This one-day hands-on course provides a comprehensive introduction to developing web pages using Hypertext Markup Language (HTML). It covers HTML itself rather than any particular tool, so that even those who will be using page generation tools in their work will gain a good grounding in the underlying technology.
The 1 day course costs £640 in total for up to 6 students, plus VAT and the instructor's reasonable expenses. Each student beyond 6 would cost £10 for the additional course materials.
