Web Programming Certificate

The Web Programming certificate series is comprised of six courses covering web programming, web administration and website development using HTML, CSS, JavaScript, XML, PHP, SQL, UNIX, and Apache.  All courses are delivered via the CodeRunner learning IDE and require only that you be online and able to use a browser.

Upon completion of this certificate program, you will be able to:

  • Create fundamental HTML elements and attributes including links, images, tables, forms, spans and divs, as well as new HTML elements like section and article.

  • Develop XML projects that use DTDs, schemas, XSL and XPath.
  • Create PHP scripts that use variables, operators, control structures, loops, arrays, strings, functions, cookies, and sessions.
  • Create PHP scripts that obtain input from the user and interact with a database.
