Introduction to HTML

Course Outline

This is exactly the course you need if you want to learn HTML code to allow you to create your own websites, either for yourself or for work.

Unlike other HTML courses, this one is based on a flexible self-study system, so you can take your HTML lessons at your own pace, progressing whenever and wherever it suits you. There’s also a course advisor on hand for support when you need it.

Pitman Training’s HTML training course is split into six simple lessons. It begins with HTML editors and designing a website, goes on to create an HTML file; head, title and body tags, continues with incorporating images and understanding hyperlinks before completing your learning programme with creating tables and adding borders followed by search engine awareness and publishing your site.

As you learn HTML, you’ll create a workbook which is yours to keep as a handy reference guide. And you’ll be entitled at the end of your training to add the prestigious Pitman Training name to your CV.
