Your Road Map To Success

After you complete the 9 required and 3 elective courses, email the coordinator at mnouzovs@austincc.edu and ask for petition to register for your final required course - Capstone Portfolio. If you are brand new to programming, you should take ITSE-1003: Introduction to Programming Languages (Note: does not count as any required or elective class for the Web Developer Certificate, but should be taken by non-programmers prior to enrolling in any programming class).

A Testimonial From Susan Madden -
"The Webmaster program at ACC is full of opportunities to learn sophisticated tools and techniques. Having this high quality resource available at a modest cost is a huge asset; I urge you to take advantage of it. I have really enjoyed this program. The classroom courses were incredible, so full of practical and invaluable information. The instructors have years of real-world experiences that really bring the topics to life. (I especially enjoyed classes by Greg Hervey and Seán Gilkey.) I took several of the online courses too and really enjoyed the convenience. I also appreciated that the courses are short and compact. It is so much easier to fit a short 2 - 4 week class into a busy schedule, rather than a class that lasts an entire semester. Even though it was quite challenging at times, I had a blast in this program! The Capstone project especially is a real skill-builder. When one class was over, I could hardly wait to take the next one. Since there is always something new to learn, I definitely plan to take more Webmaster classes at ACC in the future."
A Testimonial From Rick Hauenstein -
"I first inquired about the Webmaster Certification Program because I needed some immediate help with Photoshop, ASP, and JavaScript. After taking a few classes, I was hooked and decided to finish the requirements for the Design Media Track. But why stop there? With a few additional classes, I received a second certification in the Programming Track. My Capstone project for the San Gabriel Writers' League has developed into more opportunities. Several Page 3 of 4 authors/editors in Central Texas have commissioned me to create their websites. But the coup de grace (so far) is that I am commissioned to redesign and maintain the Writers' League of Texas website. Thanks for all your professionalism during and after participating in this program. I strongly recommend the Webmaster Certification Program!"
A Testimonial From Alexander Rapstine -
"When I wanted to acquire new skills for a potential career change, the ACC Web Developer Certificate program was an ideal solution. The flexibility of online coursework for someone with a job, a family, and other obligations made my future goals possible. I learned a lot as I took each new course, and Judy Cannon was especially helpful with her skillful instruction and guidance. I would highly recommend the program to anyone looking to make a career change or just simply add a new skill to their toolbox."
A Testimonial From Archana Mittadoddi -
"The program really helped me with my career opportunities. I have really enjoyed this program. When I started the course I had very little knowledge about web designing and developing. By the end of the course completion I am able to stand-up a website on my own. I would recommend ACC to anyone who is looking to learn more about web development."
A Testimonial From David Imler -
"I have thoroughly enjoyed the classes I've taken in the webmaster program and will continue to watch the course offerings for personal interests. The webmaster program has allowed me to make a transition in my career from a Tcl/Tk-UNIX scripting programmer to an e-Business developer working on enterprise web solutions."
A Testimonial From Cynthia Manor -
"I really enjoyed the program, and it has helped to open up some more career opportunities. When I started taking the classes I wasn't sure I would finish or if I did, when. This ended up being one of the best things that could have happened to me."
A Testimonial From Karen Blanco -
"I learned so much doing the Capstone Project. ACC has a great program, and my advisor, Greg Hervey, was an excellent resource. His feedback made so much difference in the quality of the website."
A Testimonial From Souhir Ben Hsan Kessemtini -
"I have a master degree in Computer Science and I wanted to obtain the Web Developer Certificate from ACC. I have taken classes with Greg Hervey and Judy Cannon; they both are top-notch instructors! Judy is very helpful and encouraging. Greg was my capstone mentor, he helped me a lot, he has impeccable attention to detail, and he's always available and quick to answer. Thank you so much for having this program, also thanks to my instructors, Judy Cannon and Greg Hervey for all what I learned from them and of course Marcela, the Program Coordinator. I strongly recommend the Web Developer Certificate at ACC."
A Testimonial From John Berezuk -
"I have so much enjoyed this set of classes at ACC and have been recommending them to friends and coworkers. This line of training is staffed with professionals who are not only well versed in this field, but also very entertaining. All of the classes I have attended including the online classes were very informative and interesting. I look forward to more educational paths at ACC."
A Testimonial From Kristin Eldridge -
"I wasn't sure what to expect when I signed up for the Web Design program. Most of the classes are available online. I had never taken an online class but was attracted by the prospect of saving precious time in travel and having the flexiblilty to work around my schedule. Each class was challenging yet attainable. I took a couple of classes on campus and enjoyed meeting other students, who varied in ages and experience. The teachers are highly knowledgeable, experienced and keep up with new changes in this cutting-edge field. I feel I have a good foundation with which to start my new career as a Web Designer and look forward to taking more classes."
