CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) is a vital tool for anyone building a website.

There are educational games and quizzes throughout the course, you’ll watch presentations and demonstrations led by industry experts who are there to help you gain a full understanding of the subject matter. When it comes to preparing to take the certification exam, you’ll be able to sit practice exams to ensure you’re fully confident ahead of the exam.
