CSS is the foundation of a visually appealing website.
There was a time when web sites didn't have to look great-- They were often designed by programmers with little or not design skill. People were forgiving of poor designs.
Now, that has all changed. People expect your web site to not only be functional, but to look great. CSS will give you the ability to completely style your webpage to catch the attention of your audience.
Where do you learn to style your webpage with CSS and impress your audience?
That’s what we’re here to talk about...
FACT: Strong CSS skills are what separate legit web developers from the hacks.
(...and CSS is an important part of web and mobile developers’ daily work)
We get the question all the time: I learned HTML, now what?
We don’t have to sell you on the idea of becoming a developer. If you’re you here, you already know it’s one of the most lucrative (and fastest growing) career tracks out there. It’s CSS that allows you to set yourself apart from other web and mobile developers. CSS developers:
● Create the styling for content display for websites, mobile sites, and many mobile applications
● Arrange content to optimize user experience
● Combine CSS skills with other digital skillsets to excel at web and mobile development
In other other words, CSS skills are critical to all developers. CSS is essential to almost any development process.
That’s why businesses, design studios, development shops, and other organizations need developers well versed in CSS.
But there’s a problem. Most people who learned CSS learned it in school 12 years ago and have no idea that they’re doing.
That’s where YOU can separate yourself from the pack.

What's Stopping You? (and... Exactly Why You Might Want to Get Certified)
Honestly, anyone can claim they know CSS. So how do you separate the talkers from those who are true experts?
Technical skill verification is a huge problem...
We had the same issue here at LearnToProgram. Even though we primarily teach development, we also use development skills everyday on our own digital, online content and apps.
We’re teachers first, but we’re also developers.
We hire people with CSS and other web and mobile development skills to be part of our team... which is why we know it’s tough to find truly skilled people who know what they say they know.
That’s why we created not just another CSS course, but the CSS Specialist Designation.
We built this curriculum so that you can provide verification of your expertise. Anyone can claim to know CSS, but as a certified CSS expert, you have the designation and the skills to prove it.
