This is a new certificate based on three existing CIS courses: CIS 195, CIS 295, and CIS 275. (12 credits)
Students will be able to earn this certification and then continue seamlessly on to our other CIS programs. Those who are already employed in the profession that want to upgrade their web development skills may also benefit from this certificate. This certificate may also lead to entry-level web development jobs.
All courses in the certificate are found in the CIS AAS Degree. This certificate will benefit those who want to:
- Be prepared for entry-level jobs in web development.
- Learn new or upgrade web development skills.
Web Developers design, create, and modify Web sites. Analyze user needs to implement website content, graphics, performance, and capacity. May integrate websites with other computer applications. May convert written, graphic, audio, and video components to compatible Web formats by using software designed to facilitate the creation of Web and multimedia content.
According to Oregon Labor Statistics (OLMIS), the total number of job openings for the Web Developers (15-1134) is “projected to be at about the statewide average number of job openings for all occupations through 2022.”
Completion of MTH 095 or placement test scores indicating MTH 105 or higher and WR 121 or higher is required.
