Finally you know...
This is Where You Start Your Development Career
HTML5 is the scaffolding that lies beneath almost every contemporary application.
There was a time when only web designers needed to know HTML5 well. However, it's now a universal skill that every developer needs. Strong HTML5 provides a strong foundation for apps. It also allows you to correctly develop content that appears on web sites, in mobile apps and even digital signage.
How do you learn to create strong HTML5 code that can be easily maintained?
That's what we're here to talk about...
FACT: HTML5 is the First Language You Need to Know
(...and an important part of web and mobile developers' daily work)
We get the question all the time: I want to become a developer, but I don't know where to start.
We don't have to sell you on the idea of becoming a developer. If you're you here, you already know it's one of the most lucrative (and fastest growing) career tracks out there. It's HTML5 that allows you to get your foot in the door. HTML5 developers:
In other other words, HTML5 development skills are critical to all developers. HTML5 is the foundation to almost any development process.
That's why business, design studios, development shops and other organizations need HTML5 developers.
But there's a problem. Most people who learned HTML, learned it in school 12 years ago and have no idea that they're doing.
That's how you separate yourself from the pack.
As a Certified HTML5 Specialist, you are qualified to build, maintain and edit HTML5 documents. You'll be able to help development teams build strong foundations, manage digital content or use HTML5 as a foundation for a strong developer skill set.
In this certification program you will learn:
In summary, certified HTML5 specialists are experts who are able to correctly construct rich digital documents that can appear anywhere on the web, mobile or as part of a larger application. They are able to understand how HTML5 fits into the larger context of web and mobile development and work in serious development environments.
So, if you're interested in starting on the path to professional development:
What's Stopping You?
(and.. Exactly Why You Might Want to Get Certified)
Honestly, anyone can claim they know HTML5. So how do you separate the talkers from those who are true experts?
Technical skill verification is a huge problem...
We had the same issue here at LearnToProgram. Even though we primarily teach development, we also use development skills everyday on our own digital, online content and apps.
We're teachers first, but we're also developers.
We hire people with HTML5 and other web and mobile development skills to be part of our team... which is why we know it's tough to find truly skilled people who know what they say they know.
That's why we created not just another HTML5 course, but the HTML5 Specialist Designation.
We built this program so that you can provide verification of your expertise. Anyone can claim to know HTML5, but as a designated HTML5 expert, you can prove it.
How Does the Program Work?
First: Complete the Course
Each of the certification courses includes 5 to 10 hours of video training. Each course also includes lab exercises to help you retain the information in the video lectures. The courses also contain study guides, practice questions and activities-- all with one goal: To help you learn new coding skills.
Courses are designed to be completed in a few days, if significant time is invested. However, you may spread the work out for as long as you'd like. There are no calendars or limits on individual courses. Simply work with the course until you're confident.
Next: Pass the Exam
When you complete the course, you'll be eligible to sit for the exam. The exams include fifty multiple choice questions with a minimum passing score of 80%. The exams aren't designed to be difficult, but, to verify that you retained the information in the course. You have up to an hour to complete the exam. However, most people complete the exams much more quickly. If you don't pass the exam the first time you take it, you may sit for the exam again.
When you pass the exam, and complete the class you have earned your certification or designation. Congratulations!
Receive Your Certificate and Badge
Now that you're certified, you'll receive your printable, full color digital certificate. Your certificate will include a link to a digital transcript page which will serve as verification of your achievement. You can place the badge on your personal web site, portfolio or resume. You also can automatically place the badge on your Linked In page.
Many individuals who receive these certifications place them in their email signature and other highly visible digital real estate to set them apart from other developers.
