Key details

Dreamweaver training course for beginners, teaching key techniques for creating stunning new websites and maintaining existing websites.

Adobe Dreamweaver gives you faster, easier ways to design, code and publish websites and web applications that look amazing on any size screen.

Our Introduction to Dreamweaver course introduces the powerful capabilities of Dreamweaver. You learn how to:

  • Quickly and easily design and build a professional website.
  • Use CSS to layout and manage your website.
  • Create, edit and optimise graphics to incorporate into your website design.
  • Connect your website to the Internet, and upload and maintain your website files.

This course is ideal for new and novice website designers.

Introduction to Dreamweaver training is available on-request only, i.e. one-to-one training or a ‘closed’ course for your group. We don’t currently offer scheduled (public) Dreamweaver courses.

We can host the training at one of our centres, or your venue anywhere in the UK.

The training can be tailored to take into account any existing knowledge you have, and the work you’re going to be doing in Dreamweaver.

Accredited Dreamweaver training

Armada is an Adobe Authorised Training Centre (AATC), accredited by Adobe to provide Dreamweaver training.

Expert trainers

Dreamweaver training is hosted by an Adobe Certified Instructor, who is an expert in the application, with vast professional website development experience.

How will I learn?

Dreamweaver training is hands-on and practical. You learn by creating your own fully functioning website from scratch, covering all related topics along the way.

There is plenty of time to ask questions, and you can take away all the files you create.
