"After spending several years in the video production industry I decided that I wanted to strengthen my understanding of Web technology and Web design in particular. Living in Austin, TX, I researched several local educational options and decided on ACC's Webmaster Certificate Program. This program came highly rated and was even given a ringing endorsement from a former colleague of mine who received her Webmaster Certificate from ACC a few years back. After completing the design track I can say that my experience definitely lived up to the reviews.
My instructors were top-notch and provided all of the resources needed to succeed. Each course, whether on campus or distance-learning, facilitated open communication and students were encouraged to engage each other as well as faculty with questions and ideas about course material. Not only was I able to learn from my instructors, but from classmates as well.
After completing this program I feel significantly more capable and confident as a Web designer than I would have imagined when I first enrolled. I fully credit the ACC Webmaster Certificate program for getting me to this point and would recommend it to anyone looking to advance their knowledge in this field. "

"I have a B.S. in Computer Science and I decided I wanted to obtain the Webmaster Certificate from ACC Continuing Education Department, for both the Programming and Design tracks. Thus far, I have only taken classes with Greg Hervey and Judy Cannon; both of which are truly top notch instructors!
Greg's courses are always current and updated to reflect the current standards. He puts information in his courses to cover the older versions of Dreamweaver, as well as the currently released version. He has impeccable attention to detail, and it shows in his work, which I greatly appreciate.
Judy is always readily available and is quick to give direction. Believe me, you will eventually get lost when learning code, so it is imperative that you have an instructor who is ready and willing to give you direction. She is very encouraging and I greatly appreciate her encouragement.
Thus far, with the classes I have taken, I am a little over half way completed with the Webmaster Certificate Program; and I am confident with the directions from Greg, Judy, and Marcela (the Program Coordinator), that I will succeed in this endeavor.
For anyone seeking knowledge in Web Design and Programming, I strongly recommend the Webmaster Certificate Program at ACC Continuing Education. "

"The Webmaster Program at ACC was an ideal fit for me to continue my professional development in web design and provided the flexibility I needed with my schedule. The Design Track broadened my familiarity with content management systems, enhanced my graphic design skills, and gave me the foundation with HTML coding and CSS style sheets required to be successful as a Web Designer and Producer. Putting all of my learnings to practice with the Capstone project was a valuable test of my abilities and put a solid practice in place with clients. Following the step-by-step approach of defining project objectives, developing wireframes, designing visual comps, and then moving to final production proved to streamline the process with my client and guarantee satisfaction. Thank you to Mr. Greg Hervey for his ongoing accessibility to me throughout the program, his attention to detail in trouble shooting problems, and his well-crafted courses which displayed his vast technical and industry knowledge.

"This was the first time I have ever taken an online course and found it to be much better than expected. Mr. Hervey was very accessible and answered all of my questions within 24 hours. The direction on the lessons were clear and easy to follow. The explanations provided in addition to the step-by-step directions were also very helpful in understanding the lessons and answered a lot of my questions before I had to ask. All in all, I enjoyed the online teaching style and the content of the course. "

"The Webmaster Certificate Program has helped me gain a much more thorough understanding of code and of web interface design. For the cost of one corporate 3-day workshop, I was able to spend over a year honing my skills under the guidance of knowledgeable instructors, and I did so on my own time through convenient online courses. I will likely continue taking courses at ACC to refresh my skills."
Lisa Wade, April 26, 2014
"I wasn't sure what to expect when I signed up for the Web Design program. Most of the classes are available online. I had never taken an online class but was attracted by the prospect of saving precious time in travel and having the flexiblilty to work around my schedule. Each class was challenging yet attainable. I took a couple of classes on campus and enjoyed meeting other students, who varied in ages and experience. The teachers are highly knowledgeable, experienced and keep up with new changes in this cutting-edge field. I feel I have a good foundation with which to start my new career as a Web Designer and look forward to taking more classes."

"I really enjoyed the Program, I would recommend it to anyone looking to learn more about Web development. All the classes were very in depth and informative and I learned a lot from the courses. I am definitely a better web developer thanks to have taken this program and the best part is it's very flexible and all the classes are available online for those of us who have busy schedules and if you get stuck there is great instructors like Judy Cannon, and Greg Hervey, who are very knowledgeable and are there to help answer any questions and guide you. I look forward to taking many more Web classes here with ACC."

