Course Outline

This Dreamweaver training class is for people new to Dreamweaver. You will learn to create HTML- and CSS-based websites without writing any code. Although HTML and CSS are not prerequisites for the class, if you have some experience with them, you will have a better appreciation of the power of Dreamweaver. Our instructor-led online classes are conducted in the CS6 version of the software. Your instructor will point out the minor differences between versions where they exist. For our custom instructor-led online and onsite classes, we use the version of the software you use in your office.
