Advanced HTML5 & CSS3 Specialist

Advanced HTML5 and CSS3 Specialist

Advanced HTML5 and CSS3 Specialist is the first course in the CIW Web and Mobile Design series. The CIW Advanced HTML5 and CSS3 Specialist course tests essential HTML5, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and JavaScript knowledge. These technologies, known as the Web development trifecta, provide Web pages that easily adapt to smartphones, tablets, gaming devices and smart TVs, as well as to traditional PCs.

CIW Advanced HTML5 & CSS3 Specialist

This course teaches deep knowledge of HTML5 and CSS3, and thus assumes a certain amount of existing knowledge (such as basic HTML coding). This course is a natural step from our current CIW Foundations Site Development Associate (SDA) certification.


The CIW Advanced HTML5 and CSS3 Specialist v2.0 course prepares candidates to take the CIW Advanced HTML5 and CSS3 Specialist exam (current 1D0-720), which, if passed, earns the individual the CIW Advanced HTML5 and CSS3 Specialist certification.
