HTML Introduction 2 Days Overview

HTML & CSS Logo and introduction course participants

This 2-day Essentials course will cover everything you need to get started with producing HTML and styling your content with CSS. You will learn how web pages are structured under the hood and how you can put together your own files for the web. We will also show you how to use CSS to control every aspect of a site's visuals: its fonts, colours, leading, margins, and more.

Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the syntax and structure of HTML pages
  • Insert tags, attributes, and values into a page
  • Define titles, headings, and page regions
  • Add links, alternate text content, and background images
  • Position and resize images and other page elements
  • Work with colours
  • Use correct styles instead of deprecated HTML tags
  • Design without relying on tables
  • Include padding, margins, borders, and backgrounds
  • Write selectors to target only specific parts of a page
  • Produce horizontal and vertical navigation bars
  • Style hyperlinks
  • Differentiate between external, embedded, and inline styles

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.

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.

David Swingler, Fingo, HTML & CSS - 2 Day Introduction

A great overview to a new subject - I will definitely be able to use the skills gained in the workplace.

Clare MacMichael, Helena Partnerships, HTML - 1 Day Introduction

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
