Level 1 CSS Certificate
CSS is as important to website design, as engineering is to building. It is the foundation of every website and is also one of the easiest coding methods to learn. While html is considered to be the grandfather of coding, CSS is what makes a website look better. Therefore, it is very useful to understand what CSS coding is and how to use it. In many cases when you are designing your own web page, it is useful to know how to implement the design elements in the back end. Even if you hire a service or someone to do the programming for you, it is still very useful to understand how it all works.
