Training For a Career in Adobe Web Design - Thoughts

Posted by patrick

By Jason Kendall

To become a proficient web designer with relevant qualifications for the job market today, you'll need to study Adobe Dreamweaver.

For professional applications you will require an in-depth understanding of the entire Adobe Web Creative Suite. This is including (but is by no means restricted to) Flash and Action Script. If your goal is to become an Adobe Certified Professional or an Adobe Certified Expert these skills will be absolutely essential.

Learning how to build the website is only the beginning. Traffic creation, content maintenance and knowledge of some programming essentials should follow. Look for training that also include these skills (such as PHP, HTML, MySQL etc.), alongside Search Engine Optimisation and E Commerce.

Be on the lookout that any certifications you're considering doing will be recognised by employers and are bang up to date. 'In-house' certificates are not normally useful in gaining employment.

From the perspective of an employer, only the big-boys such as Microsoft, Adobe, Cisco or CompTIA (to give some examples) will get you short-listed. Anything less just doesn't cut the mustard.

Commercial certification is now, very visibly, already replacing the more academic tracks into the industry - so why has this come about?

Key company training (in industry terminology) is more effective in the commercial field. The IT sector has become aware that a specialist skill-set is vital to cope with an increasingly more technical workplace. CISCO, Adobe, Microsoft and CompTIA are the dominant players.

Obviously, a necessary portion of relevant additional detail needs to be learned, but core specialised knowledge in the exact job role gives a commercially trained student a huge edge.

Just as the old advertisement said: 'It does what it says on the tin'. Employers simply need to know what areas need to be serviced, and then advertise for someone with the specific certification. Then they're assured that a potential employee can do exactly what's required.

Working on progressive developments in new technology really is electrifying. You personally play your part in shaping the next few decades.

Many people are of the opinion that the revolution in technology we've been going through is slowing down. This couldn't be more wrong. We have yet to experience incredible advances, and the internet significantly will be the most effective tool in our lives.

A usual IT technician throughout Britain has been shown to receive considerably more than employees on a par in other market sectors. Standard IT salaries are around the top of national league tables.

It's evident that we have a significant nationwide demand for qualified IT professionals. In addition, as the industry constantly develops, it looks like this pattern will continue for the significant future.

Most people don't even think to ask about something that can make a profound difference to their results - the way their training provider segments the courseware, and into how many parts.

Trainees may consider it sensible (with training often lasting 2 or 3 years to gain full certified status,) that a training provider will issue the training stage by stage, as you complete each part. Although:

Maybe the order of study insisted on by the company won't suit you. You may find it a stretch to finalise all the sections at the speed required?

To avoid any potential future issues, it's normal for most trainees to insist that all study materials are delivered immediately, and not in stages. It's then your own choice how fast or slow and in what order you'd like to work.
