ICT40315 Certificate IV in Web-Based Technologies

National ID: ICT40315 | State ID: AWE7

Enter the vast world of website design and development

Most businesses and organisations have an online presence and websites have become an essential part of any organisation looking to reach out to its target audience.

Upon completion of this qualification you'll be able to be involved in both the design and technical development of a website, designing and constructing web pages and creating the look and feel of the site. With your qualification you could find a career as an in-house designer or work in a design studio.

Our Certificate IV in Website Technologies is the foundation and core development structure that leads into our Diploma of Web Development. Essential concepts covered include Front-end and Back-end development. You'll be encouraged to develop the independent thinking and problem solving skills needed for communicating and working with clients in the Diploma course.

Technologies taught include the latest industry standard HTML5, CSS3, PHP, MySQL and JavaScript using a range of development tools.

Gain these skills
  • Digital graphics skills through UX (User Experience) and UI (User Interface) design principles
  • Using a variety of technologies including HTML5, CSS3, PHP, MySQL and JavaScript
  • Testing sites to meet and comply with W3C standards that cover Accessibility and Usability, Findability and SEO development
Is this course right for me?

I have the following attributes:

  • Comfortable working to deadlines
  • Good communication skills
  • An aptitude for design
  • Keen to keep up to date with new web technologies and trends
What industry has to say

I have attended the end of year graduations of students from North Metropolitan TAFE for the Cert IV in Programming, Cert IV in Web Based Technologies, Diploma of Software Development and Diploma of Website Development. As part of the experience, I see their end of year projects demonstrated and have the opportunity to question them on what they have built and the extent of their knowledge. Those students are Industry ready. I have attended for at least the past fours years, probably longer, and continue to be impressed with what I see. The courses get stronger each year, and the students graduating have a lot to offer.