"I thoroughly enjoyed ACC's Webmaster Certificate Program. The flexible scheduling options made it very easy to schedule around work and still remain on track with the program. The faculty and staff is very informed on the material and always willing to help you gain the most knowledge about the subject matter. I would highly recommend this program to anyone wishing to seek a Webmaster Certificate."

"I found a job ... and I start in a couple of weeks. I want to convey what the ACC Webmaster Program did for me when I changed careers. I was let go from a manufacturing company after a 13 year career as a technical trainer. Since the job market was and still is struggling, not many technical companies were hiring so I knew I had to do something drastic.
My passion has always been art and I wanted to combine my technical skills with my creative abilities and find a new career. I found the ACC Webmaster Program and I enrolled immediately. I took every class I could and focused on both the Graphic and Programming tracks soon realizing how all the programs related to one another to enhance the user experience.
Now, having only my Capstone Project left to complete, I started interviewing with companies of all sizes and demographics and I was offered 3 internships and 1 job after attending a student job fair. Most of the recruiters I spoke with were impressed with the fact that I possess Design and Programming skills as not many people are crossed trained.
I just want to thank you for your guidance and give a shout out to my favorite instructor, Greg Hervey, who was an AMAZING teacher and resource during my time with ACC. I could not have done all of this without you and this program."

"I really enjoyed the program, and it has helped to open up some more career opportunities. When I started taking the classes I wasn't sure I would finish or if I did, when. This ended up being one of the best things that could have happened to me."

"I learned so much doing the Capstone Project. ACC has a great program, and my advisor, Greg Hervey, was an excellent resource. His feedback made so much difference in the quality of the website."
Karen Blanco, January 3, 2012
"Thank you very much. I've really enjoyed the Webmaster program and all that I've learned... I had a lot of fun and did learn a lot. Thank you so much for having a program that is helping me move on to my second career. Thanks also to my instructors, Judy Cannon and of course Greg Hervey for all that I've learned from them."

"The Webmaster program at ACC is full of opportunities to learn sophisticated tools and techniques. Having this high quality resource available at a modest cost is a huge asset; I urge you to take advantage of it.
I have really enjoyed this program. The classroom courses were incredible, so full of practical and invaluable information. The instructors have years of real-world experiences that really bring the topics to life. (I especially enjoyed classes by Greg Hervey and Seán Gilkey.) I took several of the online courses too and really enjoyed the convenience. I also appreciated that the courses are short and compact. It is so much easier to fit a short 2 - 4 week class into a busy schedule, rather than a class that lasts an entire semester.
Even though it was quite challenging at times, I had a blast in this program! The Capstone project especially is a real skill-builder. When one class was over, I could hardly wait to take the next one. Since there is always something new to learn, I definitely plan to take more Webmaster classes at ACC in the future."

"I have so much enjoyed this set of classes at ACC and have been recommending them to friends and coworkers. This line of training is staffed with professionals who are not only well versed in this field, but also very entertaining. All of the classes I have attended including the online classes were very informative and interesting. I look forward to more educational paths at ACC."

"I have learned a great deal in the online classes. I am very impressed that I was able to learn as much as I did ... by taking ALL online classes. The classes were extremely rewarding and fun. Greg Hervey is very impressive. I chose him as my capstone advisor because of the classes I chose to take with him. His lessons, response time to questions and homework assignments, and his knowledge are beyond what I expected from the course ... Thanks."

"Looking at the latest course catalog, I think you are definitely steering this program in the right direction! Keep up the good work! Keep adding classes, but don't lose the foundation of the required curriculum - Databases, PHP, WAP, Web3d, etc. - all very exciting looking courses! I've had a great experience overall. The flexibility of the online program has been wonderful. The instructors are fabulous! Registration is a snap! It has been a really good program for me, thank you for making it possible."

"I LOVE the fact that I can take all these WebMaster classes
online. My personal schedule finds me on the computer at all hours of the
day and night. So the online courses allow me to "attend class" at my
convenience which is extremely attractive to a working mom/wife who is
trying to further her knowledge and skills. Thank you for being so
attentive to my needs and for offering this program...All in all, I'm pleased with your program and the people that support it."

"I have thoroughly enjoyed the classes I've taken in the webmaster program and will continue to watch the course offerings for personal interests. The webmaster program has allowed me to make a transition in my career from a Tcl/Tk-UNIX scripting programmer to an e-Business developer working on enterprise web solutions."
