Our goals are for you to understand how to create and adjust your own HTML documents, and for you to understand how to enhance the visual appearance of your web pages.

Brilliant day - fun and informative. Covered exactly what I needed.

Lisa Simmonds, Penguin Books, HTML - 1 Day Introduction

Very good course, covered all the basics very thoroughly and took time to answer any questions I had.

Rachel Varnam, Airwave, HTML & CSS Introduction - 2 Days

I was first sceptical of this course, with regards to the knowledge I would gain in such a short time, but having taken this course, I could not have been happier. The tutor was fantastic, very knowledgable and helpful. I would not only recommend XChange training but would consider doing further courses myself.

Gary Carney, none, HTML & CSS - 2 Day Introduction

Very happy with the training and will be taking away a lot of HTML knowledge

Linda Diep, Optimus Education, HTML & CSS for Emails - 2 Day Intermediate Training

Great pace, level of entry and range of ad hoc knowledge made learning incredibly easy and enjoyable. Actually left feeling like I could be a Web Designer.

Bret Painter, UK Metro, HTML5 & CSS3 - 3 Day Introduction

Very enjoyable and informative. The fact that full and unrestricted access to learning materials and assets (i.e. presentations and demonstration files) was given throughout the course was a welcome change from other providers.
