Webmaster: JavaScript – Level 4 Course


Get to grips with JavaScript with a Level 4 credited qualification and learn the difference between your JScript and your jQuery.


The Webmaster: JavaScript – Level 4 Online Course is a fully supported, self-paced training programme for those wishing to take up a new career as a Web programmer or those who simply wish to be able to build high-quality dynamic websites.

The JavaScript training programme has been designed to introduce students with a working knowledge of HTML to the fundamentals of JavaScript (an object-based, event-driven Web programming language), which tightly integrates with HTML.

The training programme consists of 10 individual lessons, which are designed to gradually build up and strengthen your technical knowledge. Throughout the lessons, interactive exercises have been specially designed to support the student’s learning effort, and multiple-choice quizzes and assignments at the end of each lesson serve to ensure a thorough understanding of the course content.

Students are taken step-by-step through the lessons using innovative, interactive, multi-media computer-based training techniques, supported by highly-trained technical support specialists. The course is self-paced with no time pressure for completion; the student simply studies at home or at work when time permits.

As the training programme progresses, the student’s JavaScript skills are honed via interesting assignments which involve the development of a number of dynamic, interactive games such as the Minefield and Connect4 games, which are both challenging to build and addictive to play.

The final assignment consists of the development of a technically demanding ‘Owzat cricket game, where the extensive JavaScript and jQuery skills learned during the course, are brought together to create a stunning application, which you will be rightly proud of.
