Course Details

CIW is the world’s fastest-growing vendor-neutral Internet skills training and certification program for students and professionals. More than a certification or a curriculum publisher, CIW is a Web technology standard adopted by academic institutions, governments and businesses worldwide. CMIT is an approved CIW training provider and provides CIW official training materials.

The CIW JavaScript course focuses on the fundamental concepts of the JavaScript language. This course will empower you with the skills to design client-side, platform-independent solutions that greatly increase the value of your Website by providing interactivity and interest. You will learn how to use JavaScript to communicate with users, modify the Document Object Model (DOM), control program flow, validate forms, animate images, create cookies, change HTML on the fly, and communicate with databases.   This course is a natural step from our current CIW Foundations Site Development Associate (SDA) certification.

Students are provided with the following resources:

  • Comprehensive online course materials covering the entire syllabus.
  • eLearning resources – exercises, quizzes, flashcards and a glossary.
  • Exam Study Guide – condensed study material on the specific skills objectives you need to master for the exams.
  • Exam Pre-Assessment and Practice Exams.
