Is this the right course for you?

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

As a minimum prerequisite, you'll need to understand the basics of CSS and how to write out simple commands such as font and colour changes. 

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