Class Description

I would recommend this training for both the person who is totally new to Dreamweaver, or those needing a refresher. Navin is awesome!
Dreamweaver student

In this class, we'll combine Dreamweaver's different views of our pages (looking at both code and design) to create a fully functioning website by the end of the course. You'll even be able to bring it home with you! Some basic HTML experience is very useful, but we'll also cover some of those basics in class.
