. If you are not expected to optimize your client's websites, don't bother learning it since it takes a lot of time and research to keep your skills up to date. But if you want to offer SEO services, you will have to learn how to do that.
