Course description

Adobe Dreamweaver is a powerful program for anyone wanting to design and build websites, and its great usability and functionality make it one of the most popular tools for the job.

We show you all the essential features and techniques you need to know about in order to use this fantastic piece of software – from using images and CSS, to creating tables, frames and hyperlinks.

Is it right for me?

If you’re new to Adobe Dreamweaver, but you want to be able to design, build, and maintain professional-looking websites, this introductory Dreamweaver course will enable you to achieve that.

What will I get out of it?

By the end of the course you will be able to:


  • Design and build a professional web site
  • Maintain and upgrade an existing web site and web pages

Having completed a few IT courses with different providers over the years - I prefer Thales and will hopefully be able to return again as and when further training is required.
