Why CIW?

Why CIW Image

Started in 1997, CIW has become the most popular vendor-neutral Web technology education program in the world.

Built for the Web industry by the Web industry, CIW courses and certifications are designed using leading technological standards, rather than any one specific software or hardware vendor.

Some educators integrate CIW certification exams into their own curriculum by enabling students to conclude their coursework with a CIW certification. Others use Official CIW Curriculum for their courses, which can include ILT courseware, online supplements, practice exams and even virtual labs.

Educators can partner directly with CIW in a variety of ways to provide their students with a lifelong learning path to success. Job posting icon
