Hi all, I'm interested in becoming a web designer. Currently have no experience in dreamweaver, photoshop, Adobe CS5 etc ....Clearly i will need to do some training on these software packages and was wondering what the best way to do that is. I have spoken to several training providers and Adobe, all of whom are more than willing to empty my bank account for me in return for some qualifications. So far i have been led to believe that the Certificate in Web design (CIW) and Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) are the courses/qualifications to get. Am i barking up the right tree or would a self study and building a portfolio by a better option. Any advice and opinions would be warmly welcomed. Thanks Mr B.
