Who is the intermediate CSS course for?

This course is particularly suitable if you are:

  • A front-end or back-end developer who would like a more formal and less experimental approach to CSS development
  • A visual designer who would like to improve your CSS skills
  • An experienced developer who feels you've missed out on formal training

At a minimum, you'll need to understand the basics of CSS and how to write out simple CSS commands (e.g. to change font size or colours).

If the course seems too basic then check out our excellent responsive design & advanced CSS training which usually takes place the day after the intermediate course.
